Creating and Printing Labels and Business Cards

Designing Business Cards Through a Dialog

Choose File - New - Business Cards to open the Business Cards dialog, which allows you to choose how your business cards will look.

Designing Labels and Business Cards

You can design both labels and business cards through the \<emph\>Labels\</emph\> dialog.

  1. Choose File - New - Labels to open the Labels dialog.

  2. On the \<emph\>Labels\</emph\> tab, under \<emph\>Format\</emph\>, define the label format.

    LibreOffice Writer contains many formats of commercially available sheets for labels, badges, and business cards. You can also add other, user-defined formats.

  3. On the \<emph\>Labels\</emph\> tab, under \<emph\>Inscription\</emph\>, you can choose what you want written on the labels.

    This often involves database fields, so that the labels can be printed with varying content, when sending "Form Letters" for example. It is also possible to have the same text printed on every label.

    Use the \<emph\>Database \</emph\>and \<emph\>Table \</emph\>list boxes to select the database and table from which the data fields are obtained. Click on the arrow button to transfer the selected data field into the inscription area. Press Enter to insert a line break. You can also enter spaces and any other fixed text.

    On the \<emph\>Format\</emph\> tab you can define your own label formats, not covered by the predefined formats. To do this, select "User" from the \<emph\>Type\</emph\> list box. On the \<emph\>Options\</emph\> tab, you can specify whether all labels or only certain ones are to be created.

  4. On the \<emph\>Options\</emph\> tab page, make sure that the \<emph\>Synchronize contents\</emph\> box is selected. If this is selected, a label only has to be entered (on the top left label) and edited once.

  5. Click on \<emph\>New Document\</emph\> to create a new document with the settings you have entered.

  6. As soon as you click on \<emph\>New Document\</emph\>, you will see a small window with the \<emph\>Synchronize Labels\</emph\> button. Enter the first label. When you click on the \<emph\>Synchronize Labels\</emph\> button, the current individual label is copied to all the other labels on the sheet.
