New to labels


G

Guest

Hello,

I bought A4 size address labels (Avery J1862). Inserted this correctly into
the printer.

I went onto the letters and labels and clicked on the labels
tab>Options>chose the correct label (Avery J1862)>New Document. Typed my
address in (16 labels altogether).

One problem, it was printed all wrong. It wasn't aligned correctly. The
first two labels turned out perfect but the rest shifted upwards.

What did i do wrong? Please tell me. Very desperate to get this to work!
Thanks

Hi Missy!
I normally do so:
First I pick labels and adresses, then in that window i choose the lable
size, then I pick new document. Opens document with empty labels. If I have
several labels to write, not the same one, I fill these labels here. And it
works well.

Ulla,

Yes I have done what you have done. But it still doesnt work right. I dont
understand. Is it my printer settings. I know I have selected the correct
label in MS Word 2003.

Any ideas anyone? I wasted one sheet of labels already because it printed
wrong.

I've struggled with the same problem for a while. It all started when
I applied the latest upgrade to Office. The preset Avery labels worked
OK before as did creating labels to match the measured size. Now I
have to create slightly larger custom labels to get the alignment
correct. My stock labels have a 3.4 cms vertical pitch but I have to
set it to 3.6 cms to get the alignment correct.

Some printers are very poor at label handling. Print on plain paper and hold
the result over the labels. Does that align? If so there's not much you can
do about it. If not,. then check the print dialog to ensure that the printer
and the document are using the same size paper and that there is no scaling
option set.

Hey,

Thanks for that Steve. I will give it a go and let you know if I discover
more problems with it!

I've struggled with that problem a lot. Finally fixed it by making changes 2
settings.
In Word, go to Tools\Options\Print
Uncheck Allow A4\Letter resizing. OK
From the desktop (not from Word), go to Settings \ Printers & Faxes,
right-click the printer name or icon and click Properties. The location of
this setting will depend on your particular printer - you need to find a
setting for "Fit to Page" - try the various tabs on the printing preferences
dialog. If you printer has such a setting, uncheck "Print document on" and
type 100 in the % of Normal Size field.
Hope this works!
