Do you need to designate items around your house or office? Do you want to look professional? With a laser printer and some basic software, you can print labels quickly, easily and with professional-looking results. Follow the steps below to learn how to print labels with a laser printer.

Turn on your printer. Some laser printers may require a few moments to warm up.

Decide which label you will be using. Look on the box of labels if you are unsure.

Open your word processing software. The more powerful office applications may make your task simpler, but even the simplest applications have label-printing capability.

Click the "Tools" pull down menu. This is usually found at the top of the screen.

Select "Envelopes and Labels." Make sure you are in the "Labels" tab.

Provide the information you wish to print in the designated area. Choose the type and size of the label and the product number.

Click "Options" to specify custom sizing and margins. Make sure the information is correct.

Select "Full Page of the Same Label" if that is your wish. Choose "Single Label" for just one.

Insert your labels into the manual feed of your printer. Click "Print."


Determine that the labels are inserted in the proper orientation. Use Avery standard labels to simplify the process. Be sure that the entered information is correct before selecting "Print."


Load your labels into the printer before engaging in the printing process.
