How to create and print envelopes from the mailing list in Word?
If you have a client or customerlist, and you need to send an update leaflet to all the clients in the list, in many cases you have to write each customer's name and address on the envelopes for the sending. But if there are numerous customer information existing in the list, the writing work will be a huge project. Now, I introduce a trick for you to create and print envelopes from the list in Word.
