It's really unfortunate that Ambrosia has abandoned Snow Leopard with this. The widget was always a great tool, this is miles ahead but can't be used on Snow...I'm majorly disappointed with this.

I see it announced today on prmac.com that EasyEnvelopes is now available in the MAS for $9.99. It is listed as version 1.0.0, released on 21 July 2012.

It is now an application, whereas before it was a widget. Actually, prior to OS X, it was a Desk Accessory — and a very good one at that.

As a widget, it has been good, but some of the functionality of the old Desk Accessory didn't seem to be as good.

So far, there is one comment on the MAS that claims that the app is not worth the steep price. Without trying it out, I would tend to agree.

Personally, I'm hoping to hold onto the existing widget that works under 10.7 — and hope that if I upgrade to 10.8 that widget will continue to work properly.

It's sad that Ambrosia feels the need to charge such a steep price for this app — especially since it doesn't seem to offer much, if anything, more than the free widget offers.

I'm with ya, Anthony. Not only that, the widget now has this annoying "Upgrade to Pro" yellow sticky note on it. What in the world...? Ambrosia isn't even calling this "Pro," its version 1.0.0. I'm going to keep using the widget since I maybe use this app 10 times per year. Great little app, but for $1/envelope, I'll go back to hand writing envelopes.

I also agree. Bit of opportunism with a misjudged price.

So many better and more useful Apps sell for less.

Lppk for this to Go on Special real soon.

At that price, for the few envelopes I do each year, I can use Pages, MS Word, or LibreOffice (free) and merge print as well. I agree, $10 is simply too much for this "one trick pony."

I consider this little gem of a widget indispensable. So, I feel a little bad about looking a gift horse in the mouth.

Easy Envelopes doesn't print a Facing Identification Mark or "FIM" on the envelope. If the objective is to help your mail sail through the postal services automation, not having a FIM is glaring omission. They've known about it for a long time and new versions have come out and they still don't do it. Addressix does it, but it's all but defunct at this point.

It's worth mentioning that the barcode Easy Envelopes uses is a POSTNET barcode. As of May, 2011, this barcode format is being deprecated by the US Postal Service in favor of the Intelligent Mail barcode, or "IMB." Since they won't even add a FIM, I'm guessing that IMB is not in Easy Envelope's future. :-(

I hope I am proven wrong on all counts. That would be wonderful.

Please be aware that this change only affects automation price pieces, in which case you wouldn't be using EasyEnvelopes to print your envelopes. Also, FIMs are not used except for Business Reply Mail, so you shouldn't be printing your own FIMs anyway.

So long as you're using EE to pre-print envelopes for proper usage, the output it gives you is as good as you can get; changing to IMb or adding FIMs isn't going to help (the latter one could possibly delay a mailing!)

Paulson replied on 26 Oct 2013
FIM (Facing Information Marks) make no difference, really, because they're intended for Business Reply Mail. Have you ever seen how fast modern mail sorters work? The envelopes fly through these scanners at about 50 miles an hour, so even if needed, lack of a FIM would add about a millisecond for the machine to turn the envelope right side up, or just read the back side. Non-existent problem.

Easy Envelope is advertised as OS 10.6 compatible. However, the print dialog box hangs and requires a log out. I contacted Ambrosia Software and received “We're aware of this issue happening to a few people. At this time there's no workaround or update in the wing” as a reply. If you have a workaround, please post.

Same problem here - I believe it is more widespread than they realize. Pity too because it's because of this free software by Ambrosia, that I ended up buying Snapz Pro and Wiretap Studio. I love the app for the ease of use, but this problem makes it almost not worth the effort.

This was a wonderful app up through Leopard. But now it's broken for a lot of us Snow Leopard users. They acknowledge this on their support page, thus:

http://www.ambrosiasw.com/support/faqs/products/easyenvelopes-widget/Why-is-the-print-dialog-box-stuck-on-my-screen

So forget about a workaround.

I can't blame them for not investing to fix a freebie, but now I've got to search out a replacement, and I'll gladly pay for a good one. (Address Book itself is almost useless for printing envelopes.)

Arrrrrgh!

An outstanding, simple, and intuitive widget for occasional envelope printing that includes fine Mac address book integration. This has become only software I use for non-bulk envelope creation. Version 1.0.8 in a clean installation of MacOS 10.6 works flawlessly for me as well.

Easy Envelopes does a way better job than office envelope wizard, and kills Apple's Address Book, both of which require multiple steps just to print one unique envelope. This software is absolutely fantastic. It is so easy to use, and even prints out USPS barcodes, truly outstanding. I would easily pay $10 for this application.

They finally added something I suggested over a year ago! They have now added the Delivery Point digits after the ZIP+4 into the POSTNET bar code. Yay!

Now that POSTNET is being deprecated, hopefully EasyEnvelopes will include its replacement, "Intelligent Mail Barcode," in a future release.

Tommy-Montag had trouble on 06 Apr 2011
I'm using this on a machine with 10.6.6 as a standalone app built using Mesa Dynamics' Amnesty Singles - one could use another program that converts widgets to desktop apps as well I imagine - and it seems to run ok for me.

I am using the trial version of Amnesty Singles so there is a nag box that pops up. (I don't like eSellerate - the program's third party e-vendor - so I have removed all portions of the eSellerate privacy-invasive framework from the Amnesty Singles app. Otherwise I'd gladly buy a copy but can't find another way to do this. =( )

I can't really explain why I don't get the same errors as outlined below other than the fact that I am using it as a standalone app and not a widget.

Be warned: Easy Envelopes 1.0.7 does NOT work properly in OS X 10.6 Snow Leopard. It can print envelopes but has freezes when minimized as well as with the Print dialog screen.

No word when or if Easy Envelopes will be updated to work with 10.6 by the developers, Ambrosia Software.
