About This Class

At some point most of us have had to either hand write or print a ton of envelopes for Christmas Cards, Weddings, or other fun events. For those of us who are designers we even designed a really cool envelope and then hand typed each address on each page over and over. We might have even got those ugly labels from the local copy shop and stuck them on each envelope.

Most people end up typing out the address information in Microsoft Excel or Apple Numbers for organization, then they copy and paste it onto each page and end up with a huge file and a lot of lost time.

There has to be a better way!!! (Sorry, I've been watching Shark Tank a lot lately...)

There is! Using a cool feature called MailMerge in Adobe InDesign you can easily link your file to one of those Excel or Numbers documents and you're done! Don't worry if you've never even opened InDesign in your life. If you know how to roughly use Photoshop or Illustrator, it will be an easy as we are only using a few easy tools.

Also, if you want to get a little more advanced and make a ton of labels with different names and ingredients and barcodes, I show you how to do that too. You could even use the same principal to mass setup Hockey or Baseball cards with an image and all.

It's way easier than it sounds. Also, there is no project for this class! Just watch it, soak in some information and go about your day. Click enrol already!

Great stuff! Especially the labels merge as I had not seen that before!
Good stuff to know. It would help if the screenshot were a little larger. Even at full screen on a large monitor, I can hardly see what his mouse is doing. He tends to spend a lot of time on the easy stuff and then do the tricky stuff really fast. Also, some of us are on a PC platform and things are set up a little differently, so slower over the important stuff would be better.

Oh boy, these things are always awkward. Should I talk about myself in the third person like an accomplished wordsmith who compliments my every trait? Or should I just keep it real? Do people still say keep it real? Oh uh, I think I already fucked this thing all up. Great, now I even swore. Good thing no one reads these things. Wait, what?

I think you already know this by now, but I am a Graphic Designer and Illustrator. I graduated from a 3-year design college with honours in 2008. So I've been a full time designer since then. See what I did there? I didn't say I've been designing for 'X' amount of years, that way I never have to update this thing. Genius! 

I've been working full time since the day I graduated in a print, design, and sign shop in beautiful Bracebridge, Ontario. It's tagline is "In the Heart of Muskoka". Muskoka was actually rated the number 1 place in the world for a summer vacation by National Geographic. Or something like that. No one said I'd need to fact check in my own bio!

I actually live in Barrie which is about an hour North of Toronto. Bracebridge is about an hour North of Barrie. What is this, a geography lesson? Moving on...

The beauty of being the only designer in a small print shop is it doesn't satisfy my need for creativity. That may sound like a negative, but it forces me to go home with a hunger to create. For this reason I freelance, illustrate, and teach on the side! So you could say I'm fairly busy. At least when I'm not napping. I should probably delete that last sentence. But I've got to wrap this thing up and get back to the grind. So there's no time to delete!

So that's basically that. If you want to get a-hold of me I'm on basically every social media thingamajig @JonBrommet. You can also check out my website at the link below.

Congrats if you made it to the end of this train wreck! Also, see a doctor. You probably have one of those obsessive compulsive disorders where you need to finish things. Like reading a terrible bio.

Seriously though, check out my classes. You'll love them like your mother. Also, I promise not to try and be funny, I just keep it real! Seriously though, do people still say that?
