Help & Tips: Printing

About printing mailing labels...

Since every printer and computer combination is different, printing labels can be tricky. We recommend printing a test page before starting a large print job to make sure things are working for you.

Good stuff to know...

  • Your customized label pages will be downloaded to your computer as a PDF file. You can print then print them immediately, or save them to print at a different time. (Don't wait too long though; this info changes pretty fast....)
  • Your computer will display the PDF using one of several PDF viewers, such as Adobe Reader or Preview. (You can download a free copy of Adobe Reader here.) If you have any problems viewing your labels, let us know right away.)
  • The layout is designed for sheets of 1" by 2 5/8" labels, such as Avery® 5160/8160. Make sure these are correctly loaded into your printer.
  • Use the "Offset" feature to print on a partially used label sheet, by choosing the number of label spaces to skip.
  • Use the "Nudge" feature to move the label text in any direction if the entire page is not lining up correctly (all the labels are too high, for example).
  • If the top of the page prints correctly but the bottom is misaligned, your PDF viewer may be trying to shrink the image to fit within certain margins. Correcting this problem is as easy as turning off the "shrink" feature, but the process for doing this varies depending on the type of computer and browser you are using.
