How to Make Address Labels in Word 2007

By Marissa Willman

Microsoft Word 2007 is a word processing program used to create a variety of text-based documents. In addition to creating letters, Word can create brochures, flyers and business cards. Word also contains a tool to create mailing labels of various sizes. You can choose from hundreds of label templates to ensure the labels are the correct size needed. To create address labels, you can use Word’s “Labels” features in the “Mailings” menu.

Step 1

Open the Microsoft Word 2007 program on your computer. By default, the program will open a new blank document. Click on the “Mailings” tab at the top of the Word window. Select the “Labels” button on the left-hand side of the toolbar.

Step 2

Type the recipient’s address into the blank “Address” field. Choose your label size by clicking within the “Label” section of the window and selecting your label’s manufacturer from the drop-down menu. Locate the product number on the label packaging and select the number from the drop-down menu.

Step 3

Select how many labels you would like to print by choosing the appropriate option under the “Print” section. You can choose to print an entire page of identical labels, or you can print a single label and specify its location on the sheet. If you want to edit the font size, type or justification, click “New Document.” This will allow you to edit the label in a full-page document. You can also add additional addresses into the document.

Step 4

Insert a blank label sheet into your printer. Click the “Print” option in Microsoft Word to print your labels.
