Mailing Labels

Mailing Labels
Information Services does not offer label printing services. Individual departments and employees may print their own labels using data obtained from the appropriate resource, Microsoft Word & Excel, mail merge, and standard printer label templates. Below is information about where and how to obtain the data and how to do a mail merge. Links at the bottom connect to other related resources. The Information Services Help Desk can assist with the process and provide training on mail merge.
