How to Create Your Labels using Google Docs

It is easy and effortless to create your labels in Google Doc. We recommend using Google Slides.

Slides allows for easy editing of both text and images.

Create a new Google Slides presentation. Change the page to 8.5 x 11 slide:

File > Page Setup > Custom > 8.5 x 11 inches (for landscape choose 11 x 8.5 inches)
