OK, this has nothing to do with our main web site, but came about as a by-product of the technology we use and we thought we should share it.
Whilst you are here, why not take a look at our web site where you can design family tree charts on screen and have us print them for you.
Or just spread the word to your friends!
Just specify your label dimensions and we then download a custom PDF file with all the label positions shown.
Then just type the data you wish to print in the boxes on the PDF.
The content of each label can be different, multiple copies, or all the same.
Any typeface, size, etc. Scroll down for instructions.
It has never been so easy!
And it is free!

When you type into the boxes on the PDF file, how many copies of each labels do you require?
(What you type on each label will be repeated automatically.)
Single copy of each label
All labels the same
Each label repeated times
The above is the default for your labels. On the PDF sheet you can type 'copies=n' on a label where n is the number of copies required.
From this point on, whatever you enter on a label will automatically repeat n times.
Use the proof version to make sure your layout is correct and your labels fit. You cannot enter data on the proof version.
Then download the final version and use it to produce your labels.
Once you have downloaded your PDF file, open it using a recent version of Adobe Reader (available free from here).
NOTE: This probably will not work in other PDF readers, nor will it work if opened in a browser window.
Click in any of the coloured boxes and press control-E to open a text editing menu strip.
Type your data. Use the menu to change text alignment, font, size, colour, etc.
Tab will take you to the next label. If you are re-using a sheet with labels missing, just type where you want your new label(s) to be.
If you elected for multiple copies of labels, this will happen automatically as you tab.
Use the PDF file as a template. Save a copy and use it as many times as you wish.
