Label template - none standard sizes

Likes # 0

Can someone suggest where I can find a label template for A4 pages containing 32 labels of 45mm x 34mm and also 84 labels of 46mm x 10mm? I don't think that either has an Avery code, nor appears to be on the Avery site.

I have tried AAD032 and AAD084 from http://www.aalabels.com/Products-of-T148-.html. But they have black lines around each label which I cannot remove. (see Previous post).

I use M/s word 2007 and Vista.

Any help appreciated.

Suggest that you create your own.

In Word 2007 - Mailings tab - Labels - then select options - then new label. Get a ruler and measure your labels and then input the dimensions. Give it a relevant name and do a trial print.

The closest I can come up with is GLD032 and GLD084 from Green Labels Click Here

Looks as if it has had a name change since I last bought from them, it is now Toners Express but the link I sent still works.

Yes, Woolwell, i think I'll have to. Thanks for starting me off.

chub_tor, I don't think that this page has templates - or have I missed something?

I'll close this thread as I am away for a few days, but feel free to add comments, if you wish.

Previous thread http://www.pcadvisor.co.uk/forums/1/tech-helproom/4170606/label-template--hw-do-i-remove-black-lines/

No wonder suggestions in this thread and your others have not worked.

The 'templates' you got AAD032 has not been made as a table. It is an ordinary Word.doc and has been made using 'Format', 'text boxes' with a rounded rectangle edge, fill colour white, and have a line around them.

The first thing to do is to make copy of the AAD032.doc and keep the original safe, always work with the copy you have made.

To remove the lines you will have to do them individually by clicking inside one then: On the Ribbon, 'Format' tab, 'Text Box Styles' section, 'Shape Outline', and choose 'No Outline'

I suggest you do all your typing in boxes before you remove the lines as you will not be able to see clearly where each text box is after the lines have gone.

Tip: On a plain A4 sheet do a test print of boxes with the lines round them and hold it up against the sheet of labels to make sure your text will fall inside the actual label sheet.

(Note the difference between a label template made using a table and a word doc using Text boxes)

My apologies, I thought that you were looking for labels and not templates, must read more carefully in future.

Success, Lotvic! It worked. To select multiple boxes, one has to press ctl and select each box border seperately.

As you say, type in the label first, then remove, as the outline is not shown as it is in the Avery templates. Using the HOME>show paragraph marks option they show up.

Problem solved. Many thanks.

Glad that worked okay, it was certainly a puzzle, and thanks for the extra tips on selecting etc :)

Avery templates are made using Table and the lines you see in those are 'gridlines' and do not print out. (to print lines round each cell you have to put borders round as per my response in other thread)
