Create shipping labels you’ll be proud to display on packages and other delivered items. Order in individual cut-to-size labels or print in rolls that are easier to apply on hundreds of surfaces.

Custom dimensions available for roll labels.

Here are a few tips for creating personalized shipping labels that will complement your packages and strengthen your brand presence.

How to Utilize Your Shipping Label Printing

Choose the paper stock that best fits your brand image and shipping needs. These materials are listed under cut-to-size labels:
  • White vinyl is made to stand up to vigorous indoor and outdoor use for general purpose shipping labels.
  • White paper sticker lasts indoors and can be printed with protective gloss or matte lamination. Suitable for paper correspondences such as promotional messages, announcements, and company updates.

Roll labels are available in the following materials, in addition to white premium sticker paper:
  • BOPP comes in white, clear, or silver metallic colors. Recommended for labels that will be exposed to oil and moisture. It also provides a set background that may complement the item for delivery or the envelope’s color.
  • Textured material comes in white vellum or cream laid variations. It is normally used on wine bottles. This material’s writable surface is perfect for handwritten labels.

Elevate your shipping label design with gloss, matte or high gloss coating. Matte lamination has a muted, low-glare finish that suits pastel and neutral hues. Colors result with an elegant effect, giving the impression you are a luxury brand. May not be ideal for designs that need to appear bold and bright at a glance.

Gloss coating has a shiny finish that makes brilliant colors stand out from afar. High gloss adds an extra vibrant shine that will instantly call attention.

Note that each material comes with specific coatings. The textured material only comes in matte or uncoated for writability.

Why You Need to Personalize Your Shipping Labels

Shipping labels are an overlooked and underutilized avenue for promoting your brand. A custom design adds value to every package you send out.

This means that every time your recipients receive a package, they immediately see your branding on the package exterior. This increases the customer’s brand recall and establishes recognition of your logo and brand colors.

Here are a few other advantages of personalizing your shipping label printing:
  • Customized labels on packages help build excitement, anticipation, and ultimately a better experience with your brand, which may effectively turn into recurring sales and more revenue.
  • These designs provide a professional image of your company, which helps establish your reputation as a small business.
  • Creates a brand identity that is consistent with the rest of your marketing materials. Stick to colors, fonts, and an aesthetic that customers can see on your website and social media.
  • Makes the customer feel special upon receiving the package. Write their names by hand or create a design specific to the product they ordered.
