To print the names and addresses to address labels, display the list of names and tap the Action button at the bottom-right.
It is possible to print (or email) the list of names itself. To print the names and addresses to labels, tap on Labels on the popup box.
You then get the chance to select some or all of the names to be printed to labels.
The table displayed will show which name/addresses will get printed – those with the Check-marks. When first presented, names that have already been marked as having been mailed, will not have the checkmark. To add a name to the list to be printed, tap on the name. For convenience, you can mark all names for printing by tapping the Select All button, and then, if desired, tap those names you do not require a label for.
Similarly, you can tap the Unselect All button to remove all of the check marks, and then tap the names you do want labels for.
When you have checked the desired name, tap the Print button on the top right.
You will then see the Print Settings screen. Before printing, select the appropriate label format. The label sheets will be either Letter or A4. In the example below, a Letter format 7×2 5162 format has been chosen. The 5162 is the manufacturer’s code for the label. The 7×2 means this format will have 7 rows of labels with 2 labels per row. The important thing is to select the correct page size (A4 or Letter) and the correct rows labels/row choice, so don’t worry if you can not see the actual manufacturer’s code.
There might be names on your list with no address e.g. a work colleague, or close family member. You can still print their name to a label, but often you would not want to do this. If you just want to print labels where the name has an address, then set the Print Names even if address missing switch to OFF.
It is likely that most of your cards will be within your own country. In this case, it is unlikely that you will want to print the country, as part of the address. If you set the Print Country switch is OFF, then no Countries will get printed (whether it is to someone in your own country or overseas). If The Print Country switch is ON, then overseas addresses will have the Country printed.
If you have checked the Except my Country (as above), then addresses within your own country will not have the Country on the address.
Having selected the label format etc., you are ready to print. You can either print directly to the printer, if you have an AirPrint printer, or you can email the address list to yourself so that you can print it via a PC or mac.
Printing using AirPrint
To print directly, tap the AirPrint button. You then just select the printer and hit the print button.
Note: even if you don’t have an AirPrint printer, it might still be possible to print via AirPrint! For example, if you have a non-airprint printer connected to your network, and you use a mac, you can buy an app for the mac called Printopia, which will allow you to use the printer as an air printer. There might be other ways of doing this, and possibly free, but Printopia is not very expensive and is known to work well. For a Windows PC, there are possibly similar solutions. Fingerprint might work in this regards.
Even if AirPrinting directly, it is important that the printer itself does not change the scaling of the information it receives from the app. If it does, the names and addresses will not line up with the labels. For more information, please read this important information about printer settings
Emailing and Printing
If it is not possible to AirPrint, you can email the list and print from a mac or PC.
As before, select the labels format and other settings first.
Then tap the Email button, and select the email address; then send.
The address list will be sent as a pdf file attachment.
Please note that the addresses will be positioned central to each label. Since the addresses will be of different lengths, they will not appear to line up, when viewing the pdf file. This does not matter, but has confused some users who thought there was a problem with the layout. As long as each address is displayed in the correct position for an individual label. then all is fine.
Some users have had problems when printing their labels, finding that the addresses did not line up with the labels. In all cases reported so far, this has been due to a problem with the mac or PC program used to print the pdf file. It is essential that the program used prints the pdf file exactly as it shows on the screen. If the settings are wrong, the computer program might add margins, or scale the output such that the original dimensions are lost. The setting must print actual sixes with no scaling (or scaling set to 100%). For more information, please read the printer settings page.
