We have a "label writer" customization (that goes back to 5.2.6 days ;-) that we give to our customers that does just what you are talking about. It supports all the popular devices out there.


The problem/issue w/printing envelope is that companies use many different types of envelopes and it becomes difficult to have an OOTB solution.


I suggest you simply create a word or crystal template for your particular envelope, add in some code to drive it.. plus a "button (or two)... A lunch time project.

We have created a envelope template in word but we're on the web version which is terribly slow when it comes to mail merge. Trying to think of something that could speed things up Smiley Happy

We gave up on using Mail Merge for the tough stuff....when we did an envelope merge with 4 different Contact Titles that pretty much maxed out SLX...through in N different envelope types and we ended up with a Web Service that does the envelopes, contracts, Opportunity Quotes, etc. Fast, available world wide, redirection to your local printer, etc. Click on a button on the Contact, Opportunity.....the vbScript calls the Web service URL with the 'seed' paramters.....
