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?

Terrible

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...Read complete review

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.

      What a Pain! It downloaded fine on my laptop. I printed one page of labels. I liked them so went to print more and it would no longer communicate to my printer! I then tried to download it on my sons older laptop and it wanted to take 7 hrs to download!! Too much time wasted on Designing and messing with this website!!

      Works well when it works. Works on my laptop every time, but on my desktop it just freezes on start up every time, even after reinstall and virus apps turned off. Both systems are Windows 7 64bit

      Pros

        • Difficult To Navigate
        • Freezes or Crashes

        • Prints Wrong

        Best Uses

        • Nothing

        This review is from Avery Design & Print:

        This is some of the worst software I have ever used! It refuses to save changes and I've had to start from scratch again and again. It continually screws up the layering of images and can't print a png for nothing. It loses text completely and forgets sequential text items are such and I have to re-enter them. This is completely unusable.

          I thought I was going to have a hard time figuring this out, but it all went smoothly and the labels look really nice! I was even able to add my own picture design. Loved it. Thank you!

          Works better than DesignPro!

              This review is from Avery Design & Print:

              Contrary to reviews from the luddites, DesignPro was horrible software. You could not print labels from Excel Spreadsheet lists using DesignPro.

              Design & Print has a built-in Mail Merge feature which lets you create address labels from excel spreadsheets. Great software!
