Doubling Your Money

Please Note: This article is written for users of the following Microsoft Word versions: 97, 2000, 2002, and 2003. If you are using a later version (Word 2007 or later), this tip may not work for you. For a version of this tip written specifically for later versions of Word, click here: Doubling Your Money.

No, this is not a get-rich-quick scheme. (I will leave that to other e-mail you may get. :>)) Instead, this is a common-sense way to double the value you get from some of your label stock. You should consider different ways you can use your label stock to make it go further.

For instance, imagine you are using the Avery 3M Post-it notes for ink jet or laser printers. The 3 x 4-1/4 version of these labels are six per page, but you can change to a landscape format and design twelve per page, instead. After printing, cut the sheets in half with a paper cutter, and you have effectively doubled your money.

You can use the same technique with other types of printer labels—just think how you are going to use them, and then look for easy ways to extend how they are used. Clever uses of the labels can be very cost effective in the long run.
