Creating Envelopes and Labels
Printing individual envelopes and labels from Microsoft Word is easy. You can enter the delivery and return addresses or, if you use Microsoft Outlook, select them from your Outlook address book.
Some things to be aware of when creating envelopes and labels:
- You need to have a document open in order to create an envelope or label.
- If your document has the delivery address in it (e.g., a letter), Word will automatically insert that into the envelope or label. You can also select the address, then click Envelopes or Labels.
- You can specify a standard return address in the Word options Advanced settings. Scroll to the bottom of the settings and enter a Mailing address in the General group.
