How to Insert a PDF into an Avery Template

By Bennett Gavrish

You can design sets of envelopes and labels on your computer using Microsoft Word or one of the Adobe Creative Suite applications, including Adobe Illustrator, Adobe Photoshop and Adobe InDesign. When you can choose the type of Avery paper you are using, the application automatically adjusts the document's layout appropriately. After that, you can fill in each label with custom text and insert content from an image or PDF.
