    Boy do I feel like an idiot. I wanted to use Address Book to print labels for Christmas card labels last year and didn’t see the option for labels.

    But a question: Because of the way address book works, I often have two different cards for a married couple so that I can track both birthdays and their separate cell phone/work phone numbers. But this presents a problem when creating labels because it means I generate two labels, which is not needed. I instead want one label for the couple.

    I have created separate cards for couples and in the Notes section add the word “xmas” which I then use to filter for addresses for printing. This method works well enough, but I dislike having an additional entry (as a couple) for the individuals.

    Do you know of another way around this issue?

      It sounds like your workaround is a good one. That’s like something I would do.

    Thanks Gary. I was hoping there was a simpler solution, but if it works for you then it should be fine for me.

    If only those who wrote software for apps like Address book considered this issue…

    I learned something new today. Thanks for posting. This will be a great help for x-mas cards in the future.
