My Word Won't Print Labels

By Todd Bowerman

Microsoft Word was designed with a wide variety of presets and templates that help users print labels, cards and other unique documents. Unfortunately, Word often has difficulty understanding certain proprietary label sizes, and users who wish to print with Avery's popular label paper report compatibility issues or a complete lack of functionality from Word. You can resolve these issues by downloading the correct version of Avery Wizard for your Microsoft Office version.

Visit the Avery Wizard website by following the link provided in Resources.

Verify that you have a version of Office that is compatible with the most recent release of Avery Wizard. As of 2010, Wizard supported Office 2000, XP, 2003, 2007 and 2010 (32-bit).

Click on "Free Download" and enter your registration information into the form.

Click on "Save File" and select your Desktop as the file location.

Double-click on the Avery Wizard icon on your Desktop and follow the on-screen instructions to install and configure the software. Once installation is complete, you should be able to print labels via MS Word.
