Hi,

the easiest way to achieve what you need would be with a "stock" design. This means that you can set to have more labels on one sheet of paper. For example, see this design:

As you can see, I have set to have 4 rows and 2 columns of the label on 1 sheet of paper. This means that if I print 8 records from CSV at the same time, one A4 page will be printed with multiple "labels" on it.

I am also including the sample solution, which you might use for testing.

Can you please show us an example what output would you like to get? Perhaps if you have any PDF of the desired result, this would be helpful to understand your needs.

Hi,

Here is sample I try to do, I move label lower and leave space to add title on the letter size paper. I try many ways but seems once I use multiple label printing, I am not able to add fixed text on the paper anymore.

Thanks,

Hi,

unfortunately, this is not possible. NiceLabel is by default a label printing software, so it doesn't enable you some advanced layout formatting like you would do with some Office tool (like Excel for example).

Alternatively, you could enable Header label under "Label Properties > Batch Printing", so that you can design the first label differently, where you would enter some specific info for the entire series of a print.

I hope this helps!
