Default Customising label size in mail merge

Can anyone tell me if Word in Office Professional 2013 has any facility for customising the actual size of label I am trying to use ? I am merging from an Excel spread sheet in the same Office suite. My labels do not appear in any of the lists hence the query. Or do I just give up and buy standard sized labels ??

Most labels do correspond to standard sizes, of which Word has a huge range available, however if you do have a non-standard size, you can create it Mailings > Labels > Options > New label - Give it a name in place of the name already listed, add or change the measurements and save it. It will then be available to use in mail merge. It helps to start from a label that is close to what you have already.

If you are creating a custom label, then create a new document from the label and add borders to the cells. Then print it on plain paper which you can hold over the label sheet to check the dimensions rather than waste lots of labels getting the emasurements correct.
