Avery Labels # 5267 – When Little Labels Are Needed

Feb 3, 2005
Review by  
Rated a Very Helpful Review

Pros:easy to use labels, templates in MS Word and WordPerfect, jam free, do not smudge

Cons:not the ideal label for a 3-line address unless you don’t mind a small font

The Bottom Line: A great label but not for every use.


Sometimes small labels are necessary, whether for a discrete address label or to fix an error. It was an office error that brought the Avery White Mailing Labels – # 5267 into my life.


Description

These labels came in a cardboard envelope and are for use in laser printers. There are 2000 labels with 80 labels on 25 sheets. The sheets are the size of a regular piece of 8 1/2" x 11" paper. Each label measures 1/2" high x 1 3/4" wide. The labels are matte white, smooth and designed to feed through a printer without jamming, smudging, or leaving adhesive build-up.


My Situation

The company was doing a mailing to potential buyers. Address labels had already been printed and affixed to the envelopes. The envelopes had already been stuffed and sealed. That’s when the person in charge of the mailing realized that the address labels were missing an “Attention” line. Since we didn’t want the mail delivered to the wrong person, the person in charge of this project had to do some quick thinking.

We didn’t want to recreate the address labels with an Attention line added ... it would look sloppy to apply one label over another on the envelope. It would also be wasteful to throw away all the envelopes already labeled. That’s when they turned to me.

“Dawn, can you create a label with an Attention line so that the letters are delivered to the right buyer?” No problem.

I decided how the Attention line should read and found the perfect size label for the job. That’s where these Avery labels enter the crisis.


How to Use the Labels

If you use Microsoft Word or WordPerfect, there are label templates provided in those software programs. For this job, I used Microsoft Word 97, which is the software program at work. I have also used these labels with WordPerfect 8 (another program I use at work). Both programs prepared and printed the labels with ease.

To start, I opened a blank document in Microsoft Word. Then I clicked on “Tools” and “Envelopes and Labels”. (For other versions of MS Word, you might have to click “Letters and Mailings”, then “Envelopes and Labels”.) Next, click the “Labels” tab and select “Options”. Make sure the “Laser and Ink Jet” option is selected, then scroll down the menu of label types to select � - Return Address”. Click “OK”.

For this project, I needed to create a full sheet of labels that all said the same thing. Microsoft Word makes this simple to do. The only drawback to the following method, is that you cannot format the text. After clicking “OK”, the screen changes. In the Address window, type what you wish to appear on the label and then click the “Print” button. The text does not appear on the computer screen. Instead, it goes directly to the printer and prints on the labels. This is a quick easy method.

However, I wanted to bold the text and center it on the label. So after clicking “OK”, I clicked “New Document”. This opens a page that displays the label template for these labels. The cursor is automatically vertically centered on the label. I typed: “Attn: xxxxx Buyer” (the x’s are to protect the identity of our targeted audience). I then bolded and formatted the text. Next, I copied and pasted the text to the other labels in the template. When finished, I clicked “Print”.

The label sheets fit in the printer tray so there is no need to manually feed them. Our office has also successfully used these labels in the photocopier for other projects.

The labels printed out beautifully. The bolded, centered text showed well on the white labels. I handed the labels to the person doing the mass mailing, and she applied the labels to the white envelopes in the lower left corner so that it looked as if this Attention line was meant to appear on the envelopes this way. The addressing mistake was easily corrected.

It’s interesting to note that when using Word Perfect with these labels, that the cursor does not appear vertically centered on the label. In order to vertically center the text, I have to position the cursor on the top horizontal line of the label template, and while holding the mouse button down, drag the line a bit lower. Then when the text is typed, it will appear vertically centered on the label.

The label package features a photo showing a 3-line address on these labels. In order to fit a 3-line address on this label, the font has to be reduced to minuscule size. I experimented and found that a Times New Roman font size 8 comfortably fit three lines of text on these labels. That’s a small font! When MS Office opens the label template, it looks as though a Times New Roman size 10 font will fit on the label; however, when I printed the 3-line address on a plain piece of paper and held it against a sheet of labels, I could see that the size 10 font overflowed the label
space.

If you do not have Microsoft Word or WordPerfect, Avery label templates are included in Avery DesignPro, Miscroft Publisher, Microsoft Works and Broderbund’s Print Shop. You can also go to Avery’s website (www.avery.com) and use Avery Print online to print on these labels. I have not tried to print labels using any of these programs.

Note that even though these labels are advertised as “Jam & Smudge Free”, Avery states in the instructions that these labels are not guaranteed if they are used more than once in a printer.


Purchasing

Our office supply buyer purchased this package of 2000 Avery labels from Staples for $10.49. OfficeMax sells the package of 2000 labels for $9.99 or a box of 8000 labels for $34.99.


Summary

I like Avery labels designed for printers. These Avery White Mailing Labels – # 5267 certainly came in handy when we needed to quickly correct an error. Preparing the labels was simple, and they printed without jamming or smudging. The labels easily peeled off the paper, too.

I hope you have found this review useful.

Enjoy your day,
