Envelope addresses can be fully formatted and styled. Envelopes display a placeholder address to allow you to format the text. Just click on the placeholder address to select it and it will be outlined with a green box and drag handles. Then use the controls in the Text palette to specify the font, size, text color or style. You can specify alternate fonts for multiple elements of the address such as the label name, first or last name, title (Mr. and Mrs.), house number, street address, city, state, zip, capital letter, roman numerals and more. Below are samples of possible address styles using a variety of settings. The settings used in each example are listed below the example.

PrintingPress Extreme 8.0 lets you pin images to the left, right, top or bottom if the address. The image will be positioned according to the size of the address so that it is moved down for longer addresses or up for shorter addresses. Pair the image with a specific address element to keep the image properly placed for longer or shorter addresses. You can also mirror the image to the other side of the address for a truly professional look.
