We'll begin by reviewing some of the basics when it comes to preparing, creating and printing an envelope or a label. Then, we'll explore the improved efficiency you can experience by using the various types of recipient lists available to you in Word 2007.

Then, we'll explore the biggest time saver of all, electronic postage. No more driving to the nearest post office to buy the right postage for your envelopes or packages. Just print off your postage directly on the envelope or to a shipping label and drop them in the mail box. So if you're ready to dive into envelopes and labels in Word 2007, let's get started.
