How to Use Templates
We have created templates to help you format your Avery products using Microsoft® Word, Adobe® Illustrator®, Adobe® InDesign® and Adobe® Photoshop.

If you do not have any of these programs, use Avery Design & Print Online.

After you download your Avery template, be sure to remember where you saved the file on your computer and the file name.

Open Microsoft® Word or an Adobe® program for your template and select File > Open to navigate to the drive and folder to open your template.

Use the program’s formatting and printing features to edit and save your template.


Get Adobe Flash player


Tip: For Microsoft® Word users – If the template looks like a blank page, select Table > Show Gridlines to view the template layout. For detailed instructions on Microsoft® Word templates, click here.

Thank you for using Avery templates!

Products are great, should be able to order quickly, If I find something on 1 page, I get lost if trying to get back to it after looking for the appropriate template. Why isn't there an easy direct link? Why do I have to spend time wandering around?
The whole experience makes me not want to shop on your site.
Sorry.

The templates NEED to be provided in PDF format, not just Word! I design labels in Illustrator or InDesign, so a Word template is absolutely no help to me. And I'm pretty sure I'm not the only one designing in other programs that could make good use of a PDF version. Who designs anything in Word, anyways? Word is just for word processing, not design, so why in the world would templates for design only be provided for Word? I would personally never buy Avery labels because I know the templates are only in Word, but I have coworkers bringing me Avery labels. I roll my eyes after they leave my cubicle, then I am forced to create my own work-around just so I can make use of the labels. Rant over. In summary: please, please, PLEASE provide templates in PDF! My coworkers will not stop bringing me Avery labels!

Completely useless

By This product sucks

from Boston

This review is from AVERY How to Use Templates:

I've just wasted the better part of two hours trying to type 9 file folder labels. Nothing I tried has worked- the template document won't print the way it is supposed to. The online tool is unbelievably complicated and DOESN'T Work. What a waste of time.

      Avery template does not match Avery paper

      By parker

      from Sacramento

      This review is from AVERY How to Use Templates:

      I have used Avery for years. Am now using Windows 10 and the Avery 5390 template. When I printed the badges, the perforation at top of the Avery 5390 stock is higher than the first row of badges, and the perforation at the bottom of the stock is lower than the badges. There is only 1 row in the middle that is even close to the perforation. Talked to 2 customer service reps, who both said it was a Microsoft problem. No, Avery, if the template that you designed for Microsoft Word doesn't fit your paper, it's your problem.

        TEMPLATE DOWNLOAD - FAIL

        By Frustrated

        from Fort Wayne, IN

        This review is from AVERY How to Use Templates:

        Cannot download template. Wasted a lot of money on these tabs thinking the template download would be easy (like labels/envelopes, etc.)
