3. Create Business Cards and Name Badges

In Word, you configure business cards and name badges the same way you do sheets of sticky labels, so start with a new empty Word document and click Mailings > Start Mail Merge > Labels. In the Label Options dialog box, select the type of printer you're using, the label vendor, and then the product number (which includes labels, business-card stock and name badges). If you cannot find a match anywhere, click New Label and configure the settings for your paper.

Once you've selected the correct paper, click OK; a new table will appear. The table layout will match the layout of your paper stock, but the gridlines won't print. Create your cards, one per cell table, and print them on your paper stock.
