I’m not sure if I understand exactly what you’re asking, but did you get sheets of labels that are 2×4?  If so, you use word to create sheets address labels of various sizes under the mailing section.  That might get you what you want.

I don’t know what kind of “labels” you are talking about. Do you have the brand name , or name of the product ? Maybe someone has used those before.

If it’s like self adhesive labels, you could go in your computer under Microsoft Word and then click on the Mailings heading. Then Labels on the left . A small box comes up.  Pick Options, and then your “vendor” name .   Don’t know if that helps.

It will take a little longer to set up, but you can do this without a template. Here’s the basic run down

1) get a ruler

2)open Word (I’m using word 2010 if you have an older version some of these steps may be in a slightly different spot)

3)go to page layout and choose the size button

4)select the size paper the labels are on

5)click on orientation and choose the one that matches your labels

6)measure your labels.  You’ll need to know how big the space between the edge and each label is- both on the sides and the top and bottom

7)click on margins, set them to match the measurements you just took. 

8)click on insert and choose insert text box

9)with the text box you just created selected, click on format

10)enter the size of the text box as 2″x4″

11)still under the format tab, choose shape outline and select none

12)copy the text box, and paste 2 more copies of it on the page

13) measure the spacing between your labels and drag and drop the text boxes in the appropriate spots.

14) add your text (Center it, bold it, whatever font you want etc)

15)print a trial run on regular computer paper.  Put it under the label and hold it to a bright light or sunny window and check your spacing and layout

*if needed adjust the spacing of the text boxes to fit

16)print your labels.

Like I said- takes more time, but you will have printed labels when you’re done.

Do not overmake many don’t grab a favor, I saw that on the list of things they spent time and wish they did not after the wedding. Mine were time consuming and not all were gone.
