Supply envelopes that work with Quicken wallet checks

Window check envelopes sold by Intuit for "Check 21 wallet" size checks do not align properly with the checks themselves.
The envelopes to which I refer are called "Wallet Check Envelopes" and "Wallet Plus Check Envelopes" and may be found on this web page.
Here are some photos showing how the window envelopes fail to align properly with Quicken checks. Too much of the check is revealed in both cases, and the return address is cut off at the bottom with the Plus size envelope.

    There are a number of posts indicating alignment issues with wallet checks (21 compatible), me included. I searched and found a post with a solution for me. I'm using Quicken 2020 Version R25.21 on Windows 10. In short, open Quicken, go to FILE, then FILE OPERATIONS. Then select VALIDATE and REPAIR. You can select a number of options. The major one for this issue is at the bottom of the form. Check the box for "Reset all Quicken printer settings". Click OK and let the system run. You'll get a report of what the system found and repaired. Now go to FILE and PRINTER SETUP and finally, CHECKS (you should check some reports too since all printer defaults will have been reset). I ran through the check alignment routine and the problem was solved. This has been a real issue for me and I'm surprised no one else has found it.

    The problem is not with printing the checks. The checks print perfectly. The problem is that the envelope windows are incorrectly sized and positioned.

    For another customer, I was just looking at that Intuit website, too. https://intuitmarket.intuit.com/envelopes/check-window
    Of the two envelope styles available for wallet checks, which one are you using? The small one with a tab to hold the check in place inside the envelope? Or the bigger one with an inside pocket to hold the check?

    Discussing this issue only among Community users is not going to get anything changed. And this has been discussed here several times over the years ...
    If the available envelope styles at Intuit don't get the job done and you want window envelopes to get changed by the check printing companies, you need to talk to them and get them to make changes.

    Look again at the OP in this thread. I have tried both size envelopes and neither works. Every few years, I order both sizes to see whether the situation has improved. Every few years, I return my order for refund.
    The "idea" is to get Quicken to find a supplier for envelopes which work.
