How to: Customize USPS domestic shipping labels

Created:   |   Updated:

ShippingEasy supports four label options for 4" x 6" USPS domestic shipments, each configured to provide additional information about your shipments on your labels. Each of these label options will update the order information displayed on your shipping label:

  • Order Number (default)
  • List Order Items (SKU)
  • List Order Items (Description)
  • Carrier Note

Update your label option:

  1. Navigate to SETTINGS >> LABELS.

  2. From the Default Label Output menu, select 4" x 6"


  3. Scroll down to "Domestic USPS Label Options". 


  4. Click on the sample image that displays your desired order information.
    NOTE: Your selected label option will be highlighted in blue.   
  5. If the Carrier Note option is selected, the Carrier Note text field will appear below. Type your note in this field.  

    NOTE: The message will appear in large text at the bottom of the label. It is limited to 16 characters.  The same message will appear on all labels purchase while the setting is in place.
  6. Scroll down to the bottom of the page and Save your changes.

Choose your label option:

Each of the four label options will allow you to control the order information displayed on your shipping label. 

Order Number:

This label option will auto populate your order number on the label for easier picking.  

List Order Items (SKU):

In addition to auto populating your order number on the label, it will also print a pick list directly on the bottom of the label. The pick list is based you on order items/products and references each of the SKUs in your order. 

NOTE: The SKUs displayed on your label are limited to 100 characters. If your order items/products exceed the character limit then "etc" will be displayed. In this instance you might want to generate a more detailed pick list for your order. Learn more about pick lists

List Order Items (Description):

NOTE: The descriptions displayed on your label are limited to 100 characters. If your order items/products exceed the character limit then "etc" will be displayed. In this instance you might want to generate a more detailed pick list for your order. Learn more about pick lists

Carrier Note:
