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:

    It doesn't work. Doesn't line up with Avery 5881, can't add a second page in MS Word (tried Tab, Ctl-Enter, everything I could think of)

        This template is the worst! I've used it a couple of times and each time it is harder to use! I've used Avery products for over 20 years and I don't know how created this template but they need to be fired! Gave it one star only because you HAVE to!

        Avery should know better

        By Nonsubscriber

        from Canada

        Pros

          Cons

          • Adds The "ask" Bloatware
          • Cheap Marketing Ploy

          Best Uses

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

            You would think that an established company such as Avery would respect its consumer base. There is no respect when they give you "free" templates that come with bloatware -- or any marketing software at all. All I wanted was the template, printed at my cost, and they even insist on my email address, presumably to spam me from this point forward.
