Want to know how to print your own labels? It’s really easy! Unless stated otherwise, I recommend using full sheet label paper e.g for the calendar stickers and wrap-around address labels.
You can buy full sheet label paper from:
Worldlabel (Worldwide but expensive shipping to Australia)
Online Labels they even have metallic label paper (which I am dying to try!) (Worldwide but expensive shipping to Australia)
Office Depot (US only)
Amazon (Worldwide but expensive shipping to Australia)
Walmart (US only)
Officeworks (Australia only)
Staples (US and Australia)
Labelsbythesheet (US only)
Sheet Labels (US only)
And of course, Avery.
I have found that the ‘unofficial’ label paper (i.e. anything but Avery) is cheaper and works just the same!
You can also get kraft label paper
Most are compatible with both inkjet and laser printers but be sure to check before purchasing.
Matte sticker paper is easier to write on that Glossy. You can also purchase repositionable sticker paper.
ADDRESS LABEL PAPER
You can buy Avery 5160 Label paper from the Avery website, stores such as Staples and Office Depot also stock Avery 5160 compatible label paper. I purchase Avery 5160 compatible label paper from this Etsy store. You can also get clear address label paper.
1. Always, always, always do a test print (in black and white!) first on plain copy paper as label paper is expensive! (but so worth it)
2. Always put the label paper FACE DOWN in your printer tray so the glossy side you want to print onto is upside down
3. Make sure you select ‘fit to page’ in your printer menu
Refer to the listing description for the recommended Avery label type/template for the product (I am in no way affiliated with the Avery brand).
– Do not select fit to page! make sure ‘actual size’ is selected
– Print onto full-sheet label paper
