Create New Custom Labels In Word 2016

Did you know you can create your own custom labels in Word?  You can, and it’s not too difficult. For this example, I’m using Word 2016, but the process is pretty similar in most versions of Word since 2007.  First, you’ll need to create a new blank document. Open Word and choose New. Then click on Blank document.

Then select Mailings at the top.

To the far left, under the Create heading, choose Labels.

You can create a whole page of the same label or one single label.

Click on Options.

Select the type of labels you’ll be printing to.

For this example, I will choose Avery and one of their label options.  If you aren’t sure of the product number for your labels, you should be able to find it on the package.

Type the address in the address box.

Now, click on New Document.

A page of labels will open.

Tomorrow, I’ll show you how to customize the fonts and add color and graphics to your labels.

    Great tip, but unless you need something really special, way too much trouble. By the time you add up the labor, the stock, and the wear and tear and toner for the printer, it’s cheaper just to buy them. Also, many people get lots of freebies, fine for most of the ordinary mail. I run address labels for my holiday cards on clear stock in a fancy script font, but that’s it for me.

    Tip from me: Do not use an inkjet printer. Most of the inks will run if wet. Many mail depositories really are not completely water-tight. I had several items returned to me when I printed addressee labels with inkjet and they ran. Use laser or buy them!

    Nice thought but this software does not allow you to print a page of DIFFERENT names, like for Christmas card labels or a party invitation list. Have done this for years until this version came out. Is there an easy way to do this that I missed?
