I'm trying to print out some address labels from Address Book and am confused by the Avery Standard sizing.

My labels are 99.1x38.1 but I can't find the Avery Standard equivalent... Avery isn't a format i'm familiar with

Can anyone help? A dumb question I know

Check out the Avery site for templates:

Templates & Software | Avery

Avery labels are business and home standard. Normally they can be purchased from suppliers - (Office Depot, Staples, etc). You feed them into your printer by the sheet. The template helps to create the label in the proper size and format. Programs such as Microsoft Word, iWorks Pages, Open Office, all support Avery.

If you don't need anything that sophisticated then you'll just have to more or less figure out the format by trial and error.

Regards.

Huh, I didn't know that Address Book could print labels - that would have probably saved me a few minutes as I hunted for an avery template (to suit my label sizes) for Pages...
