Using Avery Templates

Avery Templates are standardized templates for labels, business cards, and stickers.  These templates are used with paper stock purchased from retail stores.  You will find many Avery Templates available within the program.  If there isn't one in the program though you can make it yourself by following the instructions for Creating a Custom Paper Stock.

Identifying Your Avery Stock

There are two basic pieces of information you need to know in order to pick your Avery stock correctly.  The first is which type of project the stock was made for labels, business cards, stickers, or something else.  The second item you need to know is what your Avery number is.  Your Avery Number is usually printed on the packaging.
