IMHO the best software to do this is Address Book which includes most Avery templates as standard. One of the reasons is that it is easy to amend and add details and fields without messing up your layouts.
Having said that you can download Avery Templates here: http://www.avery.com/avery/en_us/Search/_/siteschannels-templates-software/appli cations-apple-pages/siteschannels-labels/_/?allref=1&Ntt=snowflake&Ntk=All&Nr=AN D(SITESCHANNELS:Avery.com)&Ntx=mode%20matchall&y=0&dimsearch=true&N=4294963717+4 294963426&x=0

You chose a group of addresses you want to print and then use command-P. You will get a drop down menu where you have to select the Avery number or size of labels. It's pretty rigid.
I can't stand the limitations of the Contacts method of printing address labels. I don't want to waste a partial sheet if my selection doesn't come out even with the number of labels. I'd like to duplicate addresses which I use often to fill up the partial sheet. I like being creative with fonts, colors and even borders or images. Your ability to be creative with Contacts printing is severely limited.
I've used Pay&Play's Label Printer Pro software for years. I originally paid MUCH more for this program. It's extremely versitle. Design one label and you can copy it to the rest of the labels in the drop down menu with one click. Chose how many of whichever lablel you want to duplicate with a simple cut and paste to fill up the page.
I can vouch that it works perfectly with Mountain Lion, v 10.8.2.
Here's the link to their direct download from their website for $6.95:
Or you can look up Label Printer Pro 7 on the app store and pay $9.99.
No, I don't work for or have any ties to the company other than being a satisfied customer of a product which suits my needs perfectly.

Sorry about the confusion in my previous post. It won't let me back in to edit the comment. The first paragraph is about using Contacts to print labels. I haven't found an easy way to print them in Pages, thus my pitch for the best alternative I've found: Label Printer Pro 7.
