How to Print Envelopes
with Mac OS X Contacts

Now that Scrubly has properly updated and formatted your Contacts in Mac OS X, you can print envelopes from the Contacts app.

Here’s how:

1. Open Contacts. If you don’t have it on your dock, click the Launchpad app (it has the rocket icon) and enter “Contacts” in the search field at the top.

2. Select a group or a single contact. (You can select more than one contact by using the Command + up or down cursor keys).

3. Press Command+P to print (or select Print from the File drop-down menu).

4. If the printer details for the Contacts app (see step 5) are not already displayed, click on the Show Details button (see below).

  • Select Contacts from the printing options drop-down menu.
  • Select Envelopes in the Style drop-down menu.
