Print Shipping Address to Label

Hi there, 

I do understand the need to print address labels VS shipping labels. While the option to do so in bulk isn't yet integrated in the admin, you do have some third-party options. Check out the apps Address Labels, Super Address Labels, and LabelBot.

Each of these apps come with the capacity to help you print address labels either singularly or in bulk. You can even edit templates and achieve compatibility with the commonly known label brands such as Avery and Dymo. They're all around $5/month and the first one in the list comes with a full 30 day trial to give it a spin and see if it's suitable for your business needs. 

Let me know what you think!

Hi, 

I've taken the best part of half a day and I'm really struggling to find a solution to what I feel should be quite simple! The information on the internet is muddled with the difference between shipping labels and just printing an address on a label.

@Ren7 I found all of those apps and tried them. Your reply advises that 'Each of these apps come with the capacity to help print your address labels either singularly or in bulk'. 

I have a Zebra GK420D and I'm trying to utilize this to print our customer addresses on labels, essentially to save time from having to write on multiple boxes each day, these would need to be printed one at a time. However, In each of these apps, I could only see information regarding bulk printing, mostly on Avery paper.

Are you able to shed some light on this at all? There seem to be so many people in a similar situation.

Hi DizLun,
Apologies if this has already been mentioned, but thought I'd share my
workaround in case it's helpful.
- I had to go into my Shopify admin and manually select/filter customers to
create my shipping list.
- Then I clicked on Export and saved as a .csv file
- Then you have to clean up the spreadsheet so it reflects only the fields
you want to print for your address labels - but know you only need to do
this once.
- Then I went into Word and created my address labels - again, you only
need to do this once.
- Then I merged the .csv (see 'Mailings' menu) in Word.
- Save your Word doc.
Once I got this set up, I have been able to repeatedly print address
labels. Far from perfect, but I didn't need an app and was able to use my
existing label printer.
However each time you'll still need to select customers and create a .csv
list.

I hope this is helpful.

Hi @DizLun

Thanks for your post! Each of the apps should list what their compatibility is, so if there is no mention of your specific printer or software then I am not sure it'll work. That being said since these are third-party apps I would recommend reaching out to their support directly for a hand. You can find the contact information on the app store pages to the bottom right. 

Another merchant shared a helpful workaround below so please let me know your thoughts if you try it out!

Hey, 

Thanks for taking the time to bring this to our attention, we did spot this workaround on another thread actually! It's awesome to hear you've found something that works for you, however, this process won't fit the bill for us sadly. I feel like I'm going in circles at this stage, It is so perplexing that a solution isn't already available for such a simple task!

HI @getHeliGirl - would you mind hsaring your xlsx and docx templates? Your approach sounds great and would fit my store, but I tried for quite a while and failed to get this done.

would be awesome - thanks,

Agnes

HI Ren 7

You might be able to help. I am looking for integrated labels that will extract this information from Shopify

Order information, i.e. which product was picked

Whether a book is included or not

So basically pick and pack info.

Then I will have the message label and shipping label as stickers that would print the info to go direct onto the parcel.

Do you know if this exists and how I can achieve all this, it's basically one piece of paper, but with the two integrated stickers but also pick and pack info.

Many thanks in advance.
