HP LaserJet Printers - Printing on Avery 5160 Labels when Text is not Properly Aligned

ISSUE: Text may not be properly aligned in the label when printing Avery labels from MS Word or WordPerfect . The text is either to the left or towards the top.
SOLUTION: The resolution is to download the specific template for this particular label.
  1. Go to the Avery website at www.avery.com Non-HP site and find, download and install the template using the instructions below.
    NOTE: The link above will take you outside the Hewlett-Packard Web site. HP does not control and is not responsible for information outside of the HP Web site.
  2. Highlight the Software Tab and select Blank Template Library .

  3. Type in the Avery label number under Search by Product Number box (i.e., 5160).

  4. Click the Address Label link.

  5. Click the Download Template button.

  6. Click Open and a document opens up with the label.

  7. If there are no lines differentiating each label, click Table tab and then click Show Gridlines .

  8. Enter the text for the labels in each of the individual labels.

  9. Print the document.

  10. If there are still margin problems, change it under File, Page Setup .

  11. Once the label is printed with the correct settings, Save that document and use the same when printing next label.

CAUSE: This issue is most likely caused by incorrect settings loaded into MS Word or WordPerfect.
