Print Sample Envelope

Before you start printing envelopes, we recommend printing a sample envelope. This will help confirm your printer settings are correct and your envelopes are loaded properly. Printing a sample is a good way to ensure you don't misprint your envelopes since postage on an envelope can only be refunded with a mail-in form.

Sample prints are free, and you can print as many as you need.


  • Google Chrome browser or other supported browser.

    If you are not using Google Chrome as your browser, you must also have Endicia Connect installed and running.

  • A standard printer properly configured to print envelopes and connected to your workstation (either via USB or wireless network)

  • A blank envelope to use for your sample.

Print Your Sample

The first step is to load the sample envelope into your printer correctly. Whether you load the envelope face up or face down will depend on your specific printer. Modern printers will have an icon, usually in the paper tray, to indicate how to load your paper.


Once you've loaded your sample envelope into the printer, you are ready to print your sample.

To print a sample envelope:

  1. Go to the MAIL tab.

  2. Choose the correct Envelope option from the Print On menu.


    We offer many envelope sizes to choose from. If you are unsure which size envelope you are using, check the envelope packaging for details, or measure the envelope and choose the closest size.

  3. Make sure Weight is set to at least 1oz and the Carrier and Service fields are set to USPS FCM Letter.

  4. Choose if you want to include the return address, delivery address, and postage on your sample.


    By default, all three are selected. But you can deselect any one or two if you like.

  5. Click Print Sample.

  6. (If using Endicia Connect) Select your printer and paper tray from the Print Sample pop-up and click Print.


    (If printing through browser) Set the paper size to the envelope type you are printing and click Print.


    If your envelope prints as expected, you are ready to print the real thing! If the print was unsuccessful, review your settings and page orientation and try again.
