Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
We use labels daily - mailing/shipping, product packaging, and more. I must admit I've never been a loyal Avery customer - sometimes their white labels are slightly higher quality than other brands, but we always seem to find generics that work just as well, for a fraction of the price.

But these new line of products by Avery (print-to-edge, product & mock-up labels) have got us really excited. They look great, they come in great colors, the price points are good, and they have soooo many uses. I hope to see even more colors & choices in the future.

And, I'm a long time fan of the Avery web site - we often use their "Design & Print Online" feature, even if we aren't using Avery brand labels. We tend to use Open Office, Microsoft Office, and Google Docs for our word processing, and none of the label templates seem to work well with those programs. So we use the Avery web site, which is clunky, but layout is straightforward and we usually don't have time or energy to mess around.

So now I'm a much, much bigger fan of Avery - they have both products and a web site we can get excited about. These particular labels are 2.5" diameter (smaller than you might imagine in your head), but work great for gift bags, books & CDs, and things like that. They are high quality, look great, no jams, etc. An all around great product.

Some tips on using these:

-If you are doing a complex design, download the template in advance, make sure it works for you, and/or try to find alternative sources for templates. Our designs are usually quite simple - text + simple logo.

-Run a test print first, then hold it up to the light under your sheet of labels (making sure it matches up).

-The kraft brown background color is dark. We decided only to print in black, to ensure the label is readable.

-Before buying the Avery print-to-edge product labels, make sure you're getting the size you really need. Cut out a 2.5" circle from a piece of cardboard, & hold it up to your product to get a feel for it. I know this sounds silly, but I've heard this feedback from so many people - that the size "sounded" right, but it didn't end up working for them.

Hope this helps - good luck!
