Time Saving Trick for Address Labels

So there are a lot invitations going out right now or at least being prepared to go out soon...and a lot of you aren't paying someone to do it for you. A lot of brides take on invitations to save money or just because they love being crafty. Either you look down your list of address you might think you have a whole weeks worth of work cut out for you just typing all of those address onto labels...then place cards, then thank you cards...ahhh!

Don't stress...I am here to tell you that you can move hundreds of address on to a label template in Word in under 2 minutes! I would suggest going through and proof reading all of them for format and spelling errors but at least you have the hard part out of the way!

The secret is a Mail Merge in Microsoft Word. Depening on what version of Word you have it can be go to your paperclip helper and type in Mail Merge for further directions. It might take you a couple minutes to figure it out but once you will go very quickly! You should have all of your address in Excel or Outlook first and then import them into your mail merge.

Good luck to you all and Happy Merging!
