Business Contact Book FAQ

► Can I print mailing labels directly from Business Contact Book?

Yes, you may easily print mailing labels and return address labels, using your existing BCB contacts. Learn how to print mailing labels from BCB. ▲ 

► I have selected 100 contacts from the People list, but mailing labels for only 95 of them were printed.

It could happen if not all of the contacts have address information. If you selected to print address information, mailing labels for contacts without an address will not be printed.

► Is there a way to start printing from the first available label on a partially used sheet of labels? I'm going to print off thirty five one different maling labels on a label sheet with four columns by twenty rows. So, there will be forty five labels left over on the sheet. Is there a way to start next printing from the first available label?

Yes, BCB does support this really useful option for using partly used label sheets. You may easily set the starting position in the Print mailing labels window.
Label are numbered as shown in the example below.

In this case, you should start the next printing from the first available label that is the sixteen down in the second column.

► Does BCB support printing return address labels

► Can I print return address labels using a partially used label sheets?

Normally, printing starts at the first label that is at the top left and goes column by column. However, if you have already printed some of the labels in a sheet, BCB allows you to pick a starting label position by specifying the row and column you want to start with.

► How can I set the font size on mailing labels?

In the Print window, set the Print style to 'mailing labels' or 'return address labels'. The selected font size is display next to the Change Font button.

Change the font size on mailing labels

To change the text size, just press the the Change Font button. To reset the font settings and return to the default system font, click the Default Font button.▲ 

► I selected the font size on the labels to 14 but on some labels it looks smaller. Why does the font size on some labels differ?

As names and addresses lines can have different length, the amount of text to be printed in each label is different. To fit the name and address information, the app automatically changes the font size on a label by label basis. So, the text size on different labels could differ. ▲ 

► I need to print address labels information displaying Last Name first. Unfortunately, it is not possible to do it with Mac Contacts. Can I change the order of the first and last name in mailing labels in BCB?

Yes, BCB is a great solution to this problem. Business Contact Book supports six name formats, so you may easily select the necessary one and, optionally, add prefix and suffix to any name format.

Supported name formats for mailing labels

Supported Name Format:
Full Name
Title + First Name + Last Name
First Name + Last Name
First Name + Middle Name + Last Name
First Name + M + Last Name
Last Name + First Name + Middle Name
Last Name + F + M ▲ 

► Can I print mailing labels in alphabetical order or by postal code?

To print mailing labels in alphabetical order, you need to sort the contacts this way before printing. Unfortunately, the current version of BCB does not allow you to sort contacts by postal code. We are planning to add this option in the next BCB version. ▲ 

► How can I know that BCB supports my label template?

Please check the list of supported label templates. If you can't find your label type in the list, please contact us. ▲ 

► I don't want to add Country to mailing labels.

Here you have two options - 'Do not print' or 'Print except my country'.
You may choose 'Do not print', if all of your recipients are from your country and you don't want to print the country as part of the address. If you are going to print both overseas addresses and address in your country, you should select the 'Except my country' option. In this case only overseas addresses will have the Country information as part of the address. ▲ 

► How can I save mailing labels to print them later?

Business Contact Book allows you to save mailing and return address labels as PDF to print them later. Despite BCB saves a pdf file in the correct output format, check that the print setting in the app you are going to use do not change it. Make sure that your printer scale settings are set to 100% and portrait orientation is selected. ▲ 

► How do I print the same address on a page of labels?

If you want to print a sheet of identical labels, read how to print return address labels. With BCB you may easily print a full page or a certain number of return address labels. ▲ 

► I would like to print name labels for a conference. Unfortunately, I am not able to find the name labels option in BCB.

Printing name labels is not organized as a separate option. To print name labels, highlight the contacts you want to print out and press Cmd+P. In the Print window, set Print style to 'mailing labels' and set 'Address' to 'Do not print'. Aside from the attendee’s name, you may also want to add some additional information such as title, company and department. ▲
