Avery Easy Peel Labels


Removing labels is easier than ever with the new Avery Easy Peel Feature.

See the instructions below for tips on using the new Easy Peel Feature. Or if you do not want to separate the sheet into columns, simply peel the labels as you normally would.


Watch our demo of the Easy Peel Labels.

 

Avery Inkjet Labels

  • Before you print onto a label sheet, first print onto a blank piece of paper. Place the printed sheet in front of a label sheet and then hold the sheets up to a light to make sure the positioning is correct.
  • Refer to your printer manual for loading and feeding recommendations. Many printers have special instructions for loading labels.
  • Fan the label sheets before loading them into the paper tray. Do not bend the corners.
  • For easier feeding in most printers, place label sheets in the paper tray on top of 25 sheets of plain paper.
  • Adjust the paper width lever so that it barely touches the edge of the label stack and the labels don't buckle.
  • For best results, let ink on the product dry completely before removing labels from the sheet.
  • Store unused label sheets flat in the original box in a cool, dry place.
  • Sheets of inkjet labels can be passed through an inkjet printer only once; the tight paper path of an inkjet printer can cause the label to curl on multiple passes through the printer. This could cause the label to jam or peel off inside the printer, resulting in an expensive repair bill. The Avery guarantee of jam-free performance extends only to sheets of labels that have been fed through an inkjet printer a single time.
  • Only labels designed for an inkjet printer should be used with inkjet printers. Manual, copier and laser labels will not feed through consistently and may damage inkjet printers.
  • Avery Fluorescent and Pastel Color Laser Labels are not recommended for inkjet printers.
  • For trouble-free label printing, have your printer thoroughly cleaned on a regular basis.
  • Name Badge Labels are designed for most fabrics except leather, suede, silk, plastic, velvet, corduroy, vinyl, and lamé.
 

Avery Laser Labels

  • Before you print onto a label sheet, first print onto a blank piece of paper. Place the printed sheet in front of a label sheet, and then hold the sheets up to a light to make sure the positioning is correct.
  • Fan the label sheets before loading them into the paper tray. Do not bend the corners.
  • Only labels designed for a laser printer should be used with laser printers. Manual, copier, and inkjet labels will not feed through consistently and may damage laser printers.
  • Most laser products are designed to work in laser printers when printed directly from the automatic-feed tray.
  • Refer to your printer manual for loading and feeding recommendations. Many printers have special instructions regarding the direction in which you should load sheets.
  • Sheets of laser labels can be passed through a laser printer only once because the heat of the printer causes the adhesive to soften. If a sheet of labels is passed through the printer a second time, the adhesive could ooze and adhere to the inner workings of the printer, causing the labels to jam or peel off. Avery's guarantee of jam-free performance extends only to sheets of labels that have been fed through a laser printer a single time.
  • Avery Fluorescent and Pastel Color Laser Labels are not recommended for inkjet printers.
  • For trouble-free label printing, have your printer thoroughly cleaned on a regular basis.
  • Name Badge Labels are designed for most fabrics except leather, suede, silk, plastic, velvet, corduroy, vinyl, and lamé.

I thought I was using Avery Online the same way I would use their templates in MS Word. I have had nothing but problems, I have to enter a text box for every SINGLE label, and if you have to go back and edit everything, FORGET IT, it is a nightmare. I recently created 3 pages of address labels (#5160); after reviewing them with my boss, she wanted to make changes to each label. In theory it should not be difficult, right? Right... WRONG. I'm not sure I would recommend this website for anyone, beginner or not.

Label 22825

By Maria

from NY

This review is from AVERY Labels Formatting and Printing Tips:

I use avery labels all the time and have never had the trouble I did with these labels printing. Each row showed the image in a different spot so the tools online where o no help. I finally started reading other peoples reviews and opened the template and printed on Chrome and everything printed as it should. I wish I ha read that about 2 hours ago. For those using firefox, that is the problem with alignment.

Alignment nightmare

    • Expensive

    Best Uses

      This review is from AVERY Labels Formatting and Printing Tips:

      I've used Avery for my business for years with great results. Since they have started the "we print", I can't get any products to align the entire page. I've used several computers, and several printers. I am NOT the problem as Livechat claimed. If this is how Avery is trying to make more money, Avery just lost my very loyal patronage. I am now forced to find other ways to label my product. I will pay a higher cost through waste with Avery, or a higher cost for local convenience. Guess who wins.

      Extremly disappointed

          This review is from AVERY Labels Formatting and Printing Tips:

          I was using Avery online and previously very happy. We had standard Explorer upgrades to all our business computers. Its been nothing but problems since. I can get to the point of selecting the final print (when it comes up as a PDF) and I get a little box in the corner of the screen with an X. It keeps saying I need Adobe. We have the newest version and all the other forms in PDF seem to work...except Avery's. After much frustration and the tech guys saying its a Avery product problem I decided to try at home. I wasted all kinds of different labels (we use 4-5 different styles)trying to get my HP to line up. Out of a sheet of labels I am lucky if the middle 2 are usable and lined up. It starts out too far left and as it moves across it winds up being too far right. I wont even address the up and down part....it's too frustrating. I've attempted to adjust the settings but all that does is gets me close on one side and causes the other rows to be way off. I am now looking elsewhere for a suitable product. I'll be professional and just say, very disappointed Avery!

          WHAT HAPPENED??

          By Sue

          from Finksburg MD

          This review is from AVERY Labels Formatting and Printing Tips:

          Come on, Avery! Get it together. I also have used the templates for years without problems, now the labels print off kilter. I have wasted ink by trying to "nudge" the print job using Avery tools, but it either doesn't work or goes too far.
          There is an instruction that states to "uncheck fit to page" that I have always used; however, for some reason that option in no longer available on my printer dialogue box (HP).
          Not sure if that is the problem, but I should still be able to align the printing without wasting labels.

          Terrible templates

              This review is from AVERY Labels Formatting and Printing Tips:

              The first time I used the templates they worked great. The last few times I've tried, the templates are way off. Following the product code and template codes they provided, I've wasted a third of each label sheet due to their product error. Maybe that's what they are going for....to get us to buy more product. Well, my next set of labels will NOT be an Avery product!
