Printing multiple addresses on one sheet of labels can save you time and extra labels. You can use applications such as Microsoft Word, WordPerfect and Open Office Docs to create multiple addresses on the same page. These applications will help you match the labels with the label sheet you want to print. You can double-check the vendor beforehand to ensure you have the correct size.
