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!

      Being an eighty (80) year old senior citizen I anticipated problems with making a book plate for a gift to our church library. Was I ever surprised. All I had to do was down load the program, type up the book plate, print and voila! a professional looking product was extruded from my printer! Good for me and good for avery! Thank you very much for making my life easier!

            This review is from AVERY How to Use Templates:

            I downloaded a template for MAC so that I could make Business Cards. I had a jpeg image to download to the card. The product lets me download the image once. It does not allow the image to be downloaded for remaining cards.

            The program will not allow me to select the downloaded card to resize or reposition it. It only allows me to select the outline of the card. Once you move that, it does not snap back into position as one of the eight cards.

            Useless product.

                To find my template I just entered the template number from the package (8387) for postcards. It highlighted, then I downloaded the template. It popped into Word. Sadly I had my postcard in adobe pdf and so Word wouldn't take it. Had to change it into a tif. Then adjusted using the Word ruler. Looks really good.
                This saved me time from trying to figure out just how the template would print out.
                I like it and Avery templates again and again.
