I customize Avery Name Badges for any and all events -- from mixers and volunteer events, to big conferences and holiday parties. The ability to carry an event theme through to custom badges is a plus. In additional names and titles, I like including logos, event graphics/colors, team numbers, and event icons to call out leaders, seasoned volunteers, and key staff.

As a designer I do NOT ever design anything in Word. To me a template is something I can bring into any program to use a a guide. This should be a eps or pdf file for that purpose. There should be a choice between one of those options and a Word file.
To get around this, I opened the Word "template", selected all, and turned on the "borders-all". Then I printed the file to a PDF and then brought the PDF in to InDesign to design my labels.

      This review is from AVERY Name Badge Label, 8 per sheet:

      These reviews scared me to death!!! I have in the past had a lot of difficulties with name badges - a different product. But yesterday I had a deadline and needed sticky badges instead of my usual badge holder badges. I went to set these up and saw the reviews and was a nervous nut! Let me tell you - easy as pie. Not sure what everyone is talking about. I picked my product - 88395 - and then picked a completely blank name badge. I added my logo to the top center and then uploaded my spreadsheet for mail merge. I followed the instructions (there is a video) and from start to finish I had 75 name badges printed in about 30 minutes! That never happens to me. People keep mentioning WORD...but I don't know why. When I went to print - it made me save to PDF....so that is what I actually printed from.

      Frustrating

          This review is from AVERY Name Badge Label, 8 per sheet:

          I want to print some text in Portrait on the name badges that are normally Landscape. When I try to Rotate or Flip the text box, the box goes off the edge of the screen and can't be repositioned. Or maybe it can, but after an hour, and a chat with a nice Avery agent, I still can't make it work. I have used Avery templates on Windows 8 with no problem. This new software is way too complicated. I don't want to put cartoon flowers on my label--just print some professional text. I will be looking for alternatives instead of Avery.

              Difficult for all but professional graphic designers. But then they are not the ones who need a template. Not intuitive.

              Horrible waste of money

              By Angry Customer

              from Westminster, Colorado

              This review is from AVERY Name Badge Label, 8 per sheet:

              I will never ever buy Avery labels again. I have spent an hour trying to copy and paste material that I already have. This does not work with Word. Does not work on its own. What a waste of money. Never again.
