How Do I Make Address Labels on a Mac?

With Microsoft Word installed, Mac users can design and print their own address labels using a special feature included with the word processing application. The Word address label function works with a variety of label sheets and allows you to customise your labels with text and graphics. Once you are finished designing the labels, you can print them through Microsoft Word onto a blank label sheet.

Open the Microsoft Word application by clicking on the icon in the Dock.

Choose to create a new blank document from the list of options.

Go to Tools in the top menu bar and select "Letters and Mailings." From within that menu, choose "Envelopes and Labels."

Click on the "Labels" tab at the top of the pop-up window.

Click on the label sheet icon in the lower-right corner of the window and select the type of label sheets you are printing on.

Enter any desired text and graphics into the main text box of the pop-up window.

Connect your printer to your computer and put a blank sheet of labels into the printer's paper tray.

Click on the "Print" button in the pop-up window to print a sheet of your custom address labels.
