First, I downloaded the Adobe Illustrator template first, and had to call Avery to get assistance. He pointed me to the Word template. Aha. Wish it had been clearer: Maybe one click that you have two choices - Word or AI.

Then the problem was Word. You cannot get very creative with the Word template. You can't layer images, you can't set images where you'd like them.

The solution? I designed my business card in PUBLISHER, and Publisher has a template option, which inclueds the 8869. Then I could get very creative. In fact I could create really nice two-sided cards and they printed beautifully. I'm very happy with my labels, but if I hadn't had Publisher I'd still be fuming.

The solution?

Maybe Avery should make that clearer to people.

I recommend you make your own template. I explain how below.

The cells in the template were all slightly off from the perforation lines on the Avery paper. And because each cell is independent from each other, if you have to make a change, you have to do it eight times. So I spent an hour (and several draft prints) trying to get the page aligned with the perforations. I gave up and made my own template instead and was done in 10 minutes.

If you want to make your own template as well, do the following. If you look at the sheet, the perforation lines create a table that goes to the edge of the page. You are simply creating a table whose lines match the perforation lines on the Avery sheet:
Create a new document
Set all page margins to zero inches
Create a table with five columns and nine rows
Set the size of each row as follows:
- 1st row: .75 inches
- 2nd row: 2 inches
- 3rd: .5 inches
- 4th: 2 inches
- 5th: .5 inches
- 6th: 2
- 7th: .5
- 8th: 2
- 9th: .75
Set the size of each column as follows:
- 1st: .5
- 2nd: 3.5
- 3rd: .5
- 4th: 3.5
- 5th: .5
I found it better to the columns from right to left, and the rows from bottom to top.

I hope this helps. If you know how to work with tables, this will be a snap and save you a lot of headache.

          This review is from AVERY Business Card - Wide, 8 per sheet:

          After finally figuring out how to copy and paste content from one card to another and checking the print preview to be sure every thing fit nicely, the spacing was off and the cards printed wrong. No more Avery for me.

          Good for 1 run

          This review is from AVERY Business Card - Wide, 8 per sheet:

          Starting from scratch, it will print 1 page perfectly. The next pages will be misaligned, even if you close the program and re-open it, it never works again. If I were Avery, I'd be horribly embarrassed to offer this to my customers.

          Terrible Experience

          By Dover

          from Seatte, WA

          This review is from AVERY Business Card - Wide, 8 per sheet:

          Instead of just allowing a simple download of the template, the user is forced to download a program, that loads some garbage on the web browser and then the download, stalls and locks up. Really irritating. Why can't I just download the template word document. Everytime, I encounter Avery products it takes 10 times longer. Next time we are just going to skip Avery and get the cars printed. NOT WORTH THE TIME.
