A reader wants to know if there’s an easy way to jazz up envelopes in Word.

“Is there a way to put a picture on the envelope in MS Word? You know, something festive for when I send Christmas cards.”

Sure. First, let’s create the envelope. Just open a blank document and click the Mailings tab at the top of the ribbon.

Then choose Envelopes.

Make sure you click the Envelopes tab when the window opens. Standard business envelopes are the default. You’ll need to enter the address and the return address.

Now, click on Add to the Document.

Your envelope will open.

Choose Insert at the top of the page and select images from your PC or from online.

You could also choose some of the holiday templates offered by Word. Just search for holiday envelopes.
