When I print a label, there is a blank white space before and after the printed text. How do I reduce the amount of tape printed before and after the text so as to maximize the label tape available?


you can, change the margins to narrow. you'll decrease the right margin but not the left margin which accdg to my research, is the space needed for the ptouch to print.

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%.

Cannot print avery labels, get message the margins of section 1 are set outside the printable page, or will run thru printer , printing complete get blank page


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".

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.

HP Deskjet F2180 Margins incorrect for label printing


I eventually managed to print my labels one sheet at a time by forcing the label top edge down the page. You can insert one or two lines above the label template and adjust the font size to get the right distance. It took a bit of trial & error but got there in the end. Hope it helps you

Military Shipping Labels


If your not getting an error message I would suspect that the margins have somehow been set beyond the printable area. I don't know what the width on a "Military Shipping Label" is but I've had issues with Zebra label printers printing on the very edges of the labels.

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.

Printing accurately


Hi there within the envelopes and labels print function within MS Word you will be able to set the correct label and sizes. If this doesn't work then adjust the margins.

This problem is nothing to do with your printer as you are sending a command to it and the printer is doing what you told it to do. Check the settings first.

Thanks J
