I am trying to print single column continuos form lables (Avery 4013) using MS Word label printing option on the 320 turbo and the printer head will only start printing toward the center of the platen. This would be a simple fix by alligning the labels in the center of the platen but the Okidata printer will not allow you to do this is wants the labels alligned left. I can't get MS Word to print the labels in this alignment using the Avery template for 4013

You will have to use software to make the labels...like Microsoft Office Word, Open office Writer, or Microsoft Works. In MS Office Word (2003) go to tools->letters and mailings -> envelope and lables. Create the label you need.
If you use open office, go to File->New->Labels and create the label you need.
After which, you put the paper in the printer and print them out. May want to check out the size so you make sure it prints correctly.
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%.
you may need to use some free software that is available for 10.4 and 10.5 users. produced by avery it is the DESIGN PRO available for download at
also available for PC
a bit awkward to learn, it does the advertised job
It can be set from more then one place. In MS Word you would go into the tools setting then choose the envelope drop down, select labels and in the options for the label you choose the format as an Avery Equivalent. That is where you can tell MS Word which tray to pull from. Also in the printer properties, under advanced options you can designate what type of paper is in each tray. Good Luck
Hi nwillett, Yes and no, sorry if that doesn't make much sense. For years Minolta recommended Avery labels, but these days they recomment labels manufactured by Howard Smith Papers, their website is http://www.hspg.com/ The thing with labels is always to use the one your copier service company suggests. Otherwise they'll invalidate you contract and you'll be liable for callouts and repairs caused by using Avery labels. However, Avery labels are good and I have experienced very few problems with them I pressume you using the lables in the correct orientation and also using the manual bypass to feed them.

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.
what printer? do you have labelling software installed? or are you using just standard word processing?
you may want to get avery label software. it's specifically used for those types of uses (though you don't need to use their labels as long as the labels are using a similar layout).
you can find the software at most office supplies.
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.
