When creating mailing labels, the print settings must be correct before sending the labels to the printer. If not, the labels will not format correctly when printed. The following example is a guideline for all mailing labels, but are more specific to Avery 5160 Mailing labels.

Example:

  1. Acrobat Page Scaling set to none
  2. Font Size: 12
  3. Line Height: 10
  4. Page Left Margin: 0.5"
  5. Page Top Margin: 0.5"
  6. Label Width is 2.75"
  7. Label Height is 1"
  8. 3 columns and 10 rows
  9. No spaces between rows and columns
  10. Vertical and horizontal padding: 0.5"
  11. Depending on the type of font you use, you may have to adjust the margins to fit your text.

Note: If you are still having issues when printing the labels on 5160 sheets, then you may need to adjust the "Page Scaling" from the Print Options when printing from Adobe Reader.  Using "None" for the "Page Scaling" usually works best.  Use the Adobe "Help" and search for the word "Scaling" for more assistance when using Adobe Reader.
