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.

Train Wreck

By Waltmoe

from Sunnyvale, Ca

This review is from Avery Design & Print:

Spent hours building name tags, file will not save local or on line. Called support, told me to convert images to PNG file. Spent hours making that change, file still will not save. Taking name tags and a shapie pen, writing names on tags and taping onto visitors...disaster

Useless App

This review is from Avery Design & Print:

I need to be able to save the file to other more popular file types, like pdf or word. Otherwise the app is useless for my use

Does NOT work, just opens a blank white screen!

By Buzz

from St. Louis, MO

This review is from Avery Design & Print:

I tried installing Avery's Design & Print software on both my Windows8 machine and my Windows10 machine. It "appears" to have installed on both HOWEVER, when I try to run this application I only get a blank, white window with no buttons, no options, no dialog boxes, no drop-down menues, nothing, NADA and it just sits there like that until I close it. In other words, it does NOT work. A waste of my time.
