Question about Canon PIXMA MX860 OFFICE AIO-2.5IN LCD 19.4X17.1X8.9IN All-In-One InkJet Printer

Avery label printing alignment issues. Please Help!

I have a Canon Pixma MX860 AIO. I am trying to print out labels and business cards. Everything looks to be in alignment on the on-screen Avery template in Word, however, when I print using the corresponding Avery labels and card stock, everything is way off. Not just a little - I mean way off.
I have tried to make adjustments to compensate, but the isn't enough to make up the difference.
Can someone please shed some light on this for me.

Many thanks!

I was having the same problem. I was trying to print business cards on 8879 AND 8869 paper, I downloaded templates for Word & Photoshop and I downloaded a wizard for Word. It was aligned perfectly on my screen but every time it printed, it was 1/8 of an inch off.

The solution JSmatney posted of downloading the Avery DesignPro software was the only thing that has actually worked for me! It's not too hard to use. Thanks!!

Mx860 prints too light


Replace your ink cartridges again. Seem like the print heads are busted already. Try returning the cartridges to the seller or ask to have them replaced.

Hi I am trying to print labels. Avery #05161 and business cards Avery8371TM or 5371TM. I am using Microsoft Office and there do not seem to be any relevant numbers. I have gone under labels. Help Thanks


You can use a different template for either the labels or the business cards, just make sure the labels you choose are the same size as the avery 05161 & the business cards are the same paper eg: glossy etc. The other thing you can do is go to avery.com & download the correct templates.

I hope this helps you

How do you type and print Avery labels 74520? I have lost the instructions which came with the labels.


This can be done with settings through your word processing program. Assuming you are using Word:

Microsoft Word 2007
The newest version of Microsoft® Word now includes hundreds of Avery Templates for labels, business cards, dividers and more.

Find Avery Templates by selecting the Mailing tab at the top of the Microsoft® Office Word screen. Just choose Create > Labels > Options > Avery US Letter, then choose your template by selecting the correct Avery Product Code.

Access Pre-Designed Avery Templates that are available from Office Online by selecting the round Office button at the top left of the screen, selecting New and then choosing the Avery product type. Pre-designed templates for Avery business cards, greeting cards, dividers, labels, note cards and postcards are available.

Avery Wizard for Microsoft Office is a free download which inlcudes step-by-step instructions to format Avery labels. Trust this is helpful. :)

In printing properties and printing preferences be sure and tell the printer you're printing labels, it allows more time for the card stock to reach the starting point.

Printing labels setup on the PXMA MX860


Hello,

You don't need to do anything to set the printer up except to tell it you have heavier stock than normal.

Your answer lies in the program you are using to print labels. Please tell me which program you are using and what other office type programs you have on the computer and I will try to give you a viable solution.

Mis-alignment during printing of labels sheets


Solution!! Use "HP premium Plus Photo Paper" for the paper type setting. Works great with Avery labels & card stock as well. (business cards had the same alignment problem)

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.

Can I print a cd on my canon mp510 printer?


You need to download a CD cover creator software. If you also want to print your own CD label stickers (round ones for the disk) you will need also to buy CD avery templates.

Here is the software:

Download Super CD Cover Maker v2.0.0

Cd Cover Label Software Freeware

CD Cover Designer 2.5 {freeware} at Damn Printer
Free CD/DVD Covers Software Downloads

Cd covers Free Download
Easy CD and DVD Cover Creator and Label Maker.
Here instead you can buy cd labels:

Avery Labels, buy Avery office products, Avery CD Labels
