Word - Mailing labels
When you send information to many recipients, it is often more convenient and cost efficient to use mailing labels rather than envelopes. Word uses your data source to create the labels for you.
To define the labels:
1.On the ribbon Go to Mail, click Start Mail Merge and select Labels:
2.In the Labels Options dialog, select the type of printer, the labels vendor (in our case: APLI) and the Product number for a particular label from this supplier (a description the specified size is given to the right).
If you can not find your reference label in the list, click New Label and create a custom one.
3.The empty labels appear in the Word document. If you do not see the grid, go to Table Tools > Layout tab, Table group and click View Gridlines.
4.On the ribbon select Mailings, click Select Recipients and make your selection.
5.You can create or use an existing list, set the desired options. Click on Insert Merge Field and fill the first label with the required information. Do not forget to click the Match Fields.
6.Now click on the Update labels button
7.Click on Preview results and then on Finish & Merge > Edit Individual Documents. Check your labels before printing.
