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.

Adobe, Mac templates are needed for this product

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

As an experienced graphic designer trying to accomplish some simple printed name tag labels, it's clear the Avery software and Microsoft Word versions of the templates for these labels are insufficient. Please develop Adobe Mac software downloadable templates.

      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.

          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.
