I can't understand all the negative reviews. Using the downloadable Windows installer for my Windows 8.1 Pro 64-bit machine, it works like a charm. It could be slightly more intuitive; however, it is easy to figure out if you ever used any type of labeling or greeting card software in the past (just two of many I've bought and used are Art Explosion Pro, Hallmark software, etc). Not quite as robust as Art Explosion, of course, but for free software it is quite the deal.

The program does allow me to save my address label projects (have not tried a greeting card yet, but will update once I do). It does allow reopening saved project files with no problem other than having to look at the bottom center of the Open a Saved Project tab screen once the program launches to see the correct link (middle center defaults to your online Avery account - not a deal breaker for me either way, but do prefer local machine storage as I backup regularly via Macrium Reflect free edition and Google drive).

Also, truthfully, the program does take a little longer to save and open a project than it really should, as I am using an AMD FX-6300 MHz processor, which normally blazes through whatever I through at it...this is the first program that has a several second delay when saving and opening, as well as when printing. But for free, can't complain too much.

I was ready to run when I saw the reviews, but past experience (about 8 years ago I think) with Avery software helped take a gamble, and it was well worth the roll of the dice. And did I mention, it is free?

This software is missing features that were available in DesignPro. You can no longer specify where, on the physical page, the printing should start. You can no longer specify to print multiple copies of a given label on the same page. I am currently shopping for an alternative and am open to suggestions. In the meantime, I have to keep one computer on Windows 7 just to print labels.

I am Beyond Frustrated

By Erin

from NC

Pros

    Cons

    • Inaccurate Controls
    • Not Very Powerful

    Best Uses

      This review is from Avery Design & Print:

      I have been trying to print labels for products I sell. Every single time, it leaves out ONE letter in my company name. It appears in the print preview, but vanishes when printed (part of the name is Wildflower and it insists on printing Wild lower). Nothing else is missing, I have tried changing fonts, I put in brand new cartridges in my brand new printer, nothing works. And I can't seem to get any customer support because I can't get onto my personal computer until after they've closed up shop, and God forbid there is an email address to submit issues to.

            This review is from Avery Design & Print:

            Have used Avery label products for years. Been a software enginner for 25 years. Never had such a frustrating experience with a website, online tools, downloaded templates/products and paper feeding issues. Have wasted an hour of my life with no usable results.

            There is nothing to like since the program opens to a blank page.
