Tips for Abbreviating USPS Shipping Addresses 

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 repurchase it. When you repurchase, 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
