Avery Design and Print Online allows you to totally customise your design by adding images and graphics - you can even add them as backgrounds. Other features include adding serial numbers, arched text or QR codes (useful for linking to a map)

Step 4: Design the front of your card

Instructions: Using the tools on the left of the screen you can add text, shapes, images (from the Avery gallery or saved on your PC). You can make each card different by clicking on ‘Edit one’ on the right hand side. If you would like to link to a webpage then add a QR code - QR codes allow smartphones to scan the code and take the user to a predefined web page.

Tip: Want to add a different address for each card? Use mail merge to add the data from your existing spread sheet. Select the textbox and then click mail merge to browse your saved file and apply to card.

Step 5: Design the back of your card

Instructions: Remember Avery Compliment Cards are double sided so don’t forget to design the back too! We have left ours blank but for an invite or thank you card you could add your address to the back

Tip: Add a unique serial number using the option on the tool bar if you are creating a promotional card, money off voucher or even using the invite as a raffle ticket as well.

Step 6: Print your card

Instructions: Once you have designed, print on your inkjet printer. Avery’s Quick and Clean technology makes separating each card super easy with high quality look!
