Default word 2013 Labels - addresses overlapping into labels

Hi, I have been using word for about 3 years to print labels via mail merge. Yesterday I did another batch 3 wide and 7 down on A4, and the first line of the top of the addresses were just in the label. Each line below the top of the addresses started to move up vertically until on the bottom line of addresses (line 7) half the address was in the label above and half in the label it should have been in. The box of labels is the same one used for 3 years and I have checked all the label sizes including vertical and horizontal spacing. Can anyone help me with this problem please.

Historically there have been four reasons why labels fail to align correctly:

1. You have added a header/footer to the normal template (rename the normal template)
2. The page size set in the printer properties doesn't match the page size of the label sheet.
3. You have a scaling option set in the zoom section of the print dialog
4. Your printer has poor paper handling. Some printers will slip when faced with label stock and thus are incapable of feeding the label correctly. Cleaning the rollers in the print path may help.

Default Address on labels moving up

Hi Gmajor, thanks for the advice. Scaling solved the problem. Thanks very much.
