    Before creating the envelopes I would suggest that you should have proper knowledge about the Mail Merge. Once your concepts are clear then you can use it for creating an envelopes. A mail merge is used to create form letters, mailing labels, envelopes, directories, and mass distributions by email and fax. In the merge process using three documents: the main document, the data source and the merged document. In a mail merge operation in Word, the document containing the text and graphics that are the same for each version of the merged document, for example, the return address or salutation in a form letter.

    Open or create a data source with individual recipient information. A file that contains the information to be merged into a document. For example, the list of names and addresses to use in a mail merge. You must connect to the data source before using the information it contains. Microsoft Word Mail Merge simplifies through a wizard that guides you through all the steps. If you prefer to work outside the wizard, you can use the Mail Merge toolbar. In any case, the end result is that each row (or record) data source generates a form letter, mailing label, envelope, or directory item individually. You can also use mail merge to create any type of document that maps fields to data, not just mailings or directories.
