Shipping Labels FAQs

Q: Can I use a regular printer to print shipping labels?

A: Yes, you can print shipping labels on a standard inkjet or laser printer, and service providers such as USPS, UPS, and FedEx often provide downloadable label templates that work with standard printers.

Choose a high-quality setup to ensure that the barcodes on your labels are clear and scannable, which is a key requirement for most shipping companies.

Q: Do I need to print my own shipping label to mail something?

When printed, the label will include all shipping information, the recipient's address, and the barcode needed for tracking. For best results, be sure to use the paper recommended by your shipping company.
