How to Create Address Labels

By Bennett Gavrish

  • Overview

    With the Microsoft Word application, part of the Microsoft Office suite of programs, you can design and print your own address labels. In the word processing program, you simply select what type of label sheets you are printing on and then decide what text or images to add to your custom address labels.
