Create and print labels

Word can print a single label, a full page of the same label, or a sheet of identical labels. Just type in an address, a file folder, or CD case name, and choose a label setup. If you’re printing onto Avery labels, you can use an Avery template.

If you’re printing different labels on a page, you can set up a new label document and type each label. But if you have an address list or another kind of data source that you can use to make labels with mail merge, that’s much quicker—especially if you want to add a custom graphic.

If you want to make return address labels, find more information in Create return address labels.

  1. Click Mailings > Labels.

    Create group on the Mailings tab

  2. Click Options.

  3. In the Label vendors list, click the company that made your labels, or the company and page size. For example, click Avery US Letter.

  4. Under Product number, click the number that matches the one on your labels package.

    If you don’t see your product number, you can set up a custom label. Scroll down for those instructions.

    Note:  If you’re using a continuous-feed printer, you’ll have a different list of product numbers. Be sure to click Continuous-feed printers under Printer information, so you’ll see that list.

  5. Click OK.

  6. Type an address or other information in the Address box.

    The Envelopes and Labels setup options

    To create a label for an address in an electronic address book installed on your computer, click the Insert Address button.

    The Select Name button on the Mailings tab

  7. To change the formatting, select the text, right click, and then click Font or Paragraph on the shortcut menu. Make your changes and then click OK.

  8. Under Print, click Full page of the same label or click Single label.

    If you’re printing one label, enter its location in the Row and Column boxes. For example, if you have a 3 by 10 grid of labels on your sheet, but only the last label’s left, type 10 in the Row box and 3 in the column box.

  9. Before you print, place your label sheets in the printer.

    To print the labels without saving your setup, click Print.

    To preview, or to save the labels in a document you can use again, click New Document. Save the document, or print the labels by clicking File > Print and clicking the Print button.

If you aren’t using an address list or other data source, you can type each label. But if you want to add a custom graphic to your labels, that’s easier to set up using mail merge.

  1. Click Mailings > Labels.

    Create group on the Mailings tab

  2. In the Envelopes and Labels box, click Options.

  3. In the Label vendors list, click the company that made your labels, or the company and page size. For example, click Avery US Letter.

    If you don’t see your product number, you can set up a custom label. Scroll down for those instructions.

    Note:  If you’re using a continuous-feed printer, you’ll have a different list of product numbers. Be sure to click Continuous-feed printers under Printer information, so you’ll see that list.

  5. Click OK, and then click New Document.

  6. Type the information you want in each label.

  7. Before you print, place your label sheets in the printer. Then click File > Print and click the Print button.

If the list of product numbers doesn’t include the product number on your package of labels, you can set up a custom label. Here’s how:

  1. Carefully measure the labels on the sheet you have (don’t just go by the size the manufacturer gives you). Note the measurements and how many labels fit on a single sheet.

  2. Click Mailings > Labels > Options.

  3. Check that your printer type is correct. If you have a continuous-feed printer, you’ll see a different list of options.

  4. In the Product number list, click a label type similar in size to your labels. Look under Label information to see whether the selected label is close to your label.

  5. Click Details, and compare the label dimensions and the number of labels per sheet or the number of columns on the label form.

  6. Do one of the following:

    • If the dimensions and label layout match those of your labels, use the selected label.

    • If not, go to the next step.

  7. In the Label Options box, click the printer type, and click New Label.

  8. Type a name in the Label name box, enter your label’s height, width, and pitch (which means the label plus the margin), and then click OK.

  9. Click OK again to get back to the Envelopes and Labels box. From here, you can create and print your custom label by following steps 6-9 in the first section of this article, “Set up and print one label or a page of the same label.”

    The product number for my label sheets doesn't match any of the choices in the Label Options dialog box

    You can still print your labels. You just have to do some customizing.

    1. Measure the labels on the sheet that you have, and note the measurements and how many labels fit on a single sheet.

      Note: Measure the labels carefully. The actual label size might be smaller than the size that is indicated by the label manufacturer. For example, a 1-by-2-inch label might actually be 15/16-inch high and 1 15/16-inches wide.

    2. In the Product number list, click a label type similar in size to your labels.

      If you don't see the label type that you want in the Product number list, you may be able to use another of the listed labels, or you can create your own custom-sized labels.

    3. Click Details, and then compare the label dimensions and the number of labels per sheet (for labels printed on laser and ink-jet printers) or the number of columns on the label form (for labels printed on dot-matrix printers).

    4. Do one of the following:

      • If the dimensions and label layout match those of your labels, use the selected label.

      • If the dimensions and layout do not match yours, click Cancel, and continue to step 5.

    5. In the Label Options dialog box, click the printer type (either Continuous-feed printers or Page printers), and then click New Label.

    6. Type a name in the Label name box, select the height, width, margins, and other options for your label, and then click OK.

      The new label appears in the Product number list as Label name - Custom. The label is also placed in the Other/Custom category. The next time you use your custom labels, be sure to select Other/Custom in the Label vendors list.

  10. Under Print, do one of the following:

    1. To print just one label, click Single label. Then in the Row and Column boxes, enter the row number and column number that match the label sheet location of the label that you want to print. Click Print.

    2. To print a whole sheet of labels, under Print, click Full page of the same label, and then do one of the following:

      • To send the labels directly to the printer without previewing them, click Print.

      • To preview the labels so that you can edit them and save them in a reusable document, click New Document.

        Word creates a document that contains the sheet of labels. Word uses a table to lay out the labels. If you don't see lines separating the labels, click the Layout tab under Table Tools, and then in the Table group, click View Gridlines.

        You can make any changes that you want to each label, including changes to the text formatting and color scheme, just as you would with the content of any table in Word. When you finish, save or print the labels the same way that you save or print any document in Word.

If you want to add a graphic to labels that you are printing on a page printer (rather than a continuous-feed printer), you must add it to each label:

  1. Position the cursor where you want to place the graphic.

  2. On the Insert tab, in the Illustrations group, click Picture or Clip Art.

    Word Ribbon Image

  3. Locate the graphic and then double-click it.

  4. If you need to resize the graphic, select it and then drag a corner sizing handle to the size that you want. Dragging a corner handle maintains the height-to-width ratio.

  5. If the graphic does not align with the label text, right-click the graphic and do the following:

    1. Point to Text Wrapping, and then click More Layout Options.

    2. Click the Text Wrapping tab, and under Wrapping style, click Square.

    3. Click the Picture Position tab, and under Horizontal, click Alignment, and then click the alignment that you want: Left, Centered, or Right.

    4. Click OK.

      Tip: If you want to use the same picture for each label, you can adjust the size and placement in the first label, and then copy the picture and paste it into your other labels.
