How to Choose an Avery Label Template in Word 2010

Avery labels and Microsoft Word 2010 can work together very well when you have the correct label template for the labels that you are trying to print. But finding and downloading the correct label template can be difficult, especially if you find yourself at a website that is not reputable. And while there are instructions on the Avery packaging which point you to Avery’s template site, it is easy to lose the packaging, or not notice the Web address.

Fortunately Microsoft Word 2010 comes pre-installed with templates for many of the more common Avery label products. Our guide below will show you where to find these templates so you can start printing your labels today.
