Starting with Avery address labels that are 30 per sheet, such as the 5160 for laser printers or 8160 for inkjet printers, a consumer would use the free Avery Design & Print Online software to create address labels. They can choose a blank or pre-designed Avery template and then type in addresses individually, or use the easy drag-and-drop mail merge to import addresses from a spreadsheet. When the address labels have been printed, the user will see an offer to purchase postage for the project from Stamps.com. If they don’t already have an account at Stamps.com, they can set one up in a few easy steps. After choosing how many postage labels to print, they just print on additional sheets of Avery labels. The postage labels are used just like regular First Class stamps.
“Avery strives to make mailing easy for our consumers. By working with Stamps.com to add postage printing to our Avery Design & Print Online, we have taken ease-of-use to a whole new level,” said Adam Bratter, Marketing Director, Labels & Cards at Avery. “It’s a natural extension of the label printing experience to print addresses and then print the postage to mail the letters. We are excited to offer this convenient option to our consumers.”
“Stamps.com is excited to expand its long time partnership with Avery in order to bring this new, convenient way to print and purchase postage to both Stamps.com and Avery customers,” said Ken McBride, Stamps.com chairman and CEO. “This new Avery and Stamps.com solution is one of the easiest ways to add postage to an Avery address label for business mailings, greeting cards, invitations, or any type of mailing. We think the Avery and Stamps.com communities will love it.”
