Dynamically create a standard business-style #10 envelope with WordTemplate.

This is just as easy as the other WordTemplate demos: Open the template, set data sources, and save.  The key to this demo is the template file.  It is dimensioned in Word to fit the exact dimensions of a #10 envelope.

Keep in mind that there is no limit to what you can put in the Word template document, and no limit to how it can be formatted.  WordTemplate will preserve 100% of the design and objects in the document while replacing the merge fields with your data.
