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.

Avery Design & Print Program

By Connie

from Ohio

Pros

  • None

Cons

  • Never Got It To Work

Best Uses

  • None

This review is from Avery Design & Print:

I could not get it to run. It only showed a blank white screen. Spent 2 hours on this. Installed and uninstalled this program twice. Both time, I got a blank white screen. The tech directed me to the online program. It doesn't keep my settings(Font size and type). Love the old DesignPro. Avery needs to check their programs before releasing it. Oh yes, the tech ended the chat. So don't chat with them since the person didn't help.

      possibly the worst software I have ever encountered

      By me

      from boston

      This review is from Avery Design & Print:

      I don't have time to learn how to use this. I am very computer savvy and I just wasted 20 minutes and still don't have printed labels. Whatever happened to templates built into Word documents? Why is this so complicated? I just want to print tabs. This is ridiculous.

      Worked Perfect

      By Jordon

      from Fort Wayne, IN

      • Accurate Colors and Controls
      • Easy To Collaborate Across Programs
      • Easy To Customize

      Cons

        Best Uses

          This review is from Avery Design & Print:

          I normally do not leave comments but seeing that there are so many comments that are opposite to my experience I decided too. The Software worked great, it took 5 minutes to install and about 5 minutes to print.

          extremely disappointing

          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.
