Instructions for Vertical (Spine) Labels
Downloading is the easy part, wrong. It is one of the easy parts. The best way to do these if first
download them to your hard drive or a disk.
Then open which ever word processor program you use. Copy and Paste
the image from where ever it opens up at, (ie picture program), and past the image. You'll need to resize the object as you
see fit. I recommend from top to bottom 3/4 (three quarters of an inch) left to right I recommend just a tick longer than
5 and 1/2 inches. If you make them a little longer or wider you can always cut them down when you get to that point.
Once you've resized it, copy and paste all the way down the page and leaving an empty text line in between. Just hit
return twice after you paste each image.
You're ready to print. WAIT, you need the right kind of paper. I recommend
White Full Sheet Labels. It's sticker paper. Avery makes the paper for both InkJet and Laser printers. I have an ink printer
and I use the number 8255 (or 8165). That's to help you find the kind of sticker papers that I use. Print up the labels, and
cut them out and place them on the spine (side) of your vhs cassete tape.
Normally I fit 9 - 13 spine labels on
one page in my doc file and cutting them out is good with a paper cutter. Before you remove the backing, check to make sure
the size is good so is doesn't overlap the small lip on the cassette. That's if you're picky like me though. If it is, trim
it down a little. Happy label making!!!
