When you create a layout, one of the "layout types" that you can select is "Envelope".  Filemaker then walks you through the process of allowing you to select which fields should be on the envelope and where.  If you need to fine-tune things, you can change things like margins in the Layout setup.

I confirm, any custom format can be done and saved to be restored.
Prefer a specific layout for printing, and do a script to recall the print format params + printing.
