Name badges can be useful for many occasions, such as business meetings and parties. Make name badges for your guests before your next event. Make your own name badges at home using Microsoft Word and Avery name badges so that your tags will look professional.
- Skill level:
Open a blank document in Microsoft Word.
Click on "Tools" in the toolbar at the top of the screen. Then select "Letters and Mailings." Click on "Envelopes and Labels" in the dialogue box that opens and then select "Options."
Click on the drop down box and make sure that "Avery Standard" is in the window next to "Label Products."
Look at the upper right hand corner of your package of badges to determine which type of Avery name badge you have. The four-digit number on the package identifies your badges and will match a number in the drop-down menu. Choose that four-digit number from the drop-down menu of options and click "OK."
Click "New Document" to bring up a template that shows all of your badges displayed on a single sheet. Type one name into the blank space on each badge. Use the "Tab" key to move from one badge to the next.
Place the Avery badge sheets into your printer and click "Print." Depending on your printer, you may have to insert the sheets badge-side down; they will wind through the printer path and come out printed badge-side up.
Tips and warnings
- Click "Single Label" instead of "New Document" if you only have one or two badges to print. Then type your badge information into the window just above the "Single Label" button, put your Avery badge sheet in your printer and click "Print."
