DesignPro Retirement

DesignPro has been retired and replaced by our popular Avery Design & Print. You can still use the same great features you had in DesignPro, including mail merge, QR codes, sequential numbers, curved text and special shapes.

With Avery Design & Print Online you can:
  • Create a new project in just a few simple steps—select a blank or pre-designed template, personalize your text, add images and adjust colors.
  • Personalize your Avery labels, business cards, dividers, name badges and more.
  • Use images from your computer or choose from the Avery gallery.
  • Easily change colors and fonts, even use your system fonts.
  • Save or open projects with a free Avery account for access anywhere.

Start Designing

If you need to open existing DesignPro projects (.zdl files), you can download Avery Design & Print software to convert your files. This software will be retired soon, so should only be used to convert files. Use Avery Design & Print Online, as it is our most updated software

  1. Download Avery Design & Print
  2. Go to Open a Saved Project and load your DesignPro project (.zdl file) from your computer.
  3. After the project opens in Avery Design & Print, save the project to your computer as a .avery file
  4. Go to and select Upload Project to open your .avery file
  5. Save the project to your online Avery account

*Please be aware that Because DesignPro files are from a retired software program, we can’t guarantee they will open properly in the new software. You might need to adjust the design if it changes in the conversion process. If you have trouble opening your projects, please contact our Consumer Care Center and we can help walk you through the process.
