The following steps help you transform names and addresses you’ve saved in Google Contacts into a standard (comma-separated value or .csv) file you may use as a data source for postal service mailings. The steps also cover how to combine two or more sets of exported Google Contacts addresses into a single usable list without duplicates. I recommend you use a desktop-class browser, such as Chrome, since many of the export, import and data cleanup steps benefit from a laptop or desktop sized screen.
