Step 5: Print your card

Instructions: Follow your printer manufacturers guidelines when printing cards, most recommend using the bypass tray as Avery card products are much thicker than paper and require a straight feed path through the printer.

Step 6: Separate and post!

Instructions: You can now carefully separate the cards.  The C32035 product uses Avery Quick&Clean technology which means you can simply bend the cards and 'snap' them apart from each other.  Now simply complete the job by putting into an envelope, apply an Avery address label, stamp and post!
