What are the character limits for FedEx labels?

NOTE: keep in mind that not all characters have the same "width". There are instances where the to/from address is cut off, even though the address fits within the character requirements. In these instances, please cancel the label, and rebuy it. When you re-buy, make sure to abbreviate the field wherever possible.

If you are having trouble meeting the character requirements, we recommend you abbreviate where possible.  Here are some suggested abbreviations:

N North Rd Road
S South St Street
E East Ct Court
W West Ln Lane
