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.

Labels Don't Print

By Joe

from St. Marys, GA.

This review is from AVERY Labels Formatting and Printing Tips:

I've been trying to print Avery labels for years now, and every time I try, I eventually end up designing my own in another program because Avery's templates either don't line up with their respective labels, or they print blank pages. It's a complete waste of time to even try to print using Avery anymore!

More difficult than using Word

By Marie's ABA

from CT

Pros

    Cons

    • Difficult To Edit
    • Difficult To Use

    Best Uses

      This review is from AVERY Labels Formatting and Printing Tips:

      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.

      Prints label design, but not text.

      By Brainbuster

      from Indianapolis, IN

      Pros

        Cons

        • Can't Print Text Entered

        Best Uses

          This review is from AVERY Labels Formatting and Printing Tips:

          It prints the designs beautifully.
          But that's useless since it leaves the text I entered onto the label blank when it's printed out.

          So now I have just a label with a design on it.

            After two days and re-downloading the product a couple times it just will not send the label to the printer. No help available and I am extremely frustrated.
