Apple iWork is a suite of applications that allows you to create word processing documents, spreadsheets and presentations. It is similar in functionality to the popular Microsoft Office suite. There are two ways to create labels using iWork software. The first is to use the software's built-in mail merge feature. You are also able to download existing templates for popular label layouts and open them in the iWork software.

  1. 1

    Launch the iWork "Pages" application.

  2. 2

    Click the "Edit" menu and select "Merge Address Book Cards."

  3. 3

    Click on the address book that you wish to use when prompted. Drag and drop certain entries from your address book if you do not wish to use all of the contacts contained within.

  4. 4

    Organise the contacts into same layout as your label sheet. Print a test page and make sure that the entries are aligned correctly with your label sheet. If not, adjust them so that they line up correctly. Print the contacts onto the actual label sheet when they are aligned.
