Hi Joep,

The standard label formats included with LibreOffice and OpenOffice are the same type as Microsoft uses with fixed blocks. These tend to not to be accurate if the card/label is relatively full as you get toward the bottom of the page, even in Microsoft. There are also table style templates available (or at least used to be available) as an extension for OpenOffice. I have found them very easy to adjust, and they print perfectly for both business cards and labels for me. They are available at: or probably as an extension for OpenOffice.

AFAIK your business cards form should print correctly on any printer
that has a large enough printing area. I have found the typical tweaks I
need are to adjust the margins of the text slightly so it does not print
on the edge.

I would print a set on plain paper and visually inspect to see if the
output looks correct. Then I would make any changes and repeat the test
page. Finally, when I think I have it correct I would print 1 set out
and see if there are any small problems.

Thanks for your reply. However, the problem is you cannot make any changes. You cannot change the layout, only when you make a new business card sheet. How would you make the changes?
