    I'm hoping someone can help me? I want to print a return address directly on the back flap of my A7 envelope. I can't figure out how to do it. I've tried Word using the envelop feature, I've tried PowerPoint, etc.. I can't seem to get it to print the address at the top center of the flap.

    Does anyone have a template already set-up for this. Please help!!! :)

      Hey there, I just made something real quick for you to try. It's a .doc attachment at the bottom of this message.
      First, I would print this off on a normal sheet of paper to see which direction you would have to feed your envelopes assuming it's a back feeding printer. You would put the envelope in sideways, with the flap shut so it is a regular rectangular shape (maybe a small piece of blue painters tape to secure it shut towards the bottom so it doesn't get caught). The blue tape works like masking tape but gentler, so it shouldn't tear your paper at all, but if the envelopes don't get caught when being fed through, then awesome!

      HTML Code:

      Here is some crazy ascii to try and show what the envelope looks like when going into my printer lol.
      It should print precisely in the middle, you may want to play around with the fonts and the spacing, but it seemed to work for me. Good luck!

        Thanks Sheeoni! After lots and lots of trials over the weekend, I was finally able to fix up a template to get the address in the right spot on the flap. My invites are done officially done!

          Congrats!! Did you end up using an image on the back as well? Is that what you were trying to fix up?
          I have been back and forth and back and forth about how I want to create our Invitations. I bought a cricut machine in the fall because I had a "brilliant" idea that I wanted additional dimension to our invites by making some kind of cut out along the sides. Didn't really consider that the quality would just not be the same as a laser-cut paper. Live and learn I suppose lol... but the Cricut has allowed me to create some fabulous birthday and holiday cards, as well as decals for christmas ornaments for very personalized gifts.

          Will you be posting pics of your invites or have you done that already?
