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!

Do not waste your time

By KMC

Pros

  • Easy To Set Up

Cons

  • Hard To Use
  • Inefficient
  • Unreliable

Best Uses

    This review is from AVERY How to Use Templates:

    As an independent beauty contractor, I bough these labels to put on my samples hoping it would save me time and money. I see now why they offer the option for them to print and ship. I wasted FIVE sheets of labels because they would not print aligned to the labels. I even had my husband take them to work and try. He was not successful. I bought 1" round #6450 and there is no template in word for this size. Very frustrating!!

        I spent a lot of money on cards and this products just printed half. It
        was so hard to use I spent 4 hours trying to design a label and it took 1 minute to make me a screaming mess. I HATE THIS PRODUCT.

        • Quality Construction

        Best Uses

          This review is from AVERY How to Use Templates:

          On the clear label Index Maker Dividers, the inside "border" with the rounded edges prints making the label look dirty after it is applied. Either take off the inside rounded "border" and let the cell border be a guide for alignment since that is easy to change for preference or have no alignment guide; or make it wider so that it looks like it is suppose to be there.

          Note: Bought them two years ago, so may have made the appropriate changes by now.

          Great Video!

          Give us the specs for your products!

              This review is from AVERY How to Use Templates:

              Why don't you just put the specifications for the different labels online or on the packaging, so that when I find a label I want to use, but the template isn't in my Third Party Product (WordPerfect), I can enter it without the use of a ruler?
              I can't speak for products other than WordPerfect (HATE MS Word), but in WordPerfect, it's easy to add a template, and you can even name it, "Avery 22827 - Removable Durable Rectangular Labels." Go to Format, then Labels, choose Create on the right side of the pop-up box, then you enter Label Size - Width and Height (printed on the packaging), Labels per Page - Columns and Rows (you can see this on the packaging as well). Then you need more info, not provided by Avery. You need The Top Left Label - Top Edge and Left Edge measurements, Space Between Labels - Columns and Rows, and if there are Label Margins - Left, Right, Top and Bottom. Click OK, and you're done! It would be so much easier if one didn't need a ruler to get the measurements to input.
