Take this course to learn how to print full pages of labels or a single label, and to use mail merge to create a sheet of address labels from your mailing list for mass mailings.

Create and print labels

In Word 2013, you can create many different kinds of labels that work with almost any type of printer. When you find the label you want, check to see if there’s a template for it in Word. Templates can save a lot of time because all the setup is done for you.

Use mail merge to create multiple labels

If you wanted to create a bunch of recipient address labels, you could type them all manually in an empty label document. But there’s a much better way, and it’s called mail merge. Watch this video to learn more.

More options and custom labels

Address labels are the most popular kind of label, but you can also find special printer paper for making things like business cards, and much more.

Mail merge

Use mail merge to create mass mailings that you individualize for each recipient. You can add individual elements to any part of a label, letter, envelope, or email, from the greeting to the entire document, even images. Word automatically fills in the fields with recipient information and generates all the individual documents. In this course we’ll start with email, then move on to letters and envelopes.

Mail merge

To show how mail merge works, let’s start with an email message. You start with a main document, attach a list of recipient information, and add mail merge fields. Then Word automatically fills in the fields with recipient information and generates all the individual documents.

Print letters with mail merge

So now that you have the basics of mail merge, let’s try some different options, including printing letters. You can find everything you need on the Mailings tab.

Print envelopes with mail merge

You create mail merge envelopes the same as email messages or letters. First, click File and close the current document. Make sure to save it, then go to File, click New and open a blank document. Watch this video to learn more.
