Click 3 is a click on the picture of the label, and this opens the Label Options dialog box
Click 4 is a click on the New Label Button, and this opens up the Label Details dialog box, and this is where you’ll put in all of the details of the label.
Now you can get measuring and create your own label template.

How to create a label template

M-5352 10 Up Copier Labels

The M-5352 Labels are 10 up (10 labels per sheet) that can be used in all plain toner copiers. These labels are great because they take up almost all of the real estate on the page which offers more space to print, whereas the ML-1000 has small borders on the left and right.
If you’re having trouble creating a template, no need to fret, we’ve created a template specifically for the M-5352.

Viewing Microsoft Word Cell Grid lines -Seeing the Label Update

In our old post we showed how to make Cell Grid Lines visible in Microsoft Word 2007. We’ll need an update to that. It’s pretty much the same, now it just looks different. For Microsoft Word 2010, or Office 365, you’ll find it under the Design tab, then click on Borders, and select “View Gridlines” from the drop down menu.

The cat address labels above are on the ML-3000 address labels.

One Across Pinfed Label Template

If you’ve read our old post ( on how to print the Maco 42-451 one across pinfeed label, you’ll note that the example template was for office 2007, which uses the Avery 4013 template, which is the same layout as the 42-451. If you’ve started using Office 10 or Office 365, you’ll notice that Avery 4013 is gone. But have no fear, there is another Avery number you can use. Use the Avery 4018. It’s the exact same layout as the 4013. The only difference is that the Avery 4018 is a removable label.

Just click OK, and then “New Document”, and you’ve got a new template:

ML-3025 Address Label Template

If you’ve purchased the ML-3025 Address label from us, or even another source, and you’re looking for a template for the ML-3025, look no further. Your search has ended. It’s the same layout as the ML-3000. As a matter of fact, it’s the same product. The only difference is in how the labels are packaged. The ML-3000 address label, which is the same layout as the Avery® 5160, is packaged in boxes of 100 sheets. The ML-3025, on the other hand, is packaged in boxes of 25 sheets.
But since you’ve made it to this page, we’ve made the ML-3025 template available right here:

MS-1624 Template

Here is the MS-1624 label template. As always, beware, these are removable labels, and they might not be compatible with your laser or inkjet printer and may come off inside your printer. They were originally designed for hand application, and that’s how we recommend using them.

M-5360 Address Label Template

With 21 labels per page the M-5360 address label offers a bit more room than the M-5361 30 up label. “30 up” is the term we use in the biz just to say how many labels are on the page. So the M-5360 is 21 up. Conveniently this label has a very similar number to the Avery product: Avery 5360.
If you still cant find a template for this label, and don’t want to take the time to create one, we’ve got the template right here for you.

Remember, the grid lines that show in the above document can be turned off and on when you view the Word document. If you don’t see any grid lines, it doesn’t mean that you don’t have labels, you just need to turn on the grid lines. Check out our blog post on how to do that here: Seeing the Label

MS-2028 Label Template

The MS-2028 label is a removable label that is useful for many things. They’re a little bit larger than many of the other smaller pricetag labels, so if you need to stick a lot more information, like product description on the label, you’ll have the room.

These labels are marketed as non-machinable, or for hand written applications only, but folks have been printing on them. There are some that will have no problem printing this label, but there are some printers for which the labels might become detached, or the color may run slightly onto the fuser unit in some laser printers, so we don’t recommend you use a printer to print on these labels unless you know the labels will not come off in the printer, or the colors will not run. We whipped up a quick template, and you’ll have to adjust the cell margins and such for your application. So if you know your printer can handle these labels, here is template:

Presents for the Holiday Season Shipping Label

Maybe you can put this one on one of our Shipping Labels. Maybe the ML-0600 or the ML-0400 Shipping label.
Here’s a shipping label with a red border and a present. The SENDER ADDRESS and RECIPIENT ADDRESS areas are actually text boxes. You can put your data into those areas, or just delete the boxes and format the table cells the way you like.
