How to Make Labels in Word

You can create a sheet of labels that contains the same information. For example, return address labels or a single label on a sheet.

Create a Label

  1. Click the Mailings tab.
  2. Click the Labels button.
  3. Enter an address.

    If you want to print only one label, select Single label in the Print box and specify the row and column where the label is located on the sheet.

  4. Click Options.

    The Label Options dialog box opens. Here, set the type of label sheet you’re printing on.

    For example, if you have a sheet of 30 labels, select one of the 30 Per Page options that matches your label dimensions.

    Your labels package should tell you the type of label being used.

    Print Labels

  5. Select your label options.
  6. Click OK.
    Print Labels
  7. Click Print to print the labels, or New Document if you want to do any formatting or editing of individual labels.
    Print Labels

The labels are automatically sent to the printer or open in a new document, depending on your action.

If you want to create labels from a data source so that you can create labels for a list of contacts, you can use the Mail Merge wizard to quickly generate labels.
