HELP! Trying to print on an envelope (logo/return address), but when change page/paper size, prints blank page

Before now, I have really only used Acrobat to convert and send uneditable documents (just to give you an idea that I am not used to trying to edit docs or print them out in paper sizes other than 8.5 x 11.  However, I have a document (created by a graphic designer) that was designed to be viewed as a sample, not really to be printed and now want to print it directly on an envelope.  I have created a custom paper size in the Print Setup menu and have also cropped the PDF page size to be similar (although not exact) to the envelope size.  When I try to print it, my printer prints out a blank page.
Any thoughts?

You need to select the paper size in the printer setup that corresponds to the letter size that you are using.  If you just crop to the approximately correct size you may find that the orientation of the page is wrong and various scaling options in the print dialog box can further confuse the issue.
