Google docs is a great platform, especially when it comes to printing labels. You can easily make and print labels using an add-on known as label make. The process is easy ad-free. Alternatively, you can use another add-on known as “Avery” to print labels I google docs. Google add-ons are made by different developers across the world to make the platform better. Just like an app store with many developers making different apps to suit different people.
The basic label maker is free, but you can upgrade to premium packages for more advanced features. For example, you can create unlimited labels using the premium plugin. Also, you c add unlimited recipients and unlimited merges if you upgrade compared to the free option. In addition, you can unlock lifetime access by just paying a one-time fee of $79.99.
