The Problem to be Solved
Apple’s Contacts application can easily create address labels, but it’s harder to create a bunch of labels of the SAME address for return address labels. Basically we’re going to replicate your home address card as many times as you have on one sheet of labels, and then print them all on one sheet.
If we only have one card with our address, it looks like this when we try to print our labels:
Select Your Contact Card
We’re going to replicate our home address card 19 times. First select the card.
Copy the Contact
Paste the Contact
Now You have Two Identical Cards
Repeat Until You Have 20 Identical Cards
Select all 20 cards.
Print All 20 on One Sheet
Style = Mailing Labels
Page is set to the exact label type you bought (most show the Avery Standard equivalent)
Note home many labels on on one page – in the example Avery 5161 has 20 labels
Take it Up a Notch And Add a Graphic
Plain text not fancy enough for you? Let’s add some flair!
- Click on Label
- Click on Set next to Image
Select a Tasteful Graphic
Now Your Labels Have Flair!
I highly recommend that you print a test page and hold it up to a light with the labels behind it to ensure your printer is going to align everything perfectly.
