These labels work great; I used them with Adobe Illustrator (and the online templates therefor) and had no problems. However, there is a regular 8.5x11 piece of paper in the box with the labels with "label outlines" to use as a test, and, for whatever reason, THAT did not conform well to the template. So when I did a trial run it was rather disappointing, but I just said, "Screw it." And printed a (partial) sheet of labels, which came out perfect. Not sure why the trivial components of the package would be the least well implemented, but be warned. That said, the final product was great.

You'll also want to use bold text on these, since the bold labels I made look MUCH better and are MUCH more readable than the more stylized, thin fonts I tried out.

Color: Gold Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
These are very reminiscent of personalized quality labels available through mail-order. I was really excited to try them and was expecting professional results, as is the case with most Avery labels.

Unfortunately, the instructions inside the packaging (the outer packaging does not declare this) reveal that these generally won't work with black ink. The instruction sheet makes such declarations for various printers as: "Use color ink cartridge only." "Use any color but black." Black ink, which is what my printer has, sits on top of the labels and doesn't soak in. It eventually dries, but the text dries a lot thinner than intended, isn't very legible, scrapes off, and isn't color-fast. For anyone who just uses black ink cartridges, I recommend choosing another Avery label.

Using someone else's quality printer, one with archival and color inks, I printed out sheets using dark blue ink. The ink dried and the results looked professional, but the ink also scraped off, especially in any large print areas (thin printing is more difficult to scrape off), and isn't color-fast. If you have a high-quality color printer and want to use the labels, here are some things I learned from the instructions and through trial and error: Use a dark color, but not the black ink cartridge. Choose fonts and images with thin lines (they seem to be more difficult to chip off). Let the ink dry for a few days prior to use. Finally, if you want added security when shipping, place tape over each finished label.

I have used these for shipping purposes after putting tape over the label, but wouldn't use them as-is when shipping mail or packages, due to the lack of permanence. Non-archival-quality, temporary craft use is a possibility, however, such as to/from gift-wrap labels. They really are pretty labels, but the success of printing on them will depend greatly on each individual printer.

I was afraid the ink would smudge on the foil but it doesn't! My labels turned out beautifully. They look like they were professionally printed.

We're not using this label as a return address label, but as a package seal with our logo. Takes ink well, looks great.

Color: Gold Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
Overall I am pleased with the Avery Address Gold Foil for Inkjets. The gold foil look is perfect for applications where you want something snazzier than a standard white paper label; for example I expect these will be used as return address labels for my family's Christmas cards this year. And Avery provides templates which make printing from common applications such as Microsoft Word a breeze.

My only issue with these labels is that with my printer (Canon Pixma MP560) using OEM ink, smudging is an issue. If you touch the labels immediately after printing they will be ruined. Even after allowing the labels to sit for 30 minutes touching a moist finger to the label will smear it severely. Now hopefully this won't happen too often in regular use, so for most purposes the Avery Gold Foil labels are an acceptable choice - if you are careful with them.

Color: Gold Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
These are perfect return mailing labels. They adhere well to the envelope, ink from my inkjet printer transferred beautifully to each label, and of course the metallic gold color looks really great - especially when sending out specialty cards or announcements that you just want to have a more sophisticated look. Good luck however if you would like to simply write on these (maybe for file folders for organization, etc.) as ball point ink don't really work despite how hard you press and markers smear. If you purchase these specifically for your return mailing labels, you won't be disappointed.

I think my laser printer does a better job than the inkjet. The ink doesn't stay very well when it comes off the inkjet. I used them on my red wedding invitation envelops. The gold foil labels do stand out and they gave an elegant look, too.

These labels REALLY look good. The gold tone is perfect and isn't over-shiny and cheap looking. For years I've been using these gold foil labels for different things: for return address labels on Christmas and holiday cards, for information labels on the bottled honey we produce, and for product labels on other products we create.

They are easy to print and the lettering is permanent. I've never had a problem with smudging or the lettering wiping off. Other reviewers have mentioned smudging, but we don't have that problem. We use a Canon inkjet printer and the labels are printed in the evening and used the next day - maybe it's the "dry time" that's important. Either way, we've NEVER had a smudging problem. Also, the Avery-supplied 8987 template is accurate and aligns perfectly and is easy to use.

Physically, they are very permanent. Once they are applied they stay stuck forever and they seem to be waterproof. They've gotten wet with no ill effects.

I've used two other brands of gold foil labels including the house brand from a big-box office store and was disappointed in the quality and the way they printed (the inks didn't adhere to the label very well and smudged) so I was very, very happy to find these Avery labels. I wish I had found them sooner.
