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.

extremely disappointing

By cowboy mn

from Minnesota

Pros

    Cons

    • Difficult To Navigate
    • Freezes or Crashes

    Best Uses

      This review is from Avery Design & Print:

      a long download, not particularly intuitive. Finally got everything to look the right way after several crashes and it refuses to print. Sends stuff to the spool and just hangs on spooling on multiple printers that work perfect otherwise. A waste of 3 hours.

      YOU FINALLY BROKE IT

      By JIM COX

      from CANADA

      This review is from Avery Design & Print:

      AVERY LABEL MAKER WAS A GREAT PROGRAM UNTIL YOU LET SOME WANNABE PROGRAMER MAKE A MESS OF IT. HOW AM i SUPPOSED TO PRINT ALL MY LABELS NOW THAT THIS PROGRAM NO LONGER WORKS. I SUPPOSE I WONT BE ABLE TO BACKTRACK TO THE OLD PROGRAM. WHAT A SHAME.

      CHECK OUT THE PICTURE. HOW AM I SUPPOSED TO PRINT THAT HORIZONTALLY INSTEAD OF VERTICALLY?

            Add those features that worked so well. I had come to count on AVERY products & Software. Unfortunately, it was too much of a mess to work with.

            Very Rudimentary Program, Use DesignPro Instead

            By Randy

            from Florida

            Pros

            • Non That I See

            Cons

            • Too Many To List

            Best Uses

            • Kindergarten Kids Might

            This review is from Avery Design & Print:

            This is not a good program for any business uses. My best advice is to download DesignPro 5.4.
            Here is a link.
