In 1935, a wonderful concept, a few spare parts, and a $100 loan started the Avery story. Ray Stanton "Stan" Avery invented the first self-adhesive labels at that time, and his company was founded with a little sum of money from his fiancee.

His practical ingenuity resulted in 18 patents and the founding of Avery Adhesives, a company that would go on to revolutionize the way brands and businesses transmit information. When Avery Adhesive Label Corporation was formed in 1946, the name was changed to Avery Adhesive Label Corporation. After a few additional name changes, the company united with Dennison Manufacturing to form Avery Dennison in 1990.

CCL Industries Inc., a global leader in specialty label and packaging solutions for enterprises, consumers, and small businesses purchased Avery Dennison's Office and Consumer Products division in 2013 and renamed it Avery Products Corporation, a publicly reportable operating segment. CCL has more than 20,000 devoted people and 168 state-of-the-art production facilities in 40 countries, with corporate offices in Toronto, Canada, and Framingham, Massachusetts.

Today, their mission is to supply high-quality, long-lasting products to their clients both online and in shops. Avery offers everyday, useful products for your business, home, and office, from a large assortment of blank and custom printed labels to design software, binders, and dividers.

How To Print Labels From A PDF File

Portable Document Format (PDF) files can be opened, viewed, printed, and transmitted by anyone with a PDF reader, regardless of platform. You can easily open the PDF file and print its contents on your desktop or commercial printer, from letters to labels. All you need to print labels saved in a PDF file is label stock that matches the size of the labels stored in the PDF file. Print the labels on adhesive paper if you are unsure of the label size.

  • Load your printer with the label stock or adhesive paper.
  • Launch Adobe Acrobat Reader or a similar PDF reader application.
  • Click "File," then "Open." Go to the directory where the labels PDF file is located. To open the file, double-click on its name.
  • Click "File," then "Print."
  • To print a test page of the labels file, click the circle next to "Current page." "OK" will be displayed.
  • Examine the test page to see if the labels are properly fitting onto the label stock or the condition of the labels on the adhesive paper. Adjust the label stock or adhesive paper in your printer if the labels are twisted.
  • To print the entire label PDF file, click the circle next to "All." "OK" will be displayed.
  • If using adhesive paper, let the labels dry for one to two minutes before peeling them off the label stock or cutting them apart with a hand-held or commercial paper cutter.
