Re: avery laser addressing labels l7160
What software are you using? I use Microsoft Word to print my Avery labels, and quite often have to tweak their templates by simply adjusting my margins on the page. I do a 'select all' and then add one tenth of an inch at a time until the proof sheet looks just right. If the labels are a bit off, you can also adjust the pitch in the label options dialoge.

This can be a little tricky. If you haven't used any of the labels yet, simply put the address in the first label and simply print. The printer will print the address on the first label and all you have to do is remove it and put it in place. Next time you need to make another label, set up the program that you are going to use to print the label and once the "Avery 8168 Inkjet" label is on your screen just move the cursor to the second label (With Corel WordPerfect just hold the ctrl key and hit the Enter key) and print your return label. Using this procedure you can use one sheet of labels without having to print all labels at once or using a new sheet.
Some CD label software allow you to adjust the "overprint" by resizing the image you are printing. If your software doesn't allow you to size your image larger than the label (so it overlaps) try a different program. Look for a setting that allows it to over print. It's not an exact science...you just have to try to make the adjustments you need. There are also different CD/DVD label sheet types where the labels are setup on the sheet differently. maybe a different setup may work better. However, usually Avery is pretty good.
You'll need the actual Avery code for this, or at least the correct measurements. Open up Microsoft Word. Go to 'Tools' and find 'Letters and Mailings' in the list. Then off of that is 'Envelopes and Labels'. Click on that one and a box will pop up. If you click on 'Options'. From here you can find the correct label settings by the code which will be on the Avery pack. If you haven't got the code, you can scroll through the lists and highlight options to see the measurements but this will take you a while. Once you chosen your labels, click on ok. Now you can enter your address in the box and print a whole page of the same address or click on 'New Document' and that will give you a page set out correctly for that label sheet.
open the related word document.
select 1 line above the Text in question, press enter twice.
That way, the text will drop by 2 lines.
try a test page on this, alternatively try using a different label layout, until you get the desired result.
Other than the AveryL7160.
