I want to print addresses on stickers.  A different address per person.

how do I do this?  If I do it by hand, I'll have errors.  But I have stickers that are two stickers per letter size paper.  I want to copy-paste the addresses into something and then print them.  What do I tell google to learn how to do this?

Maybe input addresses into a spreadsheet in a grid? If I'm reading your question correctly, you have two jumbo stickers per 8-1/2x11 sheet, but want many addresses per sticker to then cut with scissors?

When I used to have to print address stickers, I'd put all the addresses in MS Word, set the document to 3 columns, check that none are cut in half at column breaks, and then print them on sticker paper and cut them by hand.

You want to do a mail merge from software like Open Office (free!). Basically, you set up a spread sheet or list of your information and then put data fields onto a page that mimics your labels, and off you go!

(Google mail+merge+open+office to see info, instructions and even videos of how to do this!) :>)

When we order labels online from usps.com or pirateship.com (both in the U.S., of course - though maybe pirateship does Canada?), they print out on the two labels per page format.

Or, if you aren't doing that, or don't want to do a spreadsheet merge with a word processor, or figure out all the columns and such, it can be easier to find the corresponding label template in your word processor.

It's often under "envelopes and labels" and will usually let you choose from a big list of labels.
