Avery releases DesignPro for Mac users; Free download



Avery recently unveiled the final version of DesignPro for Mac. You’ll find over 1300 predesigned layouts to that you can use for labels, stationery designing, and printing.

“DesignPro offers Mac users one software program that has the flexibility and creativity to design and print the broad range of Avery products,” said Peta-Gaye Latibeaudiere, Senior Product Manager for Avery Dennison. “We are confident that DesignPro will meet the high quality expectations of Mac users.”

DesignPro is a hefty download weighing in at 262 MB. I have used Avery label software in the past. I was happy to see that many of my favorite features were included in the Mac version. Greeting cards & postcards was some of my favorites, and I was customizing in no time. I’m still able to import personal photos. DesignPro let’s me do this by using iPhoto. Although I’m an Aperture 2.0 user I can easily export my photos to iPhoto and from their import them to Avery DesignPro. If designing your own creations is not your style that’s not a problem you have over 2000 clip art to choose from.


DesignPro also gives you the option to merge data from Address Book or Mail effortlessly so you can address your labels without any problems. You also have the option to import playlists and albums from iTunes. Although this is, a free software application Avery DesignPro didn’t skip on the features. There are many things you can do in DesignPro such as; create business cards, dividers, binder inserts, along with a variety of variety of specialty products like iron on transfers for t-shirts.

Log onto Avery’s website and download your free copy of Avery DesignPro. Avery DesignPro is compatible with Mac OS X Tiger and Leopard.



I was able to download Design Pro and created some great address labels. Once I finished and tried to re-open the application, it would not open. I downloaded the same program 3x but it has stopped working after 5 mn. My computer shows the icons/programs but there is no way to open this a 2nd time. I’m bringing this computer in to Apple for my one on one!!!

I’ve been using a PC version on my old XP computer I’ve now purchased a Mac. If I download the software for Mac can I import my old address files for my Christmas card labels.

Designpro for the MAC doesn’t cut it. I created a zdl label on a PC under XP and MAC running OS.X will not open it.

Hello Gilbert,
I believe I have printed some of the sizes you have mentioned to package bottles, jars, and boxes for my small business. However I’ll check and respond on this thread. I use a lot of labels. :-)

Gilbert Cantlin

The only labels I use are the following sizes:

1/2″ x 1 3/4″
1″ x 2 5/8″
1″ x 4″
2″ x 4″

I used Avery labels for years while I had Microsoft’s Windows operating systems. When I purchased the new Vista system last year, I ran into so many problems that I gave it away and purchased an Apple iMac with the Leopard OS X, Version 10.5.2.

I made that purchase at the end of February. Since then, no one at any Apple stores or tech support, no one at retailers of Avery supplies, no one at all, has been able to tell me if there is a label system that I can surely and safely use for printing the above noted labels.

Can you help me with this unexpected, unbelievable problem. I just can’t imagine, as sophisticated as Apple claims to be, that they have no system, no product, and can give no advice.
