Avery 4” x 6” products are perfect for when you need to print just a few labels or cards at a time. These steps can help you successfully print a Word document or a PDF generated by Avery Design & Print.

Note: If you are printing a PDF from Design & Print, and use Firefox or Chrome, be sure to follow the extra instructions in the print dialog or your project will not align properly.

 

Step 1 - Make Changes Required for Your Browser: If you use Design & Print with Internet Explorer or Safari, skip to Step 2. If you use Chrome, be sure the “Fit to Page” box on the print page is unchecked. If you use Firefox, you need to be sure to print from Adobe Acrobat or Adobe Reader or your project won’t print correctly. Follow the steps shown on the print page below or switch to a different browser.

Step 2 - Change the Paper Size to 4” x 6”: When you’re satisfied with your project design, click Print. This will open either your printer’s or your browser’s dialog box. Before you click OK, you need to find the Paper Size setting. This may be on the first screen you see, or you may need to look for a Properties or Preferences button and click that. The Paper Size box may be on a tab inside the dialog box, so you might need to look around to find it. On the list of different paper sizes, choose 4” x 6”. If you have the choice between Landscape or Portrait, choose Portrait.

Here are a few different variations:

Step 3 - Change Paper Type to Labels, Heavyweight or Cardstock: In that same printer dialog box, look for Paper Type and change it from plain paper to Labels, Heavyweight or Cardstock. You can choose Photo if your printer doesn’t have any of these settings available.

 

Step 4 - Prepare Your Printer: You want your printer to hold the 4” x 6” product snugly. You might need to slide the paper guide over to the 4” width position. Or you may have a tray especially for 4” x 6” products.

 

Step 5 - Print a Test Sheet: Cut a plain piece of paper to 4” x 6” and feed it through the manual feed tray or the 4” x 6” tray to ensure your project will print correctly. Hold the printed sheet behind your Avery product to check the alignment of your design. Slight adjustments may be necessary. If the entire sheet is slightly misaligned, adjust the top and/or left margins slightly if your program has this feature.

 

Step 6 - Print Your Avery Product: When satisfied with the layout, print on your Avery product.
