How to Address Envelopes on a Computer

Word processing software like Microsoft Word often comes preloaded with templates to design many different types of documents, including address labels and envelopes. These templates make it easy to create professional-looking envelopes just by typing in the desired delivery and return addresses. The advent of electronic postage simplifies the mailing process even further, as Microsoft Office can connect to several different electronic postage applications to print postage directly onto the envelope and skip the post office.
