I have used these labels in the past for attaching to Christmas cards to send out. The labels come in a distinctive A4 sized yellow box with the Avery name on them. I paid £10.81 on amazon for a pack of 525 labels, which was a perfectly sufficient quantity of labels. Each label works out at just over 0.02p which is unbelievably cheap.
The labels that I purchased were white in colour but I believe they also sell transparent ones. The ink dries very quickly on the Avery labels which is great, as it means you can get your job done quickly and they do not smudge. I have also never had any issues with the labels getting jammed in the printer, making the whole process effortless as you don't spend time un-jamming your printer.
The best way I have found to use the labels is to use the template in Microsoft Word to ensure the labels are printed on properly, however I am aware that there are other ways of printing onto the labels. I have never used any other labels for printing on, so I can't compare them to other brands, but unless they stop selling these, or they become a ridiculous price, I am unlikely to try the other brands.
The labels come in different sizes, but the ones I bought were the 63.5 x 38.1mm ones which had 21 labels on each A4 sheet. These were perfect size for attaching to the Christmas cards.
I will definitely buy these again, however I still have 400 left to use, so won't be needing any soon.
As a PA I have write a few letters, and generally ensure the upkeep of the CEO's files, and this is where Avery has saved my professional life.
I use these labels all the time, and go through so many of them.
I find Avery labels to be the best there is out there, I have also tried 5star and Rajalabel
The labels come in a traditional yellow Avery A4 thin box, and can be stored nicely without taking any space.
Avery labels are usually either white or transparent. I use the transparent one's for Christmas mail out as it looks great with coloured envelopes, as it looks very professional and is very chic.
They are very easy to peel off the sheet (they are quickPEEL) and they don't jam the printer at all. I've used them for 6 years now, and not once has the printer been jammed because of the labels.
It absorbs the ink very quickly and never has any smudges on the paper. The white labels can be run through the printer numerous times and they will not lose the white colour.
To use the labels properly you can either download the templates provided online (make sure to save a blank copy first, otherwise you'll have to download it every time), or if you use Microsoft 2007 you can use the templates already pre loaded in word. Which makes life easy.
They are great value for money at £10.85, however don't pay full price for them at stationary shops, you can buy these anywhere. The best deals can be found online, try ebay or Amazon.
In my work I have to spend a good bit of time writing letters, and then sending them out in the post. I know now-a-days email is what everyone uses, but there's still a lot of 'hard copies' sent out in my place. Maybe we're just a bit slow to become a 'paper free' office!
The address labels we use in work are Avery Labels, and I find them very good. I must admit that I haven't used any other brand to compare them with, but if it ain't broke don't fix it, that's what I always say!
You can download free templates for Microsoft Office to use with the labels, so that all you have to do is type in your addresses into the template, put the labels in your printer, and then hit 'print'!. Couldn't be simpler.
You can use mail-merge (setting up label details automatically in a spreadsheet or database of records, I think) with these labels too.
They come in a umber of different shapes and sizes, so you're bound to get something that fits your labelling requirements. I generally use 21 labels per sheet (7 x 3) for my address labels on envelopes.
You can get either white labels or transparent ones, depending on your preference.
They last for a long time, years, and do not lose their stickyness or colour.
They are available from all good stationery stockists now!
