DL Size is 220mm x 110mm over-printed.

In Pages: File -> Page Setup... -> Paper Size: Envelope DL

Orientation: Middle button -> OK

Actually, it's 210x99mm ;)
If by "overprinted" you mean bleed, then yeah, what you said, though most printers can do with as little as 2mm bleed all around, so 214x103mm

All right - well - if you wanna skip on the bleed:

File -> Page Setup... -> Paper Size: Manage Custom Sizes...

Click the lower left [+] button to create a new untitled page size - > double-click "untitled" and replace it with your own name - ie: My DL.

And in the right side, change the Page Size: Width and Height to 21 cm by 9.90 cm.
Printer Margins left at: User defined - and set all Margins (Top, Left, Bottom, Right) to 0 cm.

Click OK and then click on the Paper Size again and choose: My DL - and click OK again.

Man - you are the living end - aren't ya? It's never just "one" thing, is it?

Next Q will be : Cool - now how do I make all three into origami horses?

9.90 cm x 3 = 29.7 cm - which just happens to be the exact Height of an A4 page.

So... I wouldn't bother with creating a DL Template. I'd just bring up an A4 page and plonk one box in it measuring 21 cm x 9.90 cm.

(You can activate vertical rulers in Pages Preferences... under Ruler Units - third check box down: Enable vertical ruler in word processing documents).

Then create all the elements you want in that DL sized box, and then duplicate it two more times.

cheers,

cw
