Tips for Avery Templates in Microsoft Word

If you have Word 2007 or a newer version, follow the instructions below to find Avery templates built in to Microsoft® Word.
Note: Older versions of Word are slightly different.

  1. With your Word document open, go to the top of screen and click Mailings > Labels > Options. (In older versions of Word, the Options setting is located in Tools at the top of the page.)
  2. Select Avery US Letter from the drop-down menu next to Label Vendors. Then scroll to find your Avery product number and click OK.
  3. If you want all your labels to have the same information, type it into the address box and click New Document. If you want different information on each label, click New Document and then proceed to fill in your labels.
  4. If your template looks like a blank page, select Layout > View Gridlines to see the template layout.
  5. If your product number isn't built in to your software, you can download the template instead.
  • Find your saved Microsoft Word file on your computer. Double-click the file to open it in Microsoft Word.
  • Open Microsoft Word and browse your computer for the saved document.

Double-click the Avery Word Template file you downloaded and saved to your copmuter. If the template looks like a blank page, select Table Tools > Layout > Show Gridlines to view the template layout.

Once the file is open, type your information into the template. Highlight the text you entered and use the tools in Microsoft Word to format the text.

Click the Insert tab in the Ribbon Toolbar to insert your own image, clip art, shapes and more.

Select your image in the template and click the Page Layout tab in the Ribbon Toolbar. Then click Text Wrapping and select In Front of Text in the drop down list.

How to create a sheet of all the same labels:

  • Blank Templates
    1. Insert your information on the 1st label.
    2. Highlight all the content in the first label, right-click and select Copy
    3. Position the cursor in the next label, right-click and select Paste.
    4. Continue with Step 3 until all labels are filled with your information.
  • Pre-Designed Templates:
    1. Use the Microsoft Word's Find and Replace formatting tool to replace all the pre-designed template text in each label with your own information.

After you select your product, template and a pre-design, the Options for Entering Information screen appears. Check the box for using an existing data file or creating a new one.

Note: If you don't have a spreadsheet with all of your names and addresses, you can start with our pre-formatted files for Microsoft Excel or other database programs.

After uploading the data, you can choose which rows of data you want to use by adding the specific fields to your layout. You can also add punctuation and spaces, and edit your graphics in this phase. Click Next.

Your project is now complete. Choose which direction you want to print your labels or cards and Click Finish. Your project is now ready to print.

At any point you can click the Back button to return to the previous screen.
