TIP: to use these: click on "die line" to download; save the file; open the zip file. They are eps files. The software recommended to open these is listed here, but I opened them by dragging & dropping into PhotoshopCS5 and it rasterized the file upon opening. I found with rotating and flipping that some would print on 8.5 x 14 inch paper.

I stumbled across this website and I found to be so helpful. Do have any templates on Microsoft word, that I'm able to include writing on? I'm trying to make escort cards for my wedding with each guest's name on one.

Unknown said...

Awesome page/links, thanks so much! I've been looking all over for a "DL Envelope" template and/or lining template. Did you come across anything like that (with free download)? Would be MUCH appreciated! :)

mel m. m. mccarthy said...

Hi Andrea, I've looked everywhere for a DL envelope template & even began designing one, but the problem is the size. It's just to wide an envelope to fit on a standard printer as a template. I'd say your best bet is to follow the method that many crafters use of tracing a store-bought envelope in the size you want to make a template. If you make it on heavy cardstock, then you can trace it again & again for new envelopes. Hope that helps some. Best of luck! :) Mel
