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.

PLEASE BRING BACK DESIGN PRO!!

      This review is from AVERY Labels Formatting and Printing Tips:

      PLEASE bring back DESIGN PRO!! This new one is horrible. It would be okay if you can actually USE a sheet for printing multiple labels more than once instead of actually wasting sheets. With Design Pro, you could chose WHERE to print on the actual labels that were put in the printer, but you cannot with this. Maybe I should send Avery a bill for all of the wasted labels, since I have YET to get anyone that actually understands what I am talking about.

      HP Printer Alignment Issues???? Turn of Print on Both Sides

      By Leo

      from MN

      This review is from AVERY Labels Formatting and Printing Tips:

      I had a problem with my labels lining up correcting and printing using the Avery Software for Windows. My HP printer was the problem. I had the printer set to "Print on Both Sides" to save paper. With this function on, it interfers with the Avery Template lining up the labels.

      Save yourself the frustration and turn off that function. You'll have better alignment and printing success.

      Address labels

      See all my reviews

      This review is from AVERY Labels Formatting and Printing Tips:

      My new problem is the ink bleeding off if it gets damp. I finally got the labels to print...took about an hour of fiddling....and they are a hair off, but I'm using them anyways. If I knew of another label making company I would jump ship.

      Went from good to Horrible suddenly with the new update!!

      from DeSoto, Mo

      See all my reviews

      This review is from AVERY Labels Formatting and Printing Tips:

      First the big box stores dont carry more than 2 packets of most labels. If I order online I have to pay more than $4 a packet more. NOTHING is lining up since your new design update!!!! I have wasted ALOT of labels. I had everything saved and all I did was print a new sheet, well I dont have even half a sheet I can use. Did you change your labels???? I bought the same labels and didnt change anything but we have lots of unusable labels which has caused a big delay in our production not to mention our costs!! It should have been no issue, whats going on, plus ive been on hold FOREVER!!!!

          I wouldn't have given it a 1 star, but I had to or it wouldnt let me thru. Seeing as how I couldnt get 1 decent label out of averies mess...I have printed with template from other companies had not one issue. I spent a small fortune on avery labels, spent a eek designing my custom labels only to find that their template doesnt match the actual label sheets. Tried re aligning, but at best you will get 1 label that is decent the rest will not align. I want my money back and the time I wasted...Going to try and see if I can find my supplier for my bottle labels and see what they have now... Hope I have enough time left.
