    I guess I am not sure what you are looking for. You want free labels to print at home, you can do that through Word. Are you looking for something special?

    Try PMing Heather. She knows all about that stuff. I know you can also buy labels at the store and print them off on your computer through Word or maybe your printer. Good luck.

    Create custom mailing labels USING MICROSOFT WORD:

    If the type of label you want to use is not listed in the Product number box (Label Options dialog box), you may be able to use one of the listed labels, or you can create your own custom labels.
    1. On the Tools menu, point to Letters and Mailings, and then click Envelopes and Labels.
    2. Click the Labels tab.
    3. Click Options.
    4. In the Product number box, click a label type similar in size to your labels.
    5. Click Details, and then compare the label dimensions and the number of labels per sheet (for labels printed on laser and ink jet printers) or the number of columns on the label form (for labels printed on dot-matrix printers).
    6. Do one of the following:
    o If the dimensions and label layout match those of your labels, use the selected label.
    o If the dimensions and layout do not match yours, click Cancel, and continue on to step 7.
    7. In the Label Options dialog box, check the printer type, and then click New Label.
    8. Add graphics You can add graphics to labels as you would to any document. Just be sure to place them where they won't obstruct the address or otherwise interfere with the mail processing. Go to insert, Picture and selct location of Picture.
    Then type a name in the Label name box, fill in the information for your custom label, and then click OK.

    The new label appears in the Product number box as Label name - Custom. The label is also placed in the Other/Custom category, so the next time you use these labels, be sure to select Other/Custom in the Label products box.

    Note Measure the labels carefully. The actual label size might be smaller than the size indicated by the label manufacturer. For example, a 1-by-2-inch label might actually be 15/16-inch high and 1-15/16-inches wide

    Any problems, email Heather!

    Thanks you guys!

    I make mine using PrintShop. I buy the labels for like $4 for 300.

    I make new ones for every holiday, and I use them for my candy/cake business, and I use them to make little lables for Brian's books, etc. Hours of fun!

    Hi Shygirl, are you referring to the address labels?

    If you want more free ones than you could ever use, all you have to do is make ONE little contribution to a charity through the mail.

    I sent 10 bucks in response to a plea letter a while back. I can't even remember which group it was...March of Dimes, Easter Seals, ..who knows. Now I'm on everyone's plea for money list, and everyone sends return address labels with their letter.

    I get another envelope full of them at least once a week, sometimes two in one day.

    I have labels for every season, every holiday, (from the USO, some cancer research org., March of Dimes, Easter Seals, and more....)

    Labels with puppies and kittens on them (from some humane society),

    Labels with space shuttle and astronauts (some space science org.)

    labels with roses (cystic fibrosos org.)

    labels with flags, eagles and the White House (Am. Vets.)

    Please make them stop!!! I can't write fast enough to use them up, and I don't have that many bills each month. I feel strangely guilty throwing them out.

    I need a "people who discard unsolicited address labels" support group.
    Pssst... anyone that got a Christmas card from me knows I made my own address labels with my avatar on them! See, how much fun is that?

    I bought some Avery labels and got a freebie CD in it that works for all kinds of labels etc. that they make, it was a fun surprise. <geez I sound like a big nerd!>

    I've also used word...and the freebies from the Paralyzed Veterans Assoc.

    The post office in their infinite wisdom is planning on changing my address again for the fourth time. We have lived in the same exact location through all these changes. So I want to thank everyone for giving me these hints, very helpful. Oh, BTW, their reason for changing........so the emergency services can find us quicker if needed. I guess changing the address frequently is gonna make us easier to find?

    You can also download the Avery label (template) Wizard from the Avery Dennison website (it also works with the office supply stores "compare to Avery" cheap lables)
