On Word, I have our return address logo and a typed sender address set up to
print onto envelopes. All the margins and envelope size are correct, but
after the envelope prints, another sheet of paper prints with the message
"PCL XL error Warning: Illegal Media Source". How do I correct this.

I would guess it means you are trying to draw envelopes from a tray that
contains a different size paper. If you're using a template rather than the
Envelopes and Labels dialog, check the Paper or Paper Source tab of Page
Setup to see what tray is selected.

PCL error is the printer driver (you have an HP LaserJet? If it is the PCL6
driver, try checking with HP for a newer driver: if you already have the
latest or the problem still recurs, revert to the older PCL5 driver.
