I emailed you the file. Here are the directions if you need to do this again. ๐Ÿ™‚

  1. In Word, go to View > Header/Footer
  2. With your cursor in the header, go to Insert > Picture > From File…
  3. Choose your image and click ok.
  4. Right click (or control click on a Mac) on your image and go to Text Wrapping > Behind Text
  5. Copy your image (with your image selected, Edit > Copy)
  6. Paste your image (Edit > Paste)
  7. Move your new image wherever you want it.
  8. Follow steps 6 and 7 for however many images you want in your Word doc.
  9. Go to View > Header footer to get back into your standard view. The images will be faded back, but they will print solid.
  10. Change your margins so that your text fits in the label area

Let me know if you need anything else! ๐Ÿ™‚

You could just make a new photoshop document that is 8.5×11 and lay your labels out on that.  Flatten your original layout (layer > merge visible) and copy that layer three times.

You can then create text boxes on top of the layers with your border/background where you can type in the addresses in whatever font you want.

What I like about PS is that it will print exactly what you layout and, unlike Word, will let you put whatever your want wherever you want.

Haha, you’re welcome. I did letterhead Word templates for a year at a job I hated. I learned how to do it really fast. ๐Ÿ˜‰

Bellagio saves yet another bride-to-be from disaster! Smile you’re awesome!

@almergele: hope things worked out great in the end for you!

Sounds like life has been stressful for you lately…take a deep cleansing breath….everything will work out fine. And if it doesn’t and things go a little haywire, oh well. That’s what life is all about! Just remember…it’s not the end of the world if things aren’t perfect. Good luck! And try to have fun through this whole DIY process (take it from a fellow DIY bride-to-be ๐Ÿ™‚
