    Reloading Box Labels

    Here is a Reloading Box Label template I made in Word 2003 that uses the Avery 5163 shipping label (or comparable). You can modify this for your own custom labels. When you first open the document in Word, select "Save as" and under "Document type", select "Template", then save. Now whenever you need more labels, open word, select "New", then "Templates on my Computer", then "5163_Avery_Reloading_Labels". Now you can print them to your hearts content.

    Hope you find it as useful as I do......

    Have you tried opening Word and then opening the file from inside Word?

    Under "Save as Type" select "Document Template". This is 2003, but 2010 should be similar.....

    Hope this helps...

    I just ripped off a dozen sheets and they printed perfectly. Thank you for doing this. You're a gentleman and a scholar.

    I use a label maker. Type in what you want slap it on an ammo box, bag, or ammo can. Put something else in the box, take off the old one or just put new one over top. No computer or printer needed, I have one in the garage one on top of the safe.

    I use AutoCAD to make the labels and print on the full sheet of Avery label sheets.
    I use AutoCAD all the time in making drawings for gun projects.

    I like the looks of your labels in word, gives me ideas.
    I made some labels using excel that works for me. I made them to go on the end of the box.
    I forget the avery labels they fit, but I like the end labels, you have to trim them a little as they are sometimes longer than the end of the box. I also make a label that goes on top of the box as well. I use excel because I am more familiar with it. I made them so that some info is one color and the actual what's used is another color, pretty. I have sold some with these labels and the folks liked them.
    I use a canon s800 as the printer so it takes the labels better.

    I've put way too much thought into this.

    They go on the cardboard boxes with the styrofoam inserts that Midway sells cheap. There is a similar design for the 45ACP and 7.62x39mm stuff I reload.

    I think you should start a new thread, rather than piggy-back this thread. Just my 2¢ of course.....
