How can I simply print an envelope or two from my Mac to any printer that can handle envelopes? I'm printing directly on the envelope, but it's a standard #10 envelope--no labels, no odd sizes. I'd like USPS barcodes. I've got a copy of EasyEnvelopes and I've been trying to print from it, but nothing happens on my printer and I can't update it because they charge for it now. Printing other docs works fine. [more inside]
These two envelopes arrived in my office in the autumn of 2010. I've kept them around because they're neat-looking, and an interesting conversation piece. Can you translate into English what's written on them? They may be in Japanese or Chinese (?). [more inside]
What is the cost for a machine that stuffs regular-size papers (8.5x11 and A4) into an envelope (folded) or larger manilla envelope (no folding)? Any tips on how to get one used/for the lowest possible price?
Hi everyone. I recently visited an online map where people who share a very unusual niche hobby place a pin where they live, voluntarily including an address or name if they'd like, and I found to my pleasant shock that a fellow enthusiast lives only a few blocks from me. He/she left a contact address but not a name, and I'd really love to write to this person, but I have no idea what the normal etiquette is for addressing a personal envelope to an unnamed recipient (to be clear, I don't mean the letter itself, but the envelope).

Looking at the Universal Postal Union pages on the matter, addresses on envelopes are usually right-justified and appear below the stamp. Why is this the case. Also, are the UK and Ireland the only exceptions?

About ten years ago I picked up an amazing collection of 114 (mint condition, plastic-sleeved) vintage first day issue stamps/envelopes at a thrift store. Been simplifying my belongings and I'm thinking it's time to sell them. Hey you stamp collectors... what are your recommendations? [more inside]

I want to print a variety of different sized envelopes on my Mac Mini and cheap-o Lexmark 232 printer. I want to include bar codes. I do not have, nor do I want to guy, Office Mac, which i know has the feature. Don't know about iWork from Apple. NeoOffice can't do it. Snail Mail program looked interesting but doesn't work. AbiWord may or may not do it; it's moot since it crashes repeatedly. I'm actually having to block print these envelopes by hand! Ugh. /john
I have an envelope that's about 10"x13". Inside, I have maybe 15 pages of college application materials. And I have $3.90 in stamps. How the hell do I know how much postage I need for this thing? Should I try to figure it out myself, or should I just take it to the post office and have them figure it out?
Does there exist an Origami form that is an envelope suitable for a letter-sized piece of paper? [more inside]
Several years ago, I bought two huge boxes of standard envelopes from Costco, thinking “Isn’t this great? I’ll never run out!” I stuck them in my basement and completely forgot about them. I found them the other day, but now they are all sealed (due, I suppose, to humidity and time). Is there any way I can unseal 5,000+ empty envelopes?
