Helpful Hints:

  1. You should always run a test sheet of paper through your printer to ensure it is lining up properly.
  2. Your printer may have default print settings and they may conflict with what you are telling the page setup to do, so don't forget to choose the proper print settings before you start printing  your test page.
  3. Try to stay away from printing a border around the inside of your card, if you want something on the edge. You may want to try a corner border or design in one or two corners.
  4. Our instructions are meant as a guideline and not intended as a plug-and-play type format because we may not have the same version of the software that you have on your PC. You may have to manipulate the information or template to suite your software or printer.

TO DO A MAIL MERGE: 

it is really important to have the address well written in Excel. The way the information is listed in the Excel file is essential, because Word has to read these fields.

The Excel file must be clearly organized in rows and columns with suggestive names: First Name, Last Name, address lines 1, zip code, etc. Failing to organize data from the very beginning is the reason why most customers cannot finalize the mail merge.

The best explanation I found on the web is Mail Merge for Dummies – step 1 to 5. Please see below:
