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.

I would love to use these templates for my christmas Cards but I cannot find the directions on how to make them work. Avery needs to provide more detailed instructions on how to use them for both mail merges and single labels (such as return addresses). I consider myself a very good user of word/excel, etc but cant for the life of me figure this out.... I am going to just print on blank labels this year. Too bad as product looks promising!

    Great product. Seen a review by someone who obviously wouldn't put their name or location - only whined about not having PDF formatted stuff & that Avery shouldn't have their stuff in "word" b/c that is just for word processing - not making labels or designing things???? Really??? Then you know nothing about word sir b/c it is capable of more designing than PDF formats of any type! PDF is something of the past & is rarely used by anyone anymore -- but everyone uses word for almost anything... & it's design capabilities are endless. Before slamming a company for not using a format that is a thing of the past (PDF) maybe you should get with the times & learn how to use Word & will see it is much easier to use than PDF & has endless capabilities. Avery does a great job of providing these templates for everyone for "FREE" so quit your complaining - maybe you should use something else & pay for it!!??

    Need templates in PDF format

    By J

    from C

    This review is from AVERY How to Use Templates:

    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!

          Very frustrating to use. I figured it out only because I have seen it done by a storekeeper demonstrating it to a patron.
