    So I am trying to print all my DIY invitations today. I bought all the envelopments paper, pocket, and envelops yeseterday. I can't get my items printed at the inviation shop as they won't use my colors or my fonts and they wan'ted $980 to print/paper/assemble for me to sacrifice color & font. So...flying solo now.

    I have to print our return address on the back of the 5x7 envelop (which is actually 5.5x7.5 (to fit a 5.25x7.25 pocket) and the front self addresses on the 3.5x5 envelop which is actuall 3.625x5.125 (to fit a standard 3.5x5 rsvp card).

    Does anyone know how to print these or have the template to do so? I would really appreciate the help!

    The only good news in all of this is paper cost me $190 so I saved $600...YEAH (I think...hope I don't ruin them)!

      If you use microsoft word or even publisher - you can set custom envelope sizes.... that is my suggestion, as i have never heard of envelopments.....

        That is what I did, but I can not get the text to turn sideways. As the printer prints it sideways when I flip it to Portrait from Landscape it swtiches my text as well. The 3.5x5 is too small to make an envelope as it is a minimum of 6" long so I can't use that function. I am stuck again :)

          You can change the page size to the size of the envelopes. if the envelope is too small you could tape it to a sheet of paper and feed it through that way. Just print out a copy on a sheet of paper and then tape the envelope to where it printed out. They make temporary tape you can buy.

                Hope I'm not too late to help but there is a special function for envelopes in Word. Select the mailings tab and then envelopes. Just enter the address and you can even change the font and colours. Under options is all envelope sizes and even a custom size option.

                  I tried this, but it doesn't work as the 3.5x5 is too small for it to allow and the big one I only need it on the flap in the back and it doesn't ahve that function.

                  I am still trying to do it as a text box and flipping hte text but having some trouble. thanks
