Print your own finishing touches for customer appreciation gifts

Creating personalized labels, tags, and fabric transfers with Avery products is a convenient solution when you need to quickly customize customer appreciation gifts. Initiate the process by choosing the suitable Avery template that corresponds to the specific product—labels, tags, or fabric transfers—you plan to print on. Simply input the Avery product number on our template finder page to access the appropriate template. If you encounter difficulty finding the product number, this article is a handy reference. You can also contact our Customer Care Team at 1-800-462-8379 or use the chat feature for prompt support.

Following the template selection, pick a design that aligns with the customer gift you’ve chosen. Avery provides a diverse range of professional holiday designs that you can easily customize to fit your business and gift theme.

Once you’ve personalized your design using ADPO, print it. Begin by changing your printer settings to cardstock, heavy weight, or specialty paper to accommodate the thickness of the sheets. Then, set the scale to 100 for precise sizing and alignment of your labels, tags, or fabric transfers. Before printing, conduct a test run on plain paper to confirm the proper sheet direction and alignment. Do this by marking an “X” on a corner to verify the paper feed direction and check for any scale issues or design misalignment in the margins during the test. Adjust printer settings as needed until the output is correct. Finally, print your perfected design on the labels, tags, or fabric transfer product.
