Envelope templates can be created in a word processing application such as Microsoft Word or Open Office. Microsoft Office and Open Office each allow you to download and create envelope templates. One can easily download them for Microsoft Word, from the "Templates" section, on Microsoft Office online. Microsoft Word provides a special tool that allows one to create an envelope template with return and recipient addresses.
Microsoft Word allows one to use the "Envelopes" or "Envelopes and Labels" option to create an envelope template with a return and recipient address. The option varies based on the available version of Microsoft Word. To create the envelope template, the user inputs the return address and the delivery address. This template can be saved, in order to print later.
In Microsoft Word, enter the mailing address in the "Delivery Address" box and the return address in the "Return Address" box. The creator can print on an envelope after entering the addresses, by simply inserting an envelope in the feed box of the printer, and then clicking on "Print". If there is no time to print, the template can be saved and used later. For multiple address recipients, the mail merge option expedites the process.
