Why do my mailing labels get cut off or are not aligned correctly
Labels are viewed in Adobe Acrobat Reader before they are printed. Adobe Acrobat Reader provides many options to resize your printed output (e.g. shrink to printable area) which may be desirable in certain cases. However, this setting, if left at any other selection besides None, will override the specific margins needed to successfully print labels in the correct location.
When selecting to print your labels, always make sure that the Page Scaling drop-down selection is set to None. See “Settings for mailing labels”.
