Printable Labels (address-label size)

01.19.10

Hello. How is your week going? Ours has been a nice, slow kind of week. Brent spent the weekend in Idaho doing a film shoot, so I spent the weekend feeding the cow (we’ve had a mouse move into our corn bags, eek!), stoking the fire, and introducing the kids to shrink-ie-dinks. Perfect for the rainy days we’ve had.

I decided recently that I should reorganize my entire wrapping and gift closet. You know, to be ready for a year of birthdays and happy occasions. It’s been a project. I’m hoping to share soon.

As part of my closet makeover, I’m printing sheets of labels for quick and pretty gift wrap. I often print on full sheets of labels (thisis the best deal I’ve found for full-sheet label paper), but when I don’t have time to pull out the paper cutter, I like to have a short cut. I always have something I can print off on address labels.So here for download are two sheets of labels that will fit on a standard, 1 by 2 5/8–inch address label (Avery label template 5160).

On a side note, I’m hoping to find a good place I can donate to the relief efforts in Haiti. I’ve been looking at this list. Does anyone have a charity they recommend?

Love these labels! Thanks so much for sharing. ;)

As for donations, World Vision is a (local) company who has made it their mission to help those in need throughout the world. They are prepared and ready to assist in these types of situations. I would recommend them to anyone and everyone (they’re on that list you linked too as well).

http://www.ldsphilanthropies.org/ is a good one. 100% of your donation goes to humanitarian aid. Not very many non profit organizations can make that claim. Even the Red Cross has a huge overhead.

Love your blog!

cute labels!

I donate to UMCOR (United Methodist Committee on Relief) – because I know 100% of my donation goes to relief work. Admin costs are covered by Methodist Churches.

Donate to Haiti through The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints where 100% will go to the effort. Get a donations slip and under “other” write Haiti. The Church has sent out large amounts of aid already and are even recruiting Doctors to go…I hear at least two have signed up.

Your blog is one I like to read first in the morning–thanks for these labels. I wanted to make some and was going to color them with markers–this is so much better. I”ve used many of your ideas!

I donated to Haiti through LDS charities. Link is above. Ditto the comments about no overhead.

Hey – When I came across this Printable I thought, “Wow wouldn’t it be a nice gift If I used these to make personalized Return Address Labels for my family”… You wouldn’t have any ideas on how to get these into Open Office/Word and then write in the blank spaces?? Or is there an easier way that I just don’t know about.

I’D APPRECIATE ANY IDEAS. :)

Hi Adriane,

Thanks for stopping by! We must think alike. I originally worked on making address-label size labels to make some as a gift for my SIL. But I did it in a page layout software. I know you can insert this as a picture in a Word document, but then the trick would be making sure it’s still sized right and getting a table over the pic. I’m not Word-savvy enough to know if I can do that. But I will think about learning to make an editable pdf. That might be the thing to do.

If you get this working in Word, I’d love to hear!

I stumbled across your blog yesterday – thanks Pinterest! – and fell in LOVE with all your happy mail ideas AND these labels. I put together four “quick” happy mail “packages” to mail out and bought Avery labels to use. Unfortunately, I can’t get these labels to print on them appropriately. I tried for about an hour on my Mac and then I switched to my Dad’s PC thinking it was a platform issue, but after an hour here, I still have nofavorable outcome. =(

I think the issue is that they’re PDFs and unless I shell out $100 for Adobe Acrobat, I can’t edit them to even add a margin to make sure they print on the label. So, next time, please offer an image as well! Because they WON’T import to MS Word as a picture if they’re in PDF form.

I would love to use these for our client choice pantry to mark re-packaged bulk foods for families in need. They are perfect. If you are still looking for a donation outlet. We would love to have you on board as a partner donator for the hungry of Northwest Oklahoma. We are a non-profit offering a store like atmosphere promoting healthy choices. Clients take what they will make and choose what they will use in their own kitchens. Thanks for creating a great template! loavesandfishesnwok.org Linda Executive Director
