Need help with tables in MS Word

I got a bunch of free papers today with labels on them. They're perfect for address labels, so I went into word and drew up a table.

I got everything sized up but I can't figure out how to print it with the table lines hidden? When I print it the lines barely cross over the actual sticker making it look like crap.

Also, how do you make the copyright symbol in Word?

Thanks

Click anywhere in the table and then go to the Table menu and click Select Table. Then go to Format...Borders and Shading. Remove all the borders from the table.

Go to Insert...Symbol. Select the Special Characters tab. (Or just press Alt+Ctrl+C.)


As always, your OS and software version would help. If you're on a Mac, none of this might work, for example.

Have you tried any of the built-in label forms in Word? I believe you can get to them under Tools>Letters and Mailings>Envelopes and Labels. There are quite a bit to choose from, so check out the sizes and what not.

About the copyright symbol, another way to do it (at least in the versions I've used recently) is to type (c). Word will autocorrect that into the copyright symbol. Works for (R) as well.
