Why are shipping labels important?
At first sight shipping labels might look like just a small piece of the shipping management process, but they are essential when you need to complete the sale. This small piece of paper basically guides your parcel from your warehouse to the customer.
The look of your label depends on the carrier you use, but usually it contains the origin address, shipping address, names, barcode, QR code, parcel’s weight and content’s information as well as the shipping class.
Another thing about labels is that they have to be properly secured on the parcel. Otherwise they could peel off and your parcel won’t be able to reach its destination. Many online sellers have their warehouses or ship straight from their home, so they are more interested in printing labels themselves instead of buying them already printed at the post office. That is also possible if you have the right printer.
