You can create and print perfect envelopes with OpenOffice Writer, the free alternative to MS Word (http://www.openoffice.org).
Launch a new OpenOffice Writer document.
Select Insert > Envelope to display the Envelope dialog box:
Enter the name and address of the Addressee (the RECEIVER) and the SENDER.
If you not want a return name and address on the envelope, clear the Sender check box.
When you click New Doc. button, your envelope will be created.
If you’d like to edit your envelope text, again select Insert > Envelope while the envelope file is open and then click the Modify button.
NOTE: You can insert names and addresses for Addressee text from a database by selecting the appropriate values/fields from the Database, Table, and Database Field drop-down menus and then clicking the LEFT ARROW.
To design the envelope:
Click and select the FORMAT tab:
In this self-explanatory dialog box, you can specify not only the Size of the envelope, but also the relative positions (with respect to the top and left edges of the envelope) of both the Addressee and the Sender fields.
To print the envelope:
Click and select the PRINT tab:
Select the way you want the printed envelope align with the sheet of printing paper by selecting one of the six alignment options depicted on the top of the dialog box.
You can specify the exact position of the envelope’s edges by entering the appropriate values for the Shift Right and Shift Down fields.
