Default Address labels from mobile phone contacts

Every year I think I should make address labels for my Christmas cards. And every year I can’t be bothered setting up a file and typing in all the addresses (probably incorrectly 😂😂😂). However this year I found this awesome app, called ‘AddressLabels’, in the App Store. I love it! It is easy to use and it pulls the information from the contacts on your phone. You can print labels, or for about $1 more you can print directly onto envelopes, which is what I did. Just thought some of you might be interested in this. Not only is it very easy to use but has features such as picture icons that can be included, a check-off to indicate cards have been sent, and a few other well-thought out features.

I export mine from my gmail contacts - you can add people to a Christmas group so it doesn't export all contacts and then it's two seconds to print!

Some of the steps might have changed but it's super easy.

Thanks! Great video, had not seen it before. For those who don’t have Excel (me😄) the app I found is really good, quick & simple, too. Works very much the same as your method.

I have excel so I am going to bookmark that vid. Thanks Lydia.
I would have to learn how to use merge and label printing too...lol.

But this other thing for the phone sounds great for people who do that. Thanks!

If you have an Excel or Numbers database: I have used AVERY.COM for years. It’s soooo easy and the site has tons of graphics. You can save your designs, too. Just export your file to your desktop as a csv file and you are good to go.

My contact list is far too big to sort, so I keep a Christmas list in Numbers. The list rarely changes so it’s not any work at all.

Yes! Avery.com was my choice this year, and I was so glad I did. It's the first year I switched to using printed labels. I had resisted it as being too impersonal, but having the labels definitely has some benefits.

1-Once the info is entered, it can be saved online with Avery, and it will be easy enough to edit changes, additions, and deletions each year.

2-I used to get a bit loopy writing out so many addresses along with the actual greetings . There was at least one time a card got returned because of my carelessness. Now I can concentrate my efforts on what gets written inside the card.

3-I always have had a fear of accidentally sending someone two Christmas cards, but having the labels assures that won't happen.

4-My handwriting can be a challenge even for me to read; so I'm making it much easier on the post office.

5-I have used Avery.com for years to make our return address labels, and Avery has all sorts of options for adding clip art holiday looks to the labels. I also made some round labels with "Made by [my name]" to use on the back of dark cardstock cards. I use printed removable circle labels in my planner: "Mail greeting card", "Water geraniums", "Go to post office", and so on.
