a simple text output query

How do I output on a single line? For example; if I...echo "dougp">file1...and I...echo "Douglas">file2, when file1 file2>file3... And then file3, the output is on two separate lines.
That is;

How do I get it to display on a single line? Like this;

dougp Douglas or dougp, Douglas

Today is my third day playing with Unix(Linux on my Mac), yet I'm stymied by this simple problem.
