Printing addresses on Christmas envelope labels

  firegamp 16:08 05 Sep 2011

I want to print my Christmas card addresses this year, on peel-off self-stick labels. I have lots of A4 sheets, each with 16 plain labels, 89mm x 36mm. I have two Brother printers - an HL-2035 mono laser and a DCP-385C colour inkjet. Are there any quick-and-easy bog-standard programmes I could use (free or otherwise)? And are there any pitfalls, with laser heat and the sticky substance on labels, for instance? Any advice would be much appreciated. Thanks. firegamp

If you have a word processor such as Microsoft Word it will have an inbuilt facility for printing labels, which may recognise the make of label or give you a facility for setting up your own custom facility.

Hi Firegamp

I use peel- self stick in both inkjet and laser (HP's) without problem.

Yes, if you have MS Word, you can go to Tools, Letters and Mailings, Envelopes and Labels and follow the instructions. (Using Word 2003, so may be slightly different on another version)

I found Aone 28189 Address label to match the height of yours, although the width is slight smaller but you could accommodate this with paying attention to where you place the address when typing (suggest using margins)

Hope this helps Cheers

If you have an 'Office' program then get a free template here: Avery should find anything you need and very easy to use. I use different address labels for my Ebay stuff and return address.

I have been using the free Avery Design Pro for several years now and find it extremely simple and intuitive to use.
