Microsoft Word 2007 is a powerful word processor with many of the same design capabilities as desktop publishing software. If you're a business owner or someone who does a lot of mailing, and you have Word 2007, you can create your own custom labels using Word's label templates and an array of design tools. Making your own labels in Word 2007 can save you money and time while allowing you to maximize your business visibility or add a personal touch to your mailing labels.
Things You'll Need
- Word 2007 software
- Label printing paper
Creating the Labels
Open Word and go to the "Start" button. Choose "New" and browse down to the "Labels" category. Open the label templates and select the type of label you want to make. Get acquainted with the process by clicking the "Mailing and Shipping" category.
Choose the mailing label category you want to use. Click the "Business" category to get started. Select a template from this category and double click it. The label opens in Word and is ready for editing.
Enter your name and address information in place of the template text. You can select the text and either hit the "Delete" key or you can select the text and start typing. The template text will disappear. Save your labels under a file name you will recognize (maybe based on the type of label you're making).
Select your text again and use the drop-down font menu on the ribbon interface to change the font of your text until you are satisfied with the way it looks. To insert a picture, go to your "Insert" tab and select the "Picture" icon. Browse to the location on your computer where the image you need is located, click it, and it will appear on your label.
