Here’s a question from Romina:
I typically use e-mail for communication with my friends and colleagues in our marketing business team. That said, i need to send an official letter to an university admissions office, so it has to be printed. I understand that i can use Microsoft Word not only to print my letter, but also to create some professional looking envelopes for my letter. Can you explain how can i print my envelopes with Word?
Thanks Romina, here you go. Good luck with your admission request

First off, set your default return address.
- Open Word, click on File and hit Options.
- Select Advanced in the dialog box and move on to General.
- In the mailing address, enter the return address on the space provided and click OK to set default return address.
Now let us define your envelope details:
- Open your Word 2016, click Mailing in the ribbon and select Envelope.
- In the Delivery address blank space, enter the address to which the envelope has to be delivered.
- If necessary use default Return address or else check on Omit to not to include the return address.
- Click on the Options, select Envelope options change the size of the envelope and we can check envelope look from the preview.
- Also the font for both Delivery and Return address can be changed
- Click on the Printing options to change the feed method, also can change Face Up and Face Down options.
- After all the modifications, select OK.
- Now you can either only print the envelope or add it with a document and print the envelope along with the document.
Creating labels with Word
- In Word , click on Labels in the Mailing ribbon menu.
