I’m having some issues in Word I hope someone can help with.
I’d like to print my envelopes for my save the dates. I went into Envelope/Labels and using the options made a 6×6 (well, 6.25 x 6 since it wouldn’t do less than that) and positioned my address perfectly.
Since the goal is to be able to print several at once without typing each address in right as I print it, I added that to a document so I could copy and paste as many pages as I’d need (I plan on doing about 12 in each one so I can take breaks).
What I can’t figure out is how a full sheet page shows beneath it, and the ‘envelope’ I’m writing on is Page 0 and only shows sections.
How can I get a running document of just ‘envelopes’ that I can pick and choose what to print from like any other word document?
Any help is super, duper appreciated!!!

Did you do it through a mail merge? That’s what I would do.

I had the same problem. I ended up just typing in each address right as I printed it. It was a pain in the butt, but it worked.

Go under mailings. Then select start mail merge. Then you pick envelopes. Then go to where it says finish and merge and select individual documents. Then you should get a whole file full of blank envelopes.

Thanks ladies – if I do it through mail merge – do I have to actually merge in a spreadsheet? All my info is in a Google doc and not in Word.
I can’t seem to get there without it needing more info.

@thewheelsonthebus: you can type it or cut and paste. I don’t know about it from google docs.

You should also be able to make multiple envelopes by hitting ctrl+enter (adding a page break) with the cursor before the section break. Mail merge would save you lots of retyping, but if you’re not comfortable with it, that is an option. Also, you can copy and paste from google docs to excel to make a marge file, that’s what I did (but I hate retyping).
