Using Word for Mail Merge
You can purchase sheets of labels that
feed easily into both inkjet and laser printers,
making mailing labels easy to produce using
Word’s label function. Labels are especially useful
if you have large quantities of letters to mail, and,
of course, some envelopes are simply too big or
bulky to fit into your printer. You can also use
labels to create hundreds of items such as name
tags, product information, file folder labels, or
return address labels.
3. Click the Tray drop-down menu and select
the printer tray you plan on using for labels.
4. Click the Label Vendors drop-down menu
and select the manufacturer of the labels you
plan on using.
5. Click the label Product Number you want to
use. A description of the selected label
appears on the right side.
6. Click the OK button. You return to the
Envelopes and Labels dialog box.
Similar to when you create an envelope, if you
want Word to pick up the address automatically,
create it in the form of a letter or document before
you begin label creation. Otherwise, start with a
blank document, and then follow these steps:
Choose Full Page of the Same Label. Select
this option even if you want to enter
different information on each label.
8. If you want a full page of the same label,
enter or edit the label information in the
Address section (see Figure 6-7) or click the
Insert Address icon to choose from an
Choose Mailings>Create>Labels. The
Envelopes and Labels dialog box appears
with the Labels tab on top.
2. Click the Options button. The Label Options
dialog box seen in Figure 6-6 appears.
For Individual Labels
If you want to type individual information on
each label, leave the Address box blank.
