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.

      • Saves Time

      Cons

        Best Uses

          This review is from Avery Design & Print:

          I used 6this to do a basic mailmerge, and it worked right away. It was faster to use than MS Word, and had fewer problems. The software was basic, but well thought out, and did a perfect job.

            I have used your templates with the business cards for decades. But now when I go do to do the business cards for my daughter, I have spent 2 days trying to get the printing to come out at the size that I made the card. It looks right on the computer but does not print correctly. Nor does it line up correctly while using your product So now I am forced into ordering the business cards from Vista print. When I could have done them a lot cheaper using your product. What has happen to your company?

              • Must Have Adobe

              Best Uses

                This review is from Avery Design & Print:

                It saddens me to see Avery only using Adobe for their Design and Print software. There is other PDF software available that is as good as Adobe without all the bloat. I won't be using this software as I prefer the PDF software I have installed.
