Many people think of Word when they have a large-scale mailing project to organize. But are there times when you want to produce just a few envelopes or labels?

In addition to mass mailings, Word can also produce small numbers of labels and envelopes, or a whole sheet of labels with the same information on each label. Find out all about "mail mergeless" envelopes and labels.

To learn more about this course, read the overview in the center of this page or the table of contents in the left column.

Note     This course is not about mail merge; it is about creating a single or just a few envelopes and labels. If you want to know about mail merge see Use mail merge for mass mailings and more.

To completely participate in the practice sessions, you need envelopes and labels and a computer that's connected to a printer.
