Typing envelopes is a practical use for a typewriter.

By the time you:

  • open a WP program
  • find “Envelopes and Labels”
  • choose label
  • copy addressd
  • paste address
  • connect printer
  • change printer paper feed
  • confirm paper change
  • reject “black ink low” warning
  • insert envelope
  • print envelope
  • throw away envelope for improper geometry
  • print envelope successfully

My envelope was already typed.

BTW, if you don’t use an ink-jet printer, because laser printers use plastic as ink, the plastic will wear off as the envelope passes through automatic sorting systems.

This isn’t an issue with impressions made using a typewriter ribbon.
