Now that you know the theory of producing great envelopes, it's time to try it out. Have a go at addressing an envelope, adding some WordArt, and printing it.

You're working at the National Museum in Seattle, and you'll be sending a letter to Mr. Tran, of San Diego.

Don't forget to have the printer you'll be using switched on, plugged in, and ready go. Also, have some envelopes (plus spares) handy. Don't worry if you're using a different printer than normal for printing the envelope; the practice steps explain how to change your printer.

About the practice session
