Everyone I know has an email address, and that saved me on cards, postage, and time. Gift packages that needed to be sent was a different story. That effort is about the same as it was a few hundred years ago. Wrap up a gift in a box, add an address label. Here’s how to do it right.
Snail Mail Lives
If my memory serves me correctly, I’m sure I read somewhere that the US postal service is delivering less mail than a few years ago and blames the internet.
Maybe that’s the case, but it seems as if the FedEx and UPS delivery folks work much later at night each holiday season. And each of those boxes and packages needs an address label.
Enter Address Label Designer Pro, a lengthy name for a relatively simple Mac app that does one thing well. Address labels. Customized address labels. Labels for snail mail.
If you don’t do address labels often, but you’d like a good mix of simplicity, low upfront cost, and some automation and customization, Address Label Designer works. Setup a label, print a single label, print multiple label designs to a sheet of labels, including multiple address to the same sheet.
Drop in a custom logo or image for the label and have that printed, too. It’ll even auto generate labels from Contacts.
Address Label Designer isn’t as comprehensive as the business level apps from BeLight, but it might be all you need.
It handles most of the popular Avery label sheets and lets you view exactly what’s going to be printed before printing. A sheet can also be printed as a PDF.
Again, Address Label Designer is not feature laden, the learning curve is brief, and options are few. But it does labels quickly and easily and it’s priced right.
