  1. You have so many different products. How do I find the one that is right for my need?

    1. First you need to know what you want to do with the label. Select the type of Avery label required by its application. Each label pack is colour coded to identify the product use: Mailing Labels (Magenta stripe), Filing Labels (orange stripe), Media Labels (green stripe) and Identification Labels (yellow stripe). 2. Select either laser or inkjet labels, depending on the printer to be used. This technology information is clearly printed in large font as the key information on the pack labels. 3. Use the pack label to select the size and number of labels you require. 4. If you have used Avery products before, the product and software codes might help you to get the same product again. The software and reorder codes are clearly listed on the pack labels for the next label order or print job. The software code also ensures fast and easy finding of templates in Microsoft Word or other software programmes.

  2. What product should I use when labelling the jams I make and give away to my family?

    We recommend using our Durable Heavy Duty Labels whenever you need labels that are more durable than normal paper labels. These labels have a stronger adhesive, so can be used for labelling things that will be refrigerated or frozen – beer, or jam, or pesto – whatever you fancy!

  3. What is the shelf life of your labels?

    This can vary greatly depending on the environmental conditions they have been exposed to (e.g. heat, humidity etc). To achieve optimal results we recommend you use products that have been stored under normal conditions and have been on shelf no longer than approximately 2 years. Life span of a label once applied is much different and again, depending on the environmental conditions and the specific label type, can be up to 10-15 years and above.

  4. What type of label adhesive is used for laser labels?

    Different adhesives are used to enable different functionalities. Our labels have adhesives to achieve permanent application, removable application, durability and environmental friendliness. If you need technical specifications please contact our Consumer Service Centre on 1800 644 353.

  5. Can I use a CD label on a DVD?

    DVDs are much more sensitive than CDs as they store more data on them, and the data is stored much closer together. Imbalanced discs make them unreadable by your CD or DVD player. We recommend that you use a DVD-specific label for your DVDs as the labels are made using a film based material rather than paper, which helps prevent imbalance problems caused by varying moisture content (e.g. if the disc is left in a high heat, or high humidity environment).
