Open a document in Google Docs

2. Open Labelmaker

Then, go to the "Extensions" menu (previously named "Add-ons") and select "Create & Print Labels". If you haven’t installed the Labekmaker add-on yet, you can install Labelmaker from the Google Workspace Marketplace. When the installation is finished, you might need to reload your document by closing it and reopening it and the add-on will appear.

3. Select a template

In the Labelmaker sidebar, click on "Select a template". You will be given several template options. As of writing, you can choose from over 5000+ labels.

There are several categories such as Avery® US Letter, Avery® A4, Avery® Zweckform to print Avery ® Labels for Black Friday, and also, and Herma. In this label guide, we will be using the "Avery 5160" template, which is a commonly used label format.

4. Design your label

Now is the time to start designing your very own labels for a special Black Friday. We are going to insert an image in the labels to decorate them.

The example below shows you the end-result. Let's do it together step-by-step:

Adding an image into your Black Friday using a table

First, place your mouse inside the first cell, the one with black borders. Then add some text inside your cell.

5. Personalize your labels

To create a variety of labels, you can also use a mailing list. That way you could print Black Friday labels and use personalized information from your mailing list such as a Name, Address, City State, Zip Code...

To add an image in your Black Friday labels, follow our guide on How to insert images in your labels. It's possible to add QR codes to your labels for example.

6. Create the labels

Once you are done creating your Black Friday labels, click on "Create labels" at the bottom of the sidebar, on the right. Don’t forget to untick “Use first cell as model” (unless you want to print a full page of the same labels). Wait for the labels to be ready and click on "Open document".

7. Preview before printing

Before printing your work, check that everything is in order, that there are no misalignment issues. Should you need to make some changes, just go back to the original document. Once the modifications are made, simply click on "Create labels'' again. This will create another page of labels.

To print your Black Friday tags, click on "File" > "Print". In the print dialogue, check that the margin is set to none and the scale to 100%. Depending on the label format you chose, you might need to adapt the size of the page. In our example, the Avery® US Letter 5160 requires the size to be "Letter".
