Learn how to fix the most common alignment problems that stop your label templates lining up with your labels.
Welcome to Label Planet's World of How To Videos.
In this video, we explain how to fix label templates that won't line up with your sheets of labels. The video features step by step guides to fixing the four most common types of misalignment that can happen. You can also use these steps to make sure that your label templates print out perfectly by preventing printing problems before they have a chance to appear!
When things go right, a label template should align your designs perfectly with each label on your sheet. There are a number of reasons why templates end up misaligning - and a number of ways that templates can be misaligned. To fix a label template, you need to know what type of misalignment you have, why it is happening, and then you can apply the correct fix as shown in this video.
The video includes four sections; each section takes you through the process of fixing one of the most common types of misaligned label templates. The four types we describe are: the misalignment is the same for every label, the misalignment gets worse moving away from a particular point on the sheet, the misalignment doesn't show an obvious pattern, and the misalignment is worse and opposite in the corners.
Check out Part One here; in Part One, we describe the different types of misalignment that can happen so you can work out what type of misalignment you are seeing and why it is happening.
