    Hi y'all! Just joined up..

    I use my trusty iPad 1 (soon to be supplemented with an Air) for most of my work these days.

    Does anyone know if there's a program / app for iPad to which I can add all my Contact postal addresses (from scratch if necessary) so that I can print them, in batches or individually, onto address labels, which I can then affix to envelopes - eg for Christmas cards, etc?

    Cheers!

    Hello and welcome to the forum. It's good to "see" you and I hope you enjoy your visits.

    First, some administrivia: I deleted your other post you started today on this same topic. Not only was it off-topic to the thread you posted in, but making more than one post not only fragments the conversation and makes it hard to follow - it's against the forum rules. Please keep any follow-ups, discussion or updates on this topic to this thread; do not start another. Thanks for your understanding.

    For your question, I searched the AppStore for "address labels" and got six hits for iPad apps. Rather than link to them all, here' same screen shot of the results:

    Maybe one of those will do? I didn't check in the iPhone section, so maybe there are more. Hopefully, something will help...

    Hi & welcome to the forum! :) Now, I've not printed mailing labels from the iPad, but might offer a few options for your to explore & test: 1) Pages Templates is available in the App store and is on my iPad 2 - there are label templates which can be brought into Pages - not sure if there is an easy import function - you'll have to look and/or see if others may respond; and 2) Avery Labels - this company offers plenty of label formats and also an app (again check the App store) - I just downloaded the app which is free; allows you to select one of their label formats and does import from 'Contacts' - might be worth looking @ first; NOW, I have not tried to print from this app and it has received mixed reviews @ the store, but may just work for you? Since you are writing from Spain, I'm not sure what label brands are available to you? Good luck and let us know if you find a
