How to Use Templates
We have created both blank and pre-designed templates to help you format your Avery products using Microsoft Word 97 for Windows and all later versions. Avery has the latest technologies and carefully screens all downloadable files for viruses before delivering them to you.

These instructions are for various Internet browsers and various settings within each browser. You may not know which setting is applicable to your machine until you begin the download process. We suggest you print these instructions for easy reference.

Click the Download Button.


Proceed with Download
Two pop-up menus will appear: (1) one will ask you which way to proceed with the download and the second (2) will provide you with additional download instructions.


Save the Template
Save the template the way you normally save all other Microsoft Word documents.

Select the appropriate location and folder so that you can easily find the templates.

Be sure to save the templates in a common location you can easily reference in the future. You may want to create a folder for all your templates.

The default File Name will be the Avery template name.

For example: c_0102_us0_biz_cards_10psht.doc

Feel free to change the name of the template to allow you to more easily reference it.

The default Save as type will be Word Document. This is correct. If Word Document is not the default setting, change the Save as type to Word Document.

Once the template has been saved, close the second small pop-up window that provides you with additional download instructions.

Continue searching for additional templates. Be sure to save each template as you search using the instructions from Step 3.


Personalize Your Template in Microsoft Word

Note: If the template looks like a blank page, the gridlines may not be visible. Go to the Table menu and select Show / Hide Gridlines. The gridlines should be showing in order to view the template.

Template Naming Definitions
The template name is made up of several components. Below are the definitions for the various sections:
Section 1 - Product Category
c) Card Products
d) Divider Products
l) Label Products
b) Binders & Report Cover Products
t) Printable Crafts
e) E-media Label Products
n) Name Badges
k) Binding Supplies
p) Paper Products
Section 2 - Unique Number
This is a unique four-digit number that allows us to keep track of all templates. Each template should have a unique number. For templates that come in "pairs", for example:
Front & Inside - For a greeting card
Front & Back - For a postcard or brochure
Table of Contents & Divider Pages - For Table of Contents dividers
Labels & Divider Pages - For Clear Label dividers
The unique number repeats to allow the components of the template to appear together. The various elements of the template, such as the front or inside, are distinguished in other areas of the name.
