It does not state if special labels, packaging, forms are needed?  Do we just need to put the printed label on the box and that's it?

Hi Connie, 

When the carrier service option UPS Next Day Air is selected, the label generated will be all that is needed to ship the package. Simply affix the label to the package, and it is ready to go!
