Hello,
I am launching a little business of pantry labels for kitchen, home, office etc.

The idea is to design the templates in Illustrator and cut it with a cricut machine or silhouette and have all labels with a different text which needs to be updated upon customer's request.

 

However, I have tried doing so and created templates with different layers including one for the text.

 

First template is a full A4 sheet of square labels which in this specific case contains 4 lines of text which sits above one of each other.

I am facing the following issues:

 

- while I update the names it needs to be centered again (tried to align in all ways) no matter what the square moves along with the text 

- it won't center proprely within the square (even if align to object option is used)

 

Any suggestion ?

Shall I use Illustrator and if so, can you please advise how to make it quick and less time consuming ?

Shall I change the application and instead use InDesign (I do not know this app and have to subscibe to it) which if I have to to make my life easier will but If I can avoid it is best.

MANY thanks for your help, ps: english is not my native languague excuse me for mistakes in the sentences

You haven't really made it clear how you've gone about the individual label layout.

 

"The square moves along with the text"??

 

The square that bounds the label should be a separate object, independent of the text (and its alignment). Set a piece of center-aligned point type and center-align it with the square. When you edit, alignment will be maintained.
