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

You can try these things:

  • Print on both a plain sheet of paper and your label or card sheet. Compare the sheets to check alignment.
  • Change the printer properties to “label” or “heavyweight” in the print dialog box. When you click Print and choose your printer, click on the Properties button and look on the menu for Paper options.
  • If using Avery Design & Print Online, use the Make a Printer Adjustment option on the print page. This will allow you to shift the printing up, down or to the side. View demo.
  • If using Microsoft® Word, adjust the columns or rows by clicking on the border and dragging it to a new position.
  • For additional help, go to our Help Center and choose Printing under General Help.

I didn't ask you to respond, but there was no follow up when I couldn't get it to work, HOWEVER, this morning I came across the project and DISCOVERED A downlaoded Template that works wieth Microsft Word. Wow! How slick! I did have to make an adjustment in the margin of 1 1/0th of an inch. By doing so I lost the last line (=4 labels per page. Not a huge deal. Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!!! God bless!

This template has problems. The alignment was okay for a while, the first half of the page would print properly and the further you went down, the alignment would move slightly up, but it wasn't that bad. Then I went to print labels yesterday and its completely out of line! I thought that I may have accidentally made an adjustment to the alignment and saved the document, so I re download the template. I had the same issues but much worst!! I followed Avery's advice and changed my page size to A4, which made the alignment so awful it didn't even print within the correct label. I also tried to adjust using the side bar, but when I go to move it, the label outlines disappear. In addition to this I also printed out a printer alignment sheet and realigned my printer, but the issue still persist. I use this template everyday as a part of my job, so I'm at my ends wits trying to figure out how to fix this issue so that I can do my job.

    Worst HELP I ever read in a program!

        Writing in for help doesn't get the help needed.
        1. How to print 10up bus. cards on a sheet when 3 show up in the print view?
        2. How to access Avery files for my stored files? Only 'my computer' files are the option, not company storage.
        3. No place to contact you either email or phone. The programmer must have smelled glue when working!

            I had to manually create a template for sticker label 5294 because no matter what I did, the Avery template wouldn't print properly. Always skewed and unusable. I even spoke to someone on the live chat. Still no help. So unless you're up for measuring the sheets and making one on Indesign, avoid.

            Horrible Product

            I wish I had read the comments on here before wasting half my day trying to print labels. What a horrible product to offer. Expensive labels wasted because - like everyone else - couldn't get to align. Tried online version, offline version, used acrobat, and even tried changing settings that were recommended by other users. Worthless! Avery should be ashamed to keep advertising this.

            This software looks great but performs poorly. What a terrible waste of time. I am not sure how a company can actually be in business with a product that actually does not work. Amazing. Do not ever use the software. Terrible.
