What are the character limits for UPS labels?

To ensure all of the information you need gets printed on your label, make sure you understand the character limits for UPS labels. 

Field Maximum character count
First/Last Name 35
Company 35
Address line 1 35
Address line 2 35
City 30
State/Province 30
Email address 50
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
