Don't be fooled by the lower pricing of the off-brands that say "compare to Avery" on their packaging. The differences between the actual Avery brand and the off-brands are astounding. I have found that the off-brands have inconsistency in the placement of the perforations, causing my printing to be off line on about half of the sheets. Also, the perforations on the Avery brand are much higher quality and result in a clean edge after tearing (which looks much more professional). Stick with what works.
I don't even own a laser printer. I use a basic H-P Ink Jet. So far, I haven't employed any of the versatile design templates - I just put my message on the first, clear white background. I center it - each line stacked neatly on top of the next. If I want info on both sides I just put it through the printer a second time (remember which side is "heads up") Say you have a brief message that you'd like 20 or 30 people to have in hand. The template makes it easy-peasy lemon squeezy.
Luckily I printed things out on paper first and marked all the edges against the template. I've worked with Avery products for many years and in most cases ... the templates are Spot On. The 8374 template in Word has incorrect margin settings for the magnet sheets. The template has top (.5"), left (.84"), right (.31"), and bottom (.42"). The actual magnet sheets have margins of (.5") for top and bottom and (.75") for the sides. Once I changed the Word template margins to .5 and .75 respectively -- this worked like a champ!!!!!
There isn't a whole lot that one can review on business cards but Avery's are as about as good you can get. I've not seen one better. The perforations are just that making separation easy. The quality of the parer is top notch for home printing.
