Not Sticky EnoughMar 13, 2010
I use these labels with "Poly Bubble" mailers to ship items. Twice in the last couple of months I've had items returned because the labels came off at some point during shipping. The mailers I'm using are brand new and have a smooth surface; there is no reason an address label shouldn't stick to them. It's possible these labels work better with paper-based envelopes and mailers, but I no longer trust these labels and am in the process of looking for an alternative.

Another great Avery productMar 03, 2010
Perfect - I use Avery labels frequently, saves me some hand cramps and time. :) These work very well with my Brother MFC-5440CN ink jet.

A good product keeps getting better.Jul 21, 2010
By Jerry Saperstein
I've been using Avery labels, including this style, for many years.
Avery caught on to the potential of what was then known as the "micro computer" market at the very beginning and has turned out an amazing variety of labels for a bewildering array of purposes.
Labels are actually reasonably complex products in terms of the technologies they employ, such as the adhesives they employ.
Well, how do you take something as seemingly simple as a 1 x 2-5/8 inch label and make it better? Why not just leave well enough alone and continue with the same style as they started off with so many years ago? Avery doesn't think that way, which is good for us.
Avery redesigned the carrier sheet so peeling off the labels is simple as can be. It used to be that you had to bend the sheet to separate a label from the sheet and then slip a fingernail underneath it to peel it off. Now, Avery has eliminated the paper between the row of the labels and you just bend he carrier a bit and pull off the label. Simple, faster and less frustrating then it used to be.
The labels are designed for ink jet printers and I had no trouble feeding them as single sheets.
There was no spreading or blurring of colored inks.
Avery has long offered design templates to make creating labels a lot easier. Way back when, printers and software were less sophisticated and you really had to know what you were doing to print labels without a lot of waste and hassle. Now just download the template, use it in a major word processing or other application that supports them and you're set to go.
Avery still plays at the top of the label game and this particular style carries on that well deserved honor.

Work great, even with a MacFeb 20, 2011
By Jonathan Birge
First, about the labels themselves: they work very well with ink jet printers, as designed, and fed through reliably with my Canon inkjet. The ink never smudged, and the labels came out perfectly clear. They are easy to peal off, and yet never peeled off when they weren't supposed to, even when I sent sheets through the printer with many of the labels already taken out. So, these are great labels, and I can't come up with a single complaint.
Second, about the software: I have a Mac, so I didn't try the desktop software. However, on their website they have literally thousands of templates that will work with Microsoft office, and even Apple Pages. Much of it is a bit cheezy, but they have some very plain templates, and you can always edit out the pictures. This makes the labels extremely easy to use, as the templates avoid trial-and-error on placement and margins.
All in all, a very nice label solution. One word of caution, however, and this is no fault of Avery and will happen with ANY inkjet product: the ink in inkjets is water soluble. That means if you use these for mail, you really should put transparent packing tape over the label. Probably not worth bothering to do this if you're making return labels, but mail does occasional get wet (neither rain nor sleet nor snow...) and a single drop of water can bleed an address printed on an inkjet.

Great value!Feb 03, 2011
These labels are a great price here compared to buying at the store, almost half the price! I print labels for all my mailings.
