Use Avery Add-On to Create Labels in Google Docs

As Google Docs don’t have a native labels function or template, you will need to use an add-on called – Avery Label Merge.

Here’s the process.

  • First create a spreadsheet document with the names you want to use to describe each column.
  • From Google Docs, create a new Blank Document.
  • From the top toolbar choose Add-on and do a search for “Avery Label” and select the Avery Label Merge app.
  • After you install it, from your blank document, choose the ” Add-on” and choose the Avery Label  Merge add-on.
  • From the menu choose New Merge
  • Select an icon – either Labels or Name Badges – and then choose the Avery label that you have.
  • Then choose the spreadsheet that you previous made.
  • You will then choose which columns you want to show up on each label.
  • After you choose the columns, you can select the label and change the font and it’s properties.
  • Click on the Merge button and you will now have a document with all your labels filled out.

Here’s a good video of the process.
