I'm just starting out and using UPS exclusively for shipping. I'd like to purchase a label printer that will print UPS labels – any recommendations on which label printers work and which don't? It looks like for the time being I'm stuck with printing directly from our UPS account.

We also have this great doc for more information with regards to printers and shipping labels which you may find useful :)

UPS API sends labels in the following format :
Thermal or Zebra printers can print labels in both these formats. Although ZPL is the default format.

Shopify converts these labels into PDF and the following printers can be used to print these labels :
Dymo LabelWriter 4XL
Brother QL-1110NWB

However, if you have a printer that only recognises PNG, you can use the multi carrier shipping label app to generate the labels in this format and print them.
