One advantage of using standard labels in Word is that it includes label definitions for myriad different label types. You can select the type of label you would like to use, by number, from the Label Options dialog box.
However, you may find that at times you need to create your own label. For Example, perhaps you have a custom label you use for your company’s purposes, or a label you may want to use is brand new and there is no definition for it in Word yet. Surely you don’t want to wait if it can be avoided! So, if you ever have this problem, Word will allow you complete control over setting up custom labels.
Follow the steps below to learn how:
- Click the Mailings tab on your Ribbon.
- In the Create group, click Labels to display the dialog box with the Labels tab selected.
- Click once on the label in the lower-right corner of the dialog box, or click on the Options button to display the Label Options dialog box.
- Click on New Label to display the Label Details dialog box.
- Use the controls there to specify the exact dimensions of your label.
- Use the Label Name field to create a name for your custom label.
- Click OK and the Label Details dialog box will disappear.
- The name of your new label will now appear in the Product Number list, near the top of the list.
You can now set up and print your labels as desired.
