Join Derrick Story for an in-depth discussion in this video Printing a contact sheet, part of Aperture 2 Essential Training.
Another output option that we have is making a contact sheet from a bunch of images that you have.…Now why would you want to do that?…Well, maybe you are really cheap and you just don't want to spend a lot of money on paper or possibly you just want…to have a lot of images on one sheet of paper but you can hand to somebody else and let them say, uh, I want that one…or I want that one and then you can make a big print.…I'm going to show you how to do that right now.…We are going to take one image and then I'm going to hold down the Shift key and I will click on another one…and we are just going to take a whole slew of shots here and we will go up here to print.…
Oh! Look at that, Aperture is so smart.…It knows I'm going to do more than one right now, so it changes Print Image to Print Images.…And it's going to bring up a dialog box very similar to what we saw when we printed a single sheet and in fact,…it is the same dialog box and if you have any questions about details…on these settings then see that movie on printing single images.…

Q: Are there a way to increase the font size in Aperture?
A: Not in Aperture itself, but you can use the zoom feature built into your operating system. (Aperture is a Mac-only program, by the way.) Go to the Apple menu and open System Preferences. Choose Universal Access. Turn on Zoom under the Seeing tab. Then, in any application, you can press Shift+Cmd+Plus to zoom in and Shift+Cmd+Minus to zoom out.
We advise you do not lower the screen resolution unless it's absolutely necessary, as that approach tends to make images softer than they really are. But if your sight is very poor, the tradeoff might be worth it.
