Tips for Use of the Avery Shipping Label Template
Once the Avery shipping label template has been downloaded from this site there are several tips that will simplify the process of printing the labels.
- First, look at the template to see the fields that are automatically listed on each label. These fields can be populated in two ways. The basic option is to delete the listed fields, and then retype the name and addresses that are needed for each label. This option is recommended when there are a small number of labels that are needed. A second option, which is recommended when there are a large number of labels to be printed, is to use a mail merge tool, which will take data from Excel and populate the fields automatically. Step-by-step instructions are available online for using a mail merge. Whichever option is selected, it is important to save the document frequently so that no information is lost. If necessary, adjust the font size and placement of the name and address so that everything fits properly into each box.
- Second, remove all regular paper from the printer, and insert the pages of Avery labels into the printer, according to printer instructions.
- Third, print the template document to the printer. The labels will print directly onto the paper.
- Finally, remove the label from the printed page and stick it onto an envelope or shipping box.
Use of the Avery shipping label template comes at absolutely no cost, and will make the printing process smooth and efficient.
