mailing label software
« on: August 22, 2008, 10:42:24 AM »
I have a very frustrated NEW school secretary that is trying to get the hang of using Works to do this.  Seems like it is very time consuming to pull up a previous file, make a few changes and get it to work.

We do have Office 2003 installed as well but am looking for an easy to use label program for mailings.  Preferrably free but at this point would be willing to spend some money on it.

What do you guys and gals recommend??

Easiest by far is MyMailList by Avanquest.

MyMailList & AddressBook mailing list and label design software is perfect for mail list management. Organize your contact information and print personalized labels. Import data from popular database software or enter new information easily. Print out custom labels, postcards and envelopes with logos and graphics. Send personalized emails to specific contacts or your entire email list with one click.

It lists for $29. Staples, OfficeMax and just about everybody carries it at a discount. Download a trial copy and see if your secretary is comfortable using it.

My Mother was a school secretary and is 82 years old. When she wanted to organize some of her mailing lists, this is what I got her. She loves it. You may draw what conclusions you will from that. ;)

Note: if you are running Vista - see the note on the website:

I just downloaded the trial version and it looks impressive so far.  Thanks for the tip!

This is 90% off-topic, but I love my little Dymo label printer:
