Default add a message to envelope in mail merge

how do I add MEMBERSHIP CARD to the lower left area of the envelopes I will use in mail merge? I can set up the return address and the mailing address with no problem.

You could simply put the message in a (borderless?) textbox on you primary merge document.

Otherwise, look into the use of the EnvelopeExtra AutoText entries.
This might have been better posted in the mail merge forum.

Presumably you're using a mailmerge for this and have a data field named 'MEMBERSHIP CARD' in your data source. In that case all you need do is to
• insert a new paragraph into the label and format it as right-aligned with sufficient leading space to place it at the bottom of the label; then
• add the mergefield for the 'MEMBERSHIP CARD' field via the 'Insert Mergefield' button on the Ribbon's Mailings Tab.
Update the labels and you'll be right to go.

PS: Thread moved to mailmerge forum.
