How do I print my labels?
You will need to use a template, which is a file that shows the layout of the labels on your A4 sheet. You can download a template from our Template Section, use a compatible template that is already set up in your software (if one is available), or set up your own template using the measurements from your label sheets. Our templates are either Word templates (for use with word processing software such as Word, Pages, LibreOffice etc) or PDF templates (for use with graphics packages such as InDesign, Photoshop etc).
We recommend designing the top left label first and then copying and pasting this design into the rest of the labels (this will save you some time and ensures that all of your labels are the same).
Once you have designed your template, you should do a test print onto blank paper and hold this against a sheet of your labels to confirm that the alignment is correct (and make any necessary amendments if it is not). Next you should load your labels into the media bypass tray of your printer (if it has one) and take a look through your printer’s properties to ensure that it is correctly set up for printing onto labels (e.g. it is set to an A4 page size and a specific “Labels” or “Heavy Paper” print setting). You can also consult your printer’s manual to see if it offers specific advice for printing labels using that particular model.
We have also put together a Guide To Designing & Printing Labels.
