Mailing labels download in Microsoft Word format. At this time, the file generated can only be opened in Microsoft Word (both PC and Mac) as alternate programs such as Pages, Open Office, etc. do not support the mailing label format used. Additionally, mailing labels print in all Caps to comply with USPS regulations.

Customize Mailing Labels

  1. Pull up the list of people you'd like to create mailing labels for (by running an advanced search, searching by tag, or another method).
  2. On the right, click "Export."
  3. Select "Mailing Labels" from the dropdown list.
  4. Click the pencil icon in the bottom left corner of the window.
  5. Select one of the provided templates or use the "custom" option to define your own template.
  6. Click "Download."

Mailing Label Size

You can choose which size you would like your mailing label to be on. 

By default the size is Avery 5160 (30 mailing labels per sheet) but by clicking the "change" button you can choose from a variety of different sizes.

Don't Have Microsoft Word?

Mailing labels require Microsoft Word to open by default.  However, there is a workaround to this!

Follow the directions found in our article Printing Labels Without Microsoft Word

Using the Mail Merge [First Name] will pull the Nickname if there is a nickname stored in the profile.

  • How do you create labels at the level of a household, not individual, and store the way to address a household? For example, suppose we want to mail every household, not every person, and the addressee should be "Mr & Mrs John Smith" or "The Smith Family" - customizable per household? I'm confused that Breeze doesn't seem to have household-level records.

  • Hey @rich,

    Great question! As long as you select the option "Group by Family" then you will print out a mailing label for the household. Then, if you would like to customize the labels, select the pencil icon in the lower left-hand corner of the pop-up window. Here is an image for reference:

    Blessings!

  • We want to print labels in order by zipcode AND have the married couples on one label. I can only find where it will print them separately if in zipcode order. Help please.

  • @cmowery great question! You would want to simply select both "group by family" and "sort by postal code" options. 

     

    If you need to customize what information the label contains you can select the pencil in the bottom left-hand corner to make necessary adjustments to the template.

  • We would like a special label for Epiphany Stars. Format:

    The Smith Family

    111 Main St

    Salisbury NC 28144

    Jim, Jane, Johnny, Mary, Joseph, Ann

    (This is the parents, then all the children) I can get it to print the spouses, but not the children's in custom mode.

  • Is there a way to use mixed case on the labels, e.g. Mary Smith.

    The reason is that we have entered people's names with their french accents, e.g. Léon, but the label is printed like this: LéON - the upper case accented letter is not used. Is there a way in the Custom setup to ask it to use "sentence case"?

  • Hey @treasurer,

    I do think that this is a great idea and one that I can see us implementing along the same lines in the future. If you wouldn't mind taking a moment and submitting a formal feature request so that our development team is aware that would be greatly appreciated. You can submit a formal feature request here: Submitting Feature Requests

    Blessings and thank you for the great idea!

  • Can I setup a label size or must use a preset size?

  • Hi @zynderk! Great question here! You can choose which size you would like your mailing label to be on from the "Format" dropdown, but as for setting up a label size, this might be something that can be accomplished within Microsoft Word's features!

    Hope this helps!
