Default How to make an image non-printing in Publisher

I have some pre-printed stationery and envelopes. I've attached an image of one of the envelopes.

I want to create a template that shows the actual image, so I can create text boxes that flow around the pre-printed images, but won't print the image.

I tried this in Word, but, of course, it is not anywhere close to a desktop publishing program. I tried it in Publisher, but I cannot figure out a way to make the image non-printing.

I can make any object non-printing in Visio, but, again, it is not a desktop publishing application. It has no capability for flowing text around an object.

Can anyone tell me how to do this in Publisher (2007)?

If this is not possible, which is what I think is the case, can someone recommend a real desktop publishing program that can do this? I'd prefer to keep the cost to around $50, but would be willing to spend more for a really great program. By "really great", I mostly mean easy to use. I won't be publishing any books or brochures. I mostly need it for Christmas letters to the grandkids.


PS: I'm new here. Please let me know if this is not the right place to post this.
