So I bought these mailing labels from Staples. They are Staples brand but as the outside of the package tells me, are compatible and the same as Avery label 5162. When I bring up the template and insert my info everything appears to line up perfectly on the print preview, but when I print them out they are all wrong. The text begins printing before the label starts. I have checked and double checked, it looks like everything should match up. What could I be doing wrong?

any suggestions?

Margins! I did this just last night! And I used the Staples brand, the code said "compatible with Avery Template 5160/8160" and I used the FIRST one, 5160. I still had to adjust the left margin, so depending on what margin you need to adjust. You may need to also go into each label and delete the "paragraph" sign, to make sure the address is centered. I had to do this on every address that had 4 lines. Weird.

Thanks for all your suggestions. I will try to ajust the margins and see if that helps. It looks like its the top margin that is causing me trouble.

Ok, So my next question is, How do I adjust the top margin. I think I need to bring it down a bit, so it starts printing the text on the actual label and not above it?

Are you using MS Word? It could also be a printer setting, sometimes printers have margin settings saved in them too(although i think its mostly laser printers). I would bet its the setting in the software.

My printer at home works fine with any labels (its a bit old) and my newer printer here at work is MUCH newer and doesnt print labels at all. Some of the other printers we have here are new too and they dont either sad.gif

Go to file, page setup, and then select margins. Increase it a bit. My suggestion is to print on blank paper, then put a sheet of the labels in front and check the alignment in front of a lamp or something. At least that way you won't waste all your labels getting the alignment right.

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
