What kind of labels do I need? Where can I buy them?

You will need Avery 5161 (laser labels) or 8251 (ink jet labels) to print the labels. These labels are 4 inches wide by 1 inch high, 20 to the sheet.

You can find these labels at any office supply store.

What kind of printer do I need?

Adobe Reader will print to virtually any printer, however, you do need to make sure that you purchase the appropriate labels for your printer. If you have an inkjet printer, select Avery 8251 labels, If you have a laser printer, choose Avery 5161 labels.

Troubleshooting and printing problems. How do I fix it?

I can't find the file.
Use the FIND feature of your operating system and search for the file name Auction_sheet_n_label_saveable.pdf".

I can't open the seller sheet.
You do not have the correct version of the FREE Adobe Reader. We recommend you download the latest version. You can get it here.

Advice for common printing problems:

Auction Sheet or Labels appear too small or are shifted
In the print window, turn off the option "Shrink Oversized pages to paper size".

Labels are shifted down the page.
Try printing the labels on plain paper. If they appear correctly, then your printer is not gripping the label material correctly. Clean the feed rollers on your printer and try printing again. Another suggestion is to use the manual feed option on your printer if it has one.

I get a print error when I print the labels.

Check if there was a paper jam. It is possible you may need an updated print driver to print the Acrobat file, but problems like this are rare. Consult the Support Section of Adobe's web site.
