Hi there. I recommend using inkscape. Its free and quite advanced yet simple to use. It allows you to design to dimensions so you know how big the labels will be. Word excel and powerpoint are also design for,different task. Inkscape is a layout program, and should be much more straightforward to get a good result once you know how to use it.

I use PowerPoint then the 'snip' tool to save as a jpg. Then I use Word to print the jpg via Avery labels. Labels are cheap via ebay
