How do I get the printing to align properly on the page?

You can try these things:

 

  • Be sure you are using a genuine Avery product – non-Avery products are not optimized for our templates, and are not manufactured to our specifications.
  • Test print. Print first on a sheet of plain paper to determine which direction to feed in your printer and to check your design and alignment.
  • Printer settings. When you click Print, look in the Properties options in the print dialog box. Adjust Paper Type to Labels and Print Quality to Best. If your printer doesn't have a Labels setting, choose Heavyweight or Cardstock.
  • Feed once. Don't re-print on the same sheet of labels.
  • For additional help, go to our Help Center and choose Printing under General Help.

      Folks once you finish all your editing and go to print MAKE SURE you uncheck the box that says "fit to Page" The printer is slowly reducing and adjusting text from top left to bottom right to "fit text". By unchecking, it should be straight through out page. I am printing labels on product 6791. I am using a Canon MF8580CDW. I also changed paper source to labels and it cam out perfectly. Very frustrating and directions sucks but try this on blank sheet first. Hopefully it helps

          I have tried everything to get my labels to line up. There are no templates for WORD 2016, and old templates don't line up at all. I use Avery labels and use their program and no matter what I do they will not line up. Any adjustment just makes it worse. I waste at least half the labels on the page. I purchased 4 different labels and NONE of them print properly.

          Avery template for 5195 Laser Labels is a disaster.

          By Johnny C

          This review is from AVERY How do I get the printing to align properly on the page?:

          The Avery 5195 template (60 easy peal labels) for MS Word does not align correctly on my computer and printer. Avery "Help" and "General Help" offer no real advice about how to solve the problem. You would think a company like Avery would do a much better job. I'm not alone. Other commenters have had the same problem. Don't buy the product until Avery comes to its senses and tells you how to fix the problem without burning through expensive label pages.

          Disappoiinted with Alignment Issues

          By Cindy

          from Myrtle Beach, SC

          This review is from AVERY How do I get the printing to align properly on the page?:

          I have used Avery labels FOR YEARS without issue. With my most recent purchase, every single page has wasted labels due to alignment issues. I have followed the instructions and checked my printer settings to no avail. This is not user error. Too many 1 star ratings with the same complaints tells me this is designer error. I have wasted too much time on this and wish I had my money back for this now inferior product. So disappointing for a company that used to have the best labels and templates.
