Envelope return address font using MS Word

Hello friends

I would like to format my return address when using MS word.
It is three lines. I wanted my first line to be Size 18 , and the other two to be size 14.
it seems to me , that MS word can only accommodate one size....
is that correct. ?

Once you have 'added' the envelope to the document, you can change the style of each line of the return address...

in your response , and thank you for responding ,   you have added the envelope to the document.  Once this is done, my result can be accomplished. i can then format the return address to look as desired.

What i was trying to accomplish was to eliminate those extra steps..  hopefully to be able to use the " Mailing dropdown > Envelopes and Labels window and have my      formatted      return address available  for use in the return address window, where my default address is selected.

Perhaps you have another method for getting my return address printed in a formated fashion on to an envelope?  
i would not know how, but maybe i could make a LOGO out of it, and then insert it in some way?

any comments appreciated.

Yes - that would work! I made this example using MS Paint which is included with Windows.

I used the text tool, adjusted the font size, then I adjusted the image size a bit larger than the block of text and saved as a .gif file. Here are the results:Joe CamelI simply inserted the image on the top LHS of the envelope as an image.Envelope

thanks paul.

that's one way..... lets see if anyone else has any other ideas.

The return address uses the "Envelope Return" style automatically, so you can modify the style to have it use whatever font you need. However, all lines of the return address will use the same style, so you'd still need to modify the top line manually.

Note that this style (and the associated "Envelope Address" style) are not normally visible. To see them, use the Styles dialog (Shift-Ctrl-Alt-S) and click the Options... button so you can change the show from the default Recommended to All styles. Also, when you modify the style, be sure to choose the "New documents based on this template" radio button to have your change incorporated into the underlying template (Normal by default).
