If you’ve got a minute, take a sneak peek at just some of the things it can help you do:

Quick tip #1: Design your holiday address labels

Once your holiday cards are tucked into envelopes, addressing them is a snap. With Avery Easy Peel® Address Labels and the free Avery Wizard Software for Microsoft® Office Holiday Edition, it’s easy to create custom address labels with a holiday touch. Find out how with these easy step-by-step guides:

Quick tip #2: Create address labels for your entire mailing list at once

Instead of typing in your family and friends’ addresses one label at a time, let the mail merge feature on the Avery Wizard Software help you. Just start with a spreadsheet of your mailing list. If you don't have a spreadsheet with all of your names and addresses, you can start with our pre-formatted files for Microsoft® Excel or other database programs. All you need to do is create your list one time, and then update it whenever there’s a change. Try this easy step-by-step to turn your mailing list into labels:
