Looking for old Avery Software?

Here's what to do next

Avery released our first label-creator software back in 1990! Since then we have been constantly innovating they ways in which people can design their labels or stickers and have launched various software offerings over the years.

Because we are always trying to improve your experience when designing your Avery products, over time we need to retire older software in favour of our latest development. In most cases, we are able to help you convert any old projects you have created on your old software to be compatible with Design & Print online.

Read on to find out what's happened to your old software and what you can do next:

Avery's free Design & Print template software is the easiest and most creative way to design your Avery printable products.
Avery Design & Print Desktop

Avery Design & Print Desktop

If you have already downloaded our Desktop application, you may want to think about switching to our Online version. Unfortunately, we are no longer offering a Design & Print download to new users and we will not be able to support the offline version after 2019.

Don't worry - any designs you created using Desktop App can still be opened in Avery Design & Print Online, even if they are saved on your computer. And, if you have previously saved your projects to an Avery Account, you will see them all online already!

If you liked the ease of having an icon on your computer’s desktop that opened directly into the software, here’s how to create a desktop icon for Design & Print online. 

If you have any questions about your Design & Print Desktop app, or would like to talk about our Online software, please contact our Consumer Support Team for free on 0800 80 50 20 or email [email protected]

Avery Design Pro Software

Avery DesignPro

Avery launched our first version of Design Pro in 2001, first with the .zdp extension, changing to .zdl in 2005 (.cmdx for Macs).

This software is still going strong on many users' computers, but we are often contacted by people when they get a new computer who find they are no longer able to install DesignPro on their new machine.

At the moment, we are able to convert the majority .zdl files to our new .avery format, which works with our free software; Design & Print Online. 

If you have old .zdl  or .cmdx projects you would like to continue to use please contact our Customer Service team by emailing:

Lifestyle - Software - Wizard

Avery Wizard

Avery have worked in partnership with Microsoft¬ģ for over 30 years to help you create the perfect labels. You can find all Avery product templates¬†within Microsoft¬ģ Word¬ģ itself, or you can download individual blank templates from our website.

As all of our templates already inside Word¬ģ, and¬† with Design & Print offering an easier step-by-step approach to label creation, we retired the Avery Wizard for Microsoft¬ģ plug-in after MS Office 2013.

If you prefer using Word templates to create your labels, please find your Avery product's Word Template. Alternatively, start Design & Print Online to create your labels following the easy steps.

Retired Avery Tablet App

Avery Design & Print Tablet App

Avery have had a stand alone Tablet App version of Design & Print for the last few years.

The good news is, our latest version of Design & Print is now touch compatible, so it is no longer necessary to download a separate application. We have now stopped supporting the Tablet App, and have removed it from App stores. 

To continue to use Design & Print on your tablet, simply navigate to Design & Print from the Avery Website or click: Open Design & Print from your Tablet or Mobile phone.
