The fastest way to find a template is to go to and type your Avery product number or template number into the white Search Bar at the top center of the page. (Your product and template number can be found on the bottom right of your Avery packaging.) You can also search by product category if you don't have your product number handy.

Note: Many Avery products have similar layouts but are different sizes, so it's important to use the correct template for your product. It's also important to be sure you're using the correct product type for your printer. (Inkjet-only products should only be used in inkjet printers, and laser-only products in laser printers).

If you have Word 2007 or a newer version, follow the instructions below to find Avery templates built in to Microsoft® Word.
Note: Older versions of Word are slightly different.

  1. With your Word document open, go to the top of screen and click Mailings > Labels > Options. (In older versions of Word, the Options setting is located in Tools at the top of the page.)
  2. Select Avery US Letter from the drop-down menu next to Label Vendors. Then scroll to find your Avery product number and click OK.
  3. If you want all your labels to have the same information, type it into the address box and click New Document. If you want different information on each label, click New Document and then proceed to fill in your labels.
  4. If your template looks like a blank page, select Layout > View Gridlines to see the template layout.
  5. If your product number isn't built in to your software, you can download the template instead.

Once you've opened your template and are on the Customize screen, find the Navigator located in the upper right corner. Click on the Edit All tab and make all your formatting, font style and size changes. Then switch to the Edit One tab and click on the individual item you want to edit. That item will appear on your screen for editing. Once you've made changes to that item, click on the next item you want to edit and repeat.

Note: After you've made changes to individual items, if you switch back to the Edit All tab, any changes you make won't apply to those individual items.

You can easily import data from a spreadsheet to create address labels, name badges, inventory labels and more.

First, make sure your data is arranged in columns on your spreadsheet (one column for names, one for addresses, etc.). Be sure this information is on Sheet 1 of your spreadsheet.

Second, open your project in Avery Design & Print Online. Click Import Data on the left of the Customize screen. Then click Browse to find your Excel or CSV file. When your data is displayed, you can deselect any rows you don’t want printed, such as the header row.

Click Next and then double-click or drag and drop data from the Available Fields on the left to the Arrange Fields box on the right, which represents the text box of your item. (You'll be able to format your text in a later step.) Once you’re done arranging your fields, click Next and then click Finish. This will return you to the Customize screen where you can make formatting changes.

Note: Any changes you make will appear on all items unless you switch to the Edit One tab in the Navigator on the right side. A good idea is to make your formatting changes first using Edit All, then switch to Edit One to personalize text and images on individual items. Once you make changes to individual items, they won't be affected by future Edit All changes

In Microsoft® Word click on the Mailings tab at the top of the screen. Click Start Mail Merge, then Step by Step Mail Merge Wizard.

Click on Labels and then click on Next:Starting document.

In the Label Options window, make sure that:

  • Printer Information is set to Page Printers
  • Tray is set to the Default Tray
  • Label Vendor is set to Avery US Letter
Then click on your product number and click on OK. Then click on Next:Select Recipients.

Choose the option to use an existing list and click on Browse. Once you find and open your database file a window will appear asking to select a table. Leave Sheet 1 and click on OK.

Now you should be able to view your Mail Merge Recipients. Scroll through the options to make sure the data is correct and click on OK. Then at the bottom click on Next:Arrange your labels.

Click on More Items and it should open a new window for Insert Merge Field. This is where you will choose which of your columns are merged and in what order. Click on each field and then click on Insert one at a time. For example, here we will need to click on First Name and then click Insert, then click on Last Name and then Insert, and so on. Once every field is added, click on Close.

In the first label, you can click between each field to add spaces, line breaks, or any other characters. For example, we've added spaces between each field, moved the addresses to another line, and a comma between the City and State. Then click on Update All Labels to apply these changes to the entire sheet. You can then click on Next: Preview Your Labels to move to the next step.

On this step you can preview the first sheet. If there are any other spaces, line breaks, or characters you need to add you can click on Previous: Arrange Your Labels to go back to the previous step and make adjustments. If everything looks correct then you can click on Next: Complete The Merge.

Click on Edit Individual Labels to open the Merge to New Document window. Then make sure that All is selected and click on OK. This should then create the fully merged document.

Most Avery products are optimized for printing on either laser or inkjet printers.  We always recommend you use the Avery product designed for your printer type as shown on the product packaging.  If you switch printers frequently, some of our products, including our EcoFriendly line, support printing on both inkjet and laser printers.  

It's simple to check the status of your order. Just log in to your Avery account and select My Orders. You'll see the current status of your pending order(s), as well as the history of your previous orders. Your shipment's tracking number can be found here as well, once your order has shipped.

You may also contact our Customer Care Center at 800-GO-AVERY (1-800- 462-8379) or chat with us online.

Be sure you are using a genuine Avery product – non-Avery products are not optimized for our templates, and are not manufactured to our specifications.

  • Test print. Print first on a sheet of plain paper to determine which direction to feed in your printer and to check your design and alignment.
  • Print actual size (100%) – Never “Fit to Page.” If you’re printing a PDF, make sure the “Fit to Page” box is not checked. Otherwise, your printing will not be printed at the actual size and won’t align properly to the product.
  • Printer settings. After you click Print, click on Properties or Preferences, or look for the “Print using system dialog” option where you’ll find Paper options.
    • For laser printer labels - change the Paper Type to "Labels"
    • For cards - choose "Heavyweight" or "Cardstock."
    If your printer doesn't have a Labels setting under Paper Type, choose "Heavyweight" or "Cardstock" instead.
  • Print adjustment. If your printer is shifting your design by a consistent amount of space, click the Make a Print Adjustment button in Step 4 (Preview & Print) in Avery Design & Print. This tool will allow you to nudge your entire design up, down, left or right by increments you determine. In Microsoft® Word, you can use the Ruler feature to adjust the placement of the rows and columns.

To find your tracking number log in to your Avery account and select My Orders. You'll see your shipment's tracking number, if your order has shipped. You'll also see the current status of any pending order(s) here, as well as the history of your previous orders.
