Whether you own your own home business; mail out monthly newsletters; sell on eBay; or simply like the idea of having mailing labels at your disposal, there are a number of ways in which you can obtain free ones either online, or by making your own.

The National Foundation for Cancer Research offers free ones. All you need to do is go to their site; type in your name and address, and register. Yours will be sent to you free of charge. Keep in mind, however, a donation to them would be appropriate since their site offers a great deal of information on healthy living and research that is currently on-going.

Another way for you to obtain them is to make your own. Simply go to your local office supply store and by a box of labels. As they come in many sizes, choose the one that is appropriate for you. Once you have these you can use your Microsoft Word software to create them; add the sheets to your printer, and Voila! You‘ll have as many as you need. This certainly comes in handy if you have newsletters to mail out on a monthly basis. All you need to do is enter all of the names and addresses into the database; load your blanks, and you can print a set at your leisure.

If you would like an all-in-one service, wherein your can print out labels and postage, your best bet is to use Stamps.com. With this company, you can customize yours for your home business, or simply use them for any of your mailing needs. There is a monthly fee, of course, and it is worth the time and affords you the opportunity to print the correct postage every time, and allows you to print addresses from Microsoft Word for bulk as well.

Having these saves valuable time, especially when sending out bulk mail. Not only that, it also alleviates you from having to address envelopes by hand. So too, making return labels can be just as efficient. Just utilize a smaller one for the return address, and a large label for your customer base. It is an efficient way to express your business prowess. Customers appreciate receiving mail that is neat; readable; and shows just how distinct your business is.

The next time you have a massive mailing, before you sit down with pen in hand, stop and take a trip to your office supply store; purchase a box of mailing labels; and set up your printer. You can be assured it is easy, fast, and shows a level of professionalism which can garner you much praise and satisfaction.
