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?

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.

Mostly useless on Apple Mac

By Artist

from Ohio

Pros

    Cons

    • Freezes or Crashes
    • Not Very Powerful

    Best Uses

    • Example Bad Mac Software

    This review is from Avery Design & Print:

    Design & Print for the Mac is the WORST application I have ever run on an Apple product.

    Why does Apple disable Java? Because it is a security risk and unreliable. That tells everything customers need to know about Avery's decision making for the version that allegedly runs on the Mac. I write "allegedly" because the product freezes when trying to load a previous project. ...And, I have it running on a top-of-the-line iMac 5k, one of the fastest computers made by Apple, and Design & Print has all the speed of a snail.

    Advice to Avery: start over. Hire some real Apple Developers to write the app in Swift for modern Macs.

    App won't open in Windows 7

    By Liz

    from Bolivar, MO

    This review is from Avery Design & Print:

    Unable to open program in Windows 7 even after multiple uninstalls and reinstalls. Have tried various compatibility settings. I love Design Pro 5 and was hoping for at least the same level of ease of use but it won't even open! Very disappointed with this download.

    Very good for free

    By Eric

    from Fort Lauderdale, FL

    Pros

    • Labels For Dummies

    Cons

    • Interface Doesnt Save
    • Java Slow

    Best Uses

    • For Printing Labels

    This review is from Avery Design & Print:

    Our clients paralegals got mud for brains. And even they were able to figure this one out.

    The application is simple to use, and has an attractive UI. And works as advertised. It's great for dummies.

    But it has some cons that knock off a star:
    1. It's programmed in Java, so it's slow to load, and sluggish to operate. Not terrible so. But enough to be annoying.
    2. When a template is saved, this application really needs to save it's interface settings along with the template. So the next time the 'dumb' user opens up the application 'Edit One' instead of 'Edit All' is automatically selected. Why? Cause this clients users can't remember to click the 'Edit One' button themselves and blame it on us for not being able to do it for them. Nor can they remember where they put their notes on how to use the application. So, save the interface settings with the template!

    Otherwise, it's good. Works as advertised. If you can figure out where the power button is to turn on your computer, you most likely can figure out what buttons to push to make this pretty little label program work for you.

    Not Backward Compatible

    By Larry

    from Austin TX

    This review is from Avery Design & Print:

    This product will not open my previously created projects on Avery software. This product is useless if you have previous projects and want to print or change them.
