Avery Easy Peel Labels


Removing labels is easier than ever with the new Avery Easy Peel Feature.

See the instructions below for tips on using the new Easy Peel Feature. Or if you do not want to separate the sheet into columns, simply peel the labels as you normally would.


Watch our demo of the Easy Peel Labels.

 

Avery Inkjet Labels

  • Before you print onto a label sheet, first print onto a blank piece of paper. Place the printed sheet in front of a label sheet and then hold the sheets up to a light to make sure the positioning is correct.
  • Refer to your printer manual for loading and feeding recommendations. Many printers have special instructions for loading labels.
  • Fan the label sheets before loading them into the paper tray. Do not bend the corners.
  • For easier feeding in most printers, place label sheets in the paper tray on top of 25 sheets of plain paper.
  • Adjust the paper width lever so that it barely touches the edge of the label stack and the labels don't buckle.
  • For best results, let ink on the product dry completely before removing labels from the sheet.
  • Store unused label sheets flat in the original box in a cool, dry place.
  • Sheets of inkjet labels can be passed through an inkjet printer only once; the tight paper path of an inkjet printer can cause the label to curl on multiple passes through the printer. This could cause the label to jam or peel off inside the printer, resulting in an expensive repair bill. The Avery guarantee of jam-free performance extends only to sheets of labels that have been fed through an inkjet printer a single time.
  • Only labels designed for an inkjet printer should be used with inkjet printers. Manual, copier and laser labels will not feed through consistently and may damage inkjet printers.
  • Avery Fluorescent and Pastel Color Laser Labels are not recommended for inkjet printers.
  • For trouble-free label printing, have your printer thoroughly cleaned on a regular basis.
  • Name Badge Labels are designed for most fabrics except leather, suede, silk, plastic, velvet, corduroy, vinyl, and lamé.
 

Avery Laser Labels

  • Before you print onto a label sheet, first print onto a blank piece of paper. Place the printed sheet in front of a label sheet, and then hold the sheets up to a light to make sure the positioning is correct.
  • Fan the label sheets before loading them into the paper tray. Do not bend the corners.
  • Only labels designed for a laser printer should be used with laser printers. Manual, copier, and inkjet labels will not feed through consistently and may damage laser printers.
  • Most laser products are designed to work in laser printers when printed directly from the automatic-feed tray.
  • Refer to your printer manual for loading and feeding recommendations. Many printers have special instructions regarding the direction in which you should load sheets.
  • Sheets of laser labels can be passed through a laser printer only once because the heat of the printer causes the adhesive to soften. If a sheet of labels is passed through the printer a second time, the adhesive could ooze and adhere to the inner workings of the printer, causing the labels to jam or peel off. Avery's guarantee of jam-free performance extends only to sheets of labels that have been fed through a laser printer a single time.
  • Avery Fluorescent and Pastel Color Laser Labels are not recommended for inkjet printers.
  • For trouble-free label printing, have your printer thoroughly cleaned on a regular basis.
  • Name Badge Labels are designed for most fabrics except leather, suede, silk, plastic, velvet, corduroy, vinyl, and lamé.

I purchased a 10 pack of Avery 18294 Return Address Labels and followed the instructions that directed me to Avery.com. The template that Avery provided for the labels had horrible alignment. Each time I printed only 3 or 4 out of 60 labels were good quality. The rest were out of alignment. I tried to readjust everything (printer, template, etc.) but nothing rectified the issue. Do not use Avery Online to Print Yourself.

      This review is from AVERY Labels Formatting and Printing Tips:

      OMG! I've wasted 8 sheets of my 10 in pkg. I've tried to align it through avery but the spacing isn't right two top labels are slightly off and I get two labels that are good and the bottom labels are off to left and high.

      These labels aren't cheap so I wouldn't waste my money.

          This review is from AVERY Labels Formatting and Printing Tips:

          Wasted half my day. As a business owner this is time poorly spent. I was able to make the label design and print on REGULAR paper. When the time came to use the actual template paper my printer keeps rejecting the paper saying it has not been fed in aligned. Which makes 0 sense because I adjusted the alignment on the printer itself multiple times and it is the same size as regular paper. Next I tried calling customer service and had to listen to elevator music for over an hour before hanging up with no response. Then I wrote an email to the email listed on back of the label paper. No surprise the email is inactive... WASTE OF TIME AND MONEY NEVER BUY AVERY PRODUCTS AGAIN

          Words on labels misaligned compared to print preview

          By AM

          from Toronto

          This review is from AVERY Labels Formatting and Printing Tips:

          Two problems. I used the recommended Avery template for labels 22806 and 22816. The border kept falling out the box for 16. It aligned perfectly for 06.. or so I thought. I was happy when I first saw the colours and alignment, which was all I checked for on a test print, since everything in the print preview looked perfect. After running off over 200 labels I noticed that the last letter of a word on one line ended up on the next line. I went back to the screen and I can't find anyway to fix it as it looks perfect on the screen.
