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.

Do Not Use Avery Online to Print Yourself!

By Regretful Consumer

from Virginia

Pros

  • 18294

Cons

  • Alignment Is Horrible
  • It Will Waste Your Money
  • Poor Quality

Best Uses

    This review is from AVERY Labels Formatting and Printing Tips:

    I purchased a 10 pack of Avery 18294 Return Address Labels and followed the instructions that directed me to Avery.com. The template that Avery provided for the labels had horrible alignment. Each time I printed only 3 or 4 out of 60 labels were good quality. The rest were out of alignment. I tried to readjust everything (printer, template, etc.) but nothing rectified the issue. Do not use Avery Online to Print Yourself.

        This review is from AVERY Labels Formatting and Printing Tips:

        3 weeks later and I am still waiting for replacement! We even went out and purchased a new printer! This is ridiculous for packaging! And it seems as though Avery is my only option...no other labels available in our area. I called 3 times and got no solution..."don't know what to tell you" was what I got.

        This hold up has cost me a GREAT deal of respect at work as this is a part of my job!

        Try Chrome, Not Firefox Browser for Printing

        By JP

        from San Francisco CA

        This review is from AVERY Labels Formatting and Printing Tips:

        The misalignment with pritning was solved by changing web browsers before printing. Firefox didn't work; Chrome did the trick.

        In other news, the textured paper didn't hold laserprinter's ink well... color flaking off.

            This review is from AVERY Labels Formatting and Printing Tips:

            Well if your objective is to sell labels you have succeeded. My print not only drifted down the page but the right column of labels lost the left edge of the label. And there is no way of getting help from Avery. Wasted my labels my ink and my time.

            Gave it one star because zero stars was not an option.
