Full Answer

Word processing software programs, such as Microsoft Word, commonly provide templates to create text that is formatted for address or envelope labels. Select this option before typing any information into the program.

Once the program has been formatted, it is time to enter the information that is to appear on the label. This includes the user's name, address, email address and/or telephone number. The label can also be personalized with a picture, symbol or emblem. Use the Insert function and select the desired type of picture, clip art or object shape.

Alternatively, fancy text can be used for personalization. In this case, insert a text box instead of a picture or clip art. Once the text box is in place, type in the desired text and adjust the font type, size, color and decorations as desired.

Highlight the completed label and select the Copy option. Then, highlight the empty address labels and paste the copied text to fill in the empty labels. Print the filled in labels on printable label paper. Address label paper typically comes in standard paper size of 8.5 inches wide by 11 inches in length. This size fits up to three address labels on a single row.
