I recently finished an envelope exchange with my Fearless Flourishing online students and decided to update my Envelope Addressing Templates!
I created my own templates a couple years ago when I was trying to figure out the right x-height to address envelopes. After some tweaking and experimenting, I settled into using the 5mm x-height for most of my envelopes. However, for smaller envelopes (ex: RSVP ones), I do recommend going smaller with the 4mm x-height so that you don't run out of space.
These templates include clearly marked x-heights, 55 degree slant lines, centered line, and the baseline is spaced apart justttt right for you to add in some flourishes without the letters looking cramped. I use them for both Copperplate/Spencerian script as their slant lines are really similar (Spencerian is usually written in 52 degree slant).
HOW TO USE THEM
You can use these templates for both light and dark envelopes. I like to print them out on cardstock white paper so that it's more sturdier and I can reuse them again. You simply place your envelope on top of the template and use the center line as your reference point to keep your lines centered. If you are aligning every line to the left, you may want to draw in more vertical lines that's more personalized to your needs.
Here is a quick process of how I address light and dark envelopes...
