This article walks through the steps to create labels for households, instead of each individual. This works whether you’ve householded your database or not which can be beneficial if you have a very large database and haven’t had time to household it yet.
Tip: You may want to instead export your data as householded records if it’s a very large list, to send it to your mail house, here’s how.
Navigate to the Donors (Voters/Contacts) list under the Application Menu.
Build and run your search query. In my example I searched for all donors who gave last year and have a household of more than 3 people which produced 151 results.
Click the [Reports] button in the bottom-right of the screen.
Select the option for ‘Labels Name built by list-Combined House or by last name and address (Use Avery 5160) and click [OK].
Select your preference and click [OK]. In my example I chose the option for ‘<First Name> & <First Name> <Last Name>’.
The system will generate a print preview. My example is below.
Once you’re satisfied click [Print].
Select your printer and click [Print] again.
Tip: If you’re printing a lot of pages you may want to set a range of just a few pages to make sure your margins and everything are aligned correctly.
