  3. Select a Template
  4. Merge Data From the Google Sheet (optional)
  5. Edit the Document
  6. Open the Generated Document

1. Open a Blank Google Document

Start with a blank document on which you want to print labels.

2. Open the Foxy Labels Add-on

Click “Add-ons” (1), then “Foxy Labels” (2), and then “Create labels” (3) to open the Foxy Labels add-on. If you don’t see the add-on in the list, install the add-on first.

3. Select a Template

In the Foxy Labels sidebar, click the “Label Template” button, which will open a dialog window with the templates catalog.

Use search (1) to locate the desired template. We support templates compatible with Avery, OnlineLabels, and other providers. After you select the template, the label information is displayed at the bottom. Click “Apply template” (2).

4. Merge Data From the Google Sheet (optional)

If you want to merge data from a Google Sheet, click on “Select a spreadsheet.” 

In the file browser window, select the appropriate sheet.

5. Edit the Document

Add text and formatting to the first cell. If you linked a sheet, click “Select a field” to add merge fields. You can also check “Design labels separately” to control the layout of each label, but merging won’t be available in that case. After that, click “Create labels.”

6. Open the Generated Document

Wait until the generation is complete, and then click “Open” to open the final document.

Before printing the document, put the appropriate label paper in the printer. To print the document, click “Print.” In the new dialog window, make sure that margins are set to “none.”
