Envelope Addressing List Management for Calligraphers


If you have ever addressed envelopes for client work, you know that centering all the lines is no small feat!

And before we do that, we would need to get the list cleaned up, double-checked, etiquette reviewed, and confirm the zip codes aren’t missing any digits.

But clients normally send a .csv file and what if you aren’t great at spreadsheet manipulation? This course builds your computer skills for envelope addressing. The class teaches you to use Excel, Google Sheets, mail merge in Word, and data merge in InDesign. Then, you pick which one you like best!

This course shows you specifically what we need to do as calligraphers! And then how to use that for centering magic!
