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!

I downloaded a template and loaded it into word. I printed the template on a plain sheet of paper first to make sure all margins were correct and printer settings were correct. I also marked the plain sheet of paper to determine how to print label sheet into printer (i.e. Face down, face up, top, bottom). Everything works fine if you print a test sheet of labels on plain paper. This will eliminate many problems and ensure you do not waste the Avery label sheets.

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!

Avery labels 5160

By imageproducer

from reno, nv

This review is from AVERY How to Use Templates:

I have spent an hour trying to download a template for Mac and Photoshop CS4. I have printed Avery labels in years past with no problems. When I download the template from this site and open it, it is not the correct size for 30 labels on a page. Frustrating. Tried ichat and no one responded. I called the 800 phone number and was put on hold for awhile. Finally hung up. Why is this so difficult?

My Label Design

By Linda

from Hagerstown, Maryland

See all my reviews

This review is from AVERY How to Use Templates:

Why can't I find a suitable template for a label that I designed using Microsoft Word designs? I bought a package of Avery labels that just won't fit.

Would like to send you my design, so you can answer what I should use.

      This review is from AVERY How to Use Templates:

      WHY can't I reposition the cursor? It's forcing me to start in the middle of a label - I don't want to do that!

          The Avery Template #6582 downloaded as "squares", not "round circles". I tried it twice and got the same results "squares instead of circles!!! Very unhappy with this product
