As the world continues to become paperless, we find it hand-writing hard and harder with every day that goes by. However, one place that I still have to spend a lot of energy on is when I have to write labels manually either for inventory, shipping or to write down an address on a letter.
We recently decided to purchase a label printer only to find out the quality it was using was less than promising. Investing on a new label printer. Luckily, there are many productivity applications now available on mobile and laptop that make printing a whole lot easier.
However, it is still not as original as we wanted it to be. So, we came across the update that Google Docs has recently launched. Now, it allows you to print labels with efficacy and great convenience. If you’re new to this and don’t know how to print labels in Google Docs, follow our lead.
How to Print labels in Google Docs?
Google documents has always been a fan of add-ons. These third party plugins allow Google Docs to handle more work and expand its horizons of productivity. You can think of it as a Google Playstore that has various productive applications you can use to enhance your overall browsing experience.
The first thing you need to do to print labels in Google Docs is to install the Avery Label Merge add-on in your browser. To do this, create a new document in Google docs and look at the top right corner. You will find a button labeled “Add-ons”. Click and from the drop down menu, click on “Get Add-ons” and it will open another window.
Now from this menu, click the search bar and enter “Avery Label Merge” and enter. Once you find the add-on, install it by clicking on to the “Installation” button.
Now open a new spreadsheet by using the Google Docs and put all the information about the label you want to create over here. You can use the first row of the spreadsheet for adding labels to the columns. For an instance, if you’re creating an address label, add the corresponding information in front of the labels you have created. Just keep in mind that each row you create a is a new label so when you’re adding information, create a new row for every new label.
Now go back to your previous document and click on the Avery Label Mergy tab. It will present you with a new menu and you will have to choose the spreadsheet you want to print the label on. There will be different options for you to choose from either an address label or an inventory label. Once you have chosen the format, choose the spreadsheet you want Avery to pull the data from and voila!
It will take less than 5 minutes for the Avery Label Merge to present you with the data and you’re good to go.
