How do I Print Labels With a Canon MX310?
By Jacqueline Gonzales
As more people begin working from home, home printers need to be able to handle office tasks. Label printing has various uses, including mailings and making name tags. Label printing can seem confusing at times, but a Canon MX310 printer makes the process relatively simple.
Open a word processing program that allows you to print labels, like Microsoft Word, Microsoft Works Word Processing or OpenOffice Writer.
Design the label. Many programs allow you to use a template based on the size of the desired label. This will ensure that labels print correctly. Label printing paper states the label size along the label's edge or on the box so you can choose the correct template.
Place the label printing paper into the Canon MX310 paper tray. Place only as many label sheets as you will need so that you don't accidentally print other documents on the label printing paper.
Select "Print" from the file menu. Check that the printer is set up for the Canon MX310. If not, select the correct printer. Press "OK" to print the labels.
- Most label printing paper is the same size as standard letter-sized paper, 8.5 inches by 11 inches. If the label printing paper is a different size, you must change the paper size in the printer setup. On the printer screen, select "Properties," then "Page Setup" and change the paper size as needed.
- If the label size on the template doesn't match the label printing paper size, the labels will not print correctly. Check the dimensions carefully before printing.
