I’m pretty tech-savvy but I am about to throw something. I am attempting to print labels – these – and I downloaded the template, etc etc, designed em, and hit print on my sample sheet. They were cut off at the bottom, and the side! I can obviously use print preview to check it out, but to make sure they align properly with the sticker sheets, I held the print sample up to the sticker sheets to see. I don’t know how else to check.
I don’t know how to fix the margins without wasting all my ink printing test sheets over, and over, and over..but I cannot return them, because I chucked the receipt (I know, I know..).
I’m using them on goodie bags for our candy buffet.
Also – I have a mac, but I don’t think that matters. I use Microsoft Word.

Sorry, charlie, but the only way I’d know to do this is to keep testing it out by printing on blank paper and holding it up behind the label sheet, which it sounds like you’re already doing.
I suppose you could try fiddling with the label settings in Word. Maybe try measuring on the label sheet EXACTLY where you want the text to fall, then use those measurements to tinker with the label settings in Word?

I found when I was printing my stickers for my cupcake picks that printing on the practice template was always off. I photocopy the template a bunch of times and was losing my mind over it. Then I figured “screw it” and just printed on a sticker sheet and it worked out perfectly (well a hair off perfect, but good enough). I think the thickness of the stickers vs the practice paper sort of messes it up. Is there a “centre print” sort of button/option? Maybe that’s why it’s way off on the side and bottom? Make a few more copies of your practice template!
