You all know I love labeling everything....everything!! If you stand around too long at my house, you might leave with a label on your tuckus.
Avery labels are my favorite and now they come in the best shapes ever. They have the brown paper look in round, oval and square...great for your craft business. Check your local office supply or the Avery website. I have no affiliation with Avery...I just love them. They make business cards too.
These are a few of the ones I use. They're great for...
- address labels...especially for all those Christmas cards coming up!
- return address labels
- gift tags
- organizing labels
Here's a quick tutorial on how to use Microsoft Word to make labels. Mine is 2007 on my computer, so things may be a little different on yours. The process is the same...just the buttons might be in a different place.
When you open up Word, a new page will appear like this. Click on the word MAILINGS...circled in red
Then click the LABELS button.
A window will pop up. Click the word OPTIONS.
Another window will pop up and you will scroll for the corresponding number that matches the number on the label that you have purchased. My address labels are #5160.
When you're done, click the OK button.
Now click the NEW DOCUMENT button.
and the template that matches your labels will appear.
If you want to have your print center in the label, click the LAYOUT button and then click the CENTER button. It doesn't say center...it just has lines centered in the middle for the top and sides. It's circled in this picture on the right.
Now you can go back to the HOME button and play around with fonts and letter size.
just left click and drag to high light when changing a font or font size.
Not sure about your printer, but mine has to have the labels go in upside down in the paper tray. Practice with plain paper before you waste the sheet of labels.
Hope this helps during the upcoming holiday season. You can use these for so many things this time of year.
If you make out your Christmas card list, you can type in all the address labels and save it on your computer and then just print it out each year.
Have a great day,
