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.
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.
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.
Answer: They do work in laser printers from my experience using two kinds of laser printers.
I have a CANON MF4890d which is a black ink laser printer/copier. And by the way is the best printer I ever owned hands down. I also have a color laser printer; HP3600n which after 4 years still puts out awesome color prints.
I read a lot of reviews about this and some were not so flattering, mainly focusing on getting the labels just right in your printer so you don't waste any sheets.
My solution was this: First I made lots of extra copies of the enclosed template (they come in handy for test prints)
Then I downloaded a WORD format file of the template from the Avery site. Did you know you can open a WORD document in PUBLISHER (the software I like to use)? But either way the template is a big help.
One issue I recognized others may have is that if you do not make sure your paper is lined up perfectly in your printer it will not feed perfectly. Take the time to align your paper before printing - and again, working with the templates is a big time and foil paper saver.
Not all products are for everyone and the same goes here. If it's going to work out "perfectly" for you, you should be able to work with your software (WORD / PUBLISHER) and know your printer. It's not hard but like all good things takes time and attention to detail. So take your time.
One last thing. I've been a "Desktop Publisher" for many years and the biggest failure I have seen by other people has to do with storage of special papers. These are no different. All papers a sensitive to light, temperature and especially humidity.Read more ›
