How to Print Labels from Google Sheets?
Let’s consider that we have a dataset whose name, address and other information is stored in the Google Sheet. Make sure you are marking row 1 as headers.
Now follow the steps listed below to create labels and print the same.
- Step 1: Click on Add-Ons and select “Create & print labels“.
- Step 2: Select “Create Labels” from the drop-down menu.
- Step 3: Select a display template from the “Label template” section. This field may already be set, but it must be for the add-on to function.
- Step 4: Select a template from the drop-down option under “Select a template from the list below.”
- Step 5: To get a list of the most regularly used labels, select the “Most popular templates” option. Avery’s most popular template.
- Step 6: A few layouts for address, shipping, and insertable divider labels appear in the “Most popular templates” category. Choose the first “US Letter” choice from the drop-down menu.
It is “Avery US Letter – 5176 Easy Peel® Address Labels” in the context of the instruction.
- Step 7: To continue, click “Use.”
- Step 8: Choose the spreadsheet you wish to use for the labels in the “Mailing list” section. Here we are using the “Labels” workbook and the “data” spreadsheet.
- Step 9: Then, in the space under “Content,” format the label to your choice. It works by wrapping the “ >>” wrapper around the column header. As a result, the “Name” column is indicated by “Name>>.”
- Step 10: By choosing “+ Add a merge field” and selecting “Zip Code” from the drop-down menu, you can add “Zip Code” to the content section.
- Step 11: Enter “City,” “State,” and “Zip Code” on the same line to properly format the label. After “City,” add a comma and a single space to separate the bottom row data.
- Step 12: To create labels in a Google Docs document, click “Create labels.”
- Step 13: To see the labels right away, click “Open document” to open the newly produced Google Docs file.
- Step 14: The label document will open in Google Docs as a result of this action.
- Step 15: By selecting “File” and “Print,” you can now view and print the address labels in Google Docs just like any other document.
- Step 16: Then, to finish the process, follow the interface particular to your device and printer. To print the labels, just use the keyboard shortcut “Cntrl+P” or just click on the Print icon in the toolbar.
- Step 17: Preview the document and click on “Next“.
