I assume this error is occuring in Microsoft Word.

  1. Create a new document, with a full page of the label you are having trouble printing.
  2. To see the margin settings of your document, go to File > Page Setup (or Page Layout > Margins > Custom Margins for Word 2007).
  3. Click OK on the margins dialog, and Word will check the settings against your currently selected printer. If a margin is set outside the printable area (usually the bottom margin set to zero), you should see the warning message.
  4. Click the Fix button to have Word change the margins
    to match your printer. You should now see the Margins dialog with the new margin settings.
  5. Click OK.
One thing to watch for- on some inkjet printers, the printable area is narrower than the labels. This will cause the labels to shift to the right on the page and be misaligned when you print.
If the labels run off the right edge of the page display, or are misaligned when you print, an extra procedure is needed.
  1. Undo ([Ctrl]+[Z]) the new margin setting, or create a new page from the label template again.
  2. Select the entire table of labels ([Ctrl]+[A]).
  3. Right-click the table, and select Table Properties.
  4. Click the Text wrapping "Around" option, then the Positioning button.
  5. Change the Horizontal position to Center, Relative to Page.
    Uncheck the "Move with text" option. Click OK to the Table Positioning dialog, then click OK to the Table Properties dialog.
  6. Left-click (or press an arrow key) to "deselect" the table, then go into the margins dialog (see above) and allow Word to fix the margin settings again.
With the labels aligned to the page, rather than the margins, the new margin settings should not cause the labels to shift.
Once you have the margins set correctly for your printer, I would save the empty page of labels to use as a "template".

This is not a fault of the printer. The document you are trying to print is wider than A4/Letter.
Return to your document and reduce the size of the margins. Resave it and try printing it again.

When trying to print Avery Labels L7160 the top few labels print within each label 'frame' BUT towards the end of the page the labels are printed further up and therefore are out of the label 'frames' ALSO...


For Word 2007/Word 2010
1- Click on the Office button
2- Select Print then Print again.
3- In the Zoom section make sure 'Scale to paper size' is set to 'A4'
4- Click on the Properties button.
5- Click on the Paper / Quality tab, then click on Advanced.
6- In the Paper/ Output section it has Paper size. To the right you have a drop down menu . Make sure A4 is selected and not letter, then click on OK.

3- There may also be other options in your printing preferences such as 'Print Area', 'Scale to Fit Page Size' or 'Page Margins. These will all need to be set correctly for your design to print 100% e.g. Print Area set to Maximum, Scale to fit Page Size disabled and Page Margins set to Minimized.

Some printers ( for example Epson printers ) have a 'Reduce /Enlarge' facility that defaults to 94% or 97% (instead of 100%). To set this to 100% click the 'Layout' tab and in the 'Reduce/Enlarge' section select 'Custom' you should then be able to change the scaling to 100%.

Using XP, my HP Deskjet 5550 printer allowed me to set margins of 0.5 inches and the document printed correctly. With my new Vista 64-bit OS, I get a message that the margins are outside the printable area...


Try when the message comes up click on print anyway. I have to do this with my printer sometimes and when I click print anyway and do not try to correct it prints fine.

Printing on templates


This is normally set through the page margins within the software you are using not the actual printer settings. MS Word has templates for various Avery labels, but I've found after loading the template you have to fine tune the margins for your printer. Use plain paper to print test pages and hold them over your card stock to check alignment.

The margins of Section 1 are set outside the printable area of the page?


Select "Crop to Page" before printing. Or just print as-is. Most cases it will look okay on your printout.

MY PRINTER DOES NOT LABEL IT'S Pages


What application are you printing from? Basically its the software that handles these features

Try this:

Please try the following:

1. Have your document up on your screen.
2. Click on "INSERT" "PAGE NUMBERS".
3. Select the options you prefer (as header or footer), (right, left, center, inside outside, etc.).
4. Make sure that these page numbers are not outside of the printable area or margin area.

If you are placing the page numbers as a footer:

1. Click on "FILE" "PRINT".
2. Click on "PROPERTIES".
3. Click on the "PAPER" tab.
4. Choose "MAXIMUM".
5. Click on "YES".

This will enlarge your printable area so that you can set your bottom margin as small as .12 inches. This will help in printing the page numbers as a footer.

If this does not resolve your issue, please contact Microsoft for further assistance. This particular issue is software related.

Paper feed


The feed rollers are slipping on the surface of the label, causing the page to load incorrectly. There is no permanent solution at this time. Try one of the following workarounds to correct this issue. Workarounds Workaround 1 Adjust the top margin using Page Setup.
  1. Click File , then Page Setup in the program being used, (accessing Page Setup may vary from program to program. Refer to the Help file for that program).
  2. Adjust the top margin until printing is correct on the label.
Workaround 2 Manually print one sheet at a time. Place one sheet of labels in the input tray at a time, printing only that page. Repeat for all pages of labels needed.

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.
