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!

    • Hard To Use

      This review is from AVERY How to Use Templates:

      I got the template to download but i can't get to make one page of labels at a time. In a business where I have to create more than 30 address labels this is a pain.

      Avery needs to hire some adults...

      By judojim

      from berkeley, ca

      This review is from AVERY How to Use Templates:

      So, maybe if they hired some adults to help them with their software, which by the way, doesn't seem to work, is clutzy, and unusable.
      Their software templates used to work okay, but now...fugedaboutit!!!

      Stinks! And used to be SO easy

      By PtheE

          This review is from AVERY How to Use Templates:

          The template won't even download on my Mac.

          It used to be SO easy to do this. Apparently Avery now believes it's more profitable to make customers choose (out of frustration!) their Weprint option. But this customer will never buy their DIY business card products again.

          Surely you can see that you're losing customers because we're unhappy, Avery marketing department decisionmakers! Go back to your old templates . .. Some people will still want you to print for them, and your printable business cards product sales will rise.

          Aggravating

          By Linda

          from Los Angeles

          Pros

            Cons

            • Inefficient

            Best Uses

              This review is from AVERY How to Use Templates:

              Ready Index tabs don't line up with the text I entered on the template I downloaded or, in WordPerfect's labels. I suspect I will end up creating my own template so that the text goes where it should on the table of contents. Frustrating
