  2. In Word for Windows, click the Labels tab, and then click Options.... In Word for Mac OS X, click Options....
  3. From the menu next to "Label products:" or "Label vendors", choose the brand of your labels. Then, in the "Product number:" field, choose the label you need, for example:
    • 5315 for notecards

    Note: If you wish to change margins or other settings, click New Label.... Enter a name for your custom label, and change the settings to your specifications. After you click OK, Word will show your label name in the "Product number:" field.
