To print labels with a 5160 label template, download the template for free at Avery.com, then open it in Microsoft Word or comparable software. You can type information into the labels or add it from a database automatically. When done, select the "print" option from the software program's settings to print out the labels, then save the project if desired, for future use.
The 5160 label template is commonly used for mailing addresses. In Microsoft Word, a list of mailing addresses can be imported and used to fill the labels with information automatically. Avery provides 5160 templates in alternative formats for software such as Adobe Illustrator, Adobe InDesign and Adobe Photoshop. If none of these programs are available, use Avery Design & Print Online.
To import the label template, open Microsoft Word or an Adobe program, click on the File menu, and select Open. Navigate to the drive and folder location of the template, and double-click it. Once the template is open, you can input text manually onto the individual labels in a variety of formats depending on the software. Font, text weight and text size are some of the basic formatting options available. You can also color the text if you are printing the labels with a color printer. Labels can be printed with graphic designs, logos, patterns or photos. Labels can also be printed for use as name tags.
