I'm trying to configure printing of a membership card directly from Civi using a custom mailing label format. Here's what I've done so far:
- Created a custom label format with the parameters for Avery Label 5371 (business card)
- Tried to get the data to print as a mailing label on the card stock (which is pre-printed with the org logo) by creating a message template using tokens for member name, membership expiration date, and membership type (Membership Card Data).
- From member search results, performed the action "Create Mailing Label" and selected the custom label format I created in step 1.
- Result is a nicely printed list with the name and address of each person, not the information specified in Membership Card Data.
I am guessing that the custom label format controls the size and number of each entry on a page, and the Membership Card Data message template is ignored and replaced by the specs in Localization>Address Settings/Mailing Label. I can't find anywhere to add a new mailing label format that contains the tokens I need for membership cards.
I've combed the boards and have seen discussions, but none seem to address my particular problem. Any thoughts?
