Cd Labels

By john.cb1 ·
I have cd labels to put onto cds. In the package this is a page that shows me the measurements.
This can be used for various things for example for the margins, for top bottom etc.

How can i use this information in Word (Office 2003) so that i can them print my labels correctly and straight.

I would be grateful if you would give me a detailed description as i am a learner in Office Word

Ok, this is a bit tedious. The good news is you only have to do it once. :-)
in word, go to the tools menu then letters and mailings and finally to envelopes and labels. click the labels tab and then click on the new label button. You can then enter in the dimensions that your label manufacturer provided.
Always print on plain paper first and check the registration against a sheet of labels. (put one over the other and hold it up to a light) You will have to adjust the manufacturers numbers to get the proper registration from your printer. repeat adjusting the registration until it is where you want it.

sorry

forget the labels on anything you want to save for any length of time. The glue is a known data corrupter. A Sharpie is the only good labeller for archived data at this point.

Dryflies' advice is good if your must use Word.

You will need a "stomper" to apply lables on CDs. Most stompers come with a starter pack of labels and label creation software. The label creation software is fairly easy to use and includes printer calibration assistance.

I've found that laser printers are fairly simple to setup but injet printers may take some trial and error. Also inkjets may tend to "wander" even after adjustment.

Epson has inexpensive inkjet printers that print directly on printable CDs. I have one and it has been well worth the investment.
