How to Create One Word 2010 Document of Multiple Envelopes


I don’t know about you, but I really dislike creating an envelope manually, especially when I have more than one. You know, when you need to send out a payment or something that you do not have a letter for where you can just highlight the address and print an envelope.I am lazy and do not want to create those envelopes every quarter, month or whatever, or have dozens of individual envelope files to sort through!

Note: Even if you create a document with several envelopes in it, when you send them to the printer, Word will be stubborn and insist on changing your first envelope when you select Envelopes and Labels from the Tools menu again.

Follow the steps below to get your envelopes printed in the order you wish:

  1. On your Ribbon, display the Mailings tab.
  2. In the Create Group click Envelopes tool.

  6. Repeat the steps above for your next envelope.
  7. Click on the Change Document button.

Repeat the steps above for each additional envelope you would like to create.
