Check out our how to guide for Microsoft® Word Label templates.
Every product page has a download link where you can access the Templates for all our products.
These are located on each of the individual product pages just under the green download PDF button.
All our Microsoft® Word label Templates are compatible with all word versions including 2007, 2010, 2016 and Office 365.
If the label template grid is not visible upon opening the document, activate the show grid lines under Table tools-layout-view grid lines.
Using Microsoft® Word files
Microsoft Word ®Templates are more suited to text applications such as address labels, shipping labels or product labels.
They can be very limiting when using images,it can be done but there will be some learning and tweaking involved.
You can insert jpegs or other files to print labels into the Template which is essentially a table.
When circle templates are opened, you will not see a circle, it will be a square. You will need to centre your text or image and ensure all the corners are left clear.
To produce landscape labels, you will need to alter the text direction which is in the layout tab and use the text and positioning direction tools, as highlighted below.
Using PDF files
PDF templates are best suited to design software such as Adobe InDesign and Illustrator.
Utilising layers in these programs will help with positioning.
Adobe InDesign – place template on a separate layer to guide where to place the artwork.
Adobe Illustrator – open file in Illustrator and create artwork on a new layer.
If you want to create labels with bleed you will need to make your print material at least .5mm larger than the outside shape, then save as a PDF for the print to fit the actual label.
When printing, ensure no scaling or page fitting is selected.
