Microsoft Word: Make Labels

Sunday, February 26th, 2017 by | Filed Under: MS Office Help, MS Word

A reader wanted to know if I could suggest a good program for making decorative address labels. One of my favorite choices is a familiar one: Microsoft Word. Let’s check out how to make a label. For this demonstration, I’m using Word 2016, but the interface is fairly similar in any version of Office since 2007. To start, open Office and select New.


Then from your choices on the right, select Labels.

You’ll see a page similar to this:

You’ll see options for everything from CD labels to address labels.

To narrow the options, look under Category on the far right.


If you’re using Avery labels, you can click on Avery to make sure you get precisely the right size you need for your label paper.



Click on any of the templates shown…

…and a pop-up will show you which label stock it works with. If you decide you want to use that label, choose Create

Word will then download the template and open it.

You can look for templates that have images you like.


Tomorrow,  I’ll show you how to create custom labels.
