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 NumbersĀ 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!

Thanks for this info. I usually use Microsoft Publisher Mail Merge (the Same process of designing in illustrator, save a png and then add to document in publisher.) Didn't realize I could do it in Indesign. Thanks a lot :-)
Great stuff! Especially the labels merge as I had not seen that before!
