Subject: Question on Printing Mailing Labels

Prior to printing a mailing label, there is a selection for using a mailing label.  I choose "yes" but when the label prints, it continues to have the PBS logo underneath the mailing label.  I usually tape paper over that area of my label prior to printing so it won't print on the second label that's on the sheet.

Is there another way to print on a mailing label and not have that large logo show up?  I could have sworn I got it to work once.  sad

I think I may have found an answer.  I guess I'm choosing the wrong selection for the printing format....  according to the help section:

If you are printing on a sticker (adhesive label), you can choose this:

  • Choose "yes" next to "Are you printing on a sticker?"
  • This option will show only if you have chosen the 1-page label (the choice on the far right at the top of the page).  You cannot choose to print on a sticker if you chose one of the two-page wrappers.

The only problem with this is that the option to print on a sticker also shows up when you choose the two page wrapper.

I will try this on my next book mailing (and hope that the bottom half of that 1-page label, won't print on my bottom label!)

The bottom half will still print.  I made a "custom"  label in Adobe (sized to my particular label).  When I open a label in Adobe I select my custom size under preferences and then make it so that ONLY the label shows on the screen.  When you go to print, the Print Menu comes up and I select Print viewable area.

Thanks Mary.  I will try that.
