Easily create CD labels on your Mac

Creating CD labels is no longer a task just for music companies and graphic designers. With more people storing back-up data files, customized music play lists, and important work documents and projects on CD, creating CD labels to effectively keep track of all of your discs has become a necessity. By using a standard Avery CD label, it is quick and easy to create your own personalized CD label through the familiar interface of Microsoft Word. Here is a step-by-step guide on how you can create CD labels on a Mac.

Open Microsoft Word. Go to "Tools" and the main navigational menu. Select "Labels."

In the pop-up window, go to the "Label" section and click "Options."

In the drop-down menu for "Label products", select "Avery Standard." Scroll down the "Product Number" section. Select "5824 -- CD label". Click "OK." Click "OK" again to close the "Labels" options window.

Your document should now show the grid lines for two CD labels. Type the text you want to use on your CD labels. You can insert an image by going to "Insert" and selecting "Picture".

Prepare your Avery 5824 CD labels in your printer. In Microsoft Word, go to "File" and then click "Print" to print out your CD labels.
