Envelopes and Labels LaTeX2e package Version 1.2 Boris Veytsman email@example.com home page http://planck.psu.edu/~boris July 16, 1997 This package provides a comprehensive and easily customizable system for creating mailing envelopes and labels in LaTeXe. It includes printing of barcodes and address formatting according to the US Postal Service rules. The standard makelabels command in the LaTeXe letter.cls document class typesets labels on Avery 5352 sheets. A typical user may want more. EnvLab redefines makelabels in (hopefully}) a more useful and customizable way. EnvLab: - Typesets mailing labels or envelopes on a number of pre-defined label sheets or envelopes. - Can be easily configured for any customized label or envelope sizes. The rule of thumb is: if you printer can print this, EnvLab can typeset this. - Can optionally print barcodes and/or process addresses according to the United States Postal Service Rules. - Allows you to include your logo in the return address. - Painlessly interacts with mail merging packages such as mailing. - Does not require special fonts for address and barcodes printing. The typesetting is implemented with standard fonts and LaTeX \rule commands. This package was written with US mailing standards in mind. This is not a reflection of the author's americanocentrism: US standard was only one I had official documents about. If you want to add your national standards, please contact me with pointers to the corresponding documents. The distribution of this package includes the following files: - envlab.dtx---fully documented program - envlab.ins---DocStrip instruction module - elold.ins---DocStrip instruction module for older versions of DocStrip - elguide.tex---User Guide - readme.version_number---Read Me file To install the package - LaTeX the file envlab.ins. It will produce three files: envlab.drv, envlab.sty and envlab.cfg. NOTE: If your version of DocStrip is older than 2.3, use elold.ins instead of envlab.ins. - (Optional) Look at the file envlab.cfg and change it accordingly to your taste. - Move the files envlab.sty and envlab.cfg to the LaTeX search path. NOTE: users of kpathsea based TeX (like teTeX) should also issue texhash to update the search database. - Produce the documentation by LaTeX ing the files elguide.tex and (optional) envlab.drv. - Enjoy! ---------------------------------------------------------------------- What's new in version 1.2 - Bug fixes. The package is now compatible with amsmath. - New media type: big labels. They are typeset like labels, but carry both shipping and return addresses. - New commands to control the automatic generation of mailing labels. - New commands to change the media type for mailing labels in the middle of the document. - New PostScript code for selecting the paper trays (thanks to EnvLab users). - Enhancements to the letter environment for typesetting the subject information. - Documentation update. ---------------------------------------------------------------------- What's new in version 1.1 - Bug fixes, including correcting the nasty typos in default options & elold.ins. - New options controlling the printing of return addresses. - \AtBeginLabels now behaves like \AtBeginDocument and \AtBeginDvi: the changes are cumulative. - New hook \AtBeginLabelPage. - New command and options controlling switching the printer to manual feed mode while printing envelopes and labels (thanks to William Slough, Eastern Illinois University). - New command \FirstLabels controlling offsets for the labels.
