I'm currently migrating my store to Shopify! I'm in the UK
How do people print address labels for sticking to their packages for delivery?
On my current system I print the customer invoice to an A4 sheet which has an integrated label. The customer address is printed to a part of the sheet which is a 'peel off' label which I then stick to the package. Job done.
I can't find a way to replicate this on Shopify. In fact I can't find a way of printing out the address to a label at all really!
How is everyone printing their address labels?
Ren here from the Shopify support team. Welcome to the platform and congratulations on your new Shopify store!
I recommend checking out the Beginners Guide to E-commerce Shipping and Fulfillment to get you started. This covers everything you need to know from shipping strategies to insurance and tracking and more.
At this time, your best bet for printing shipping labels in the UK is going to be through a third-party app. Zenstores allows you to integrate with Royal Mail and print shipping labels seamlessly. If you happen to have carrier calculated shipping already, you can also use the Royal Mail Shipping Extension.
Finally, as far as printing goes, you can expedite that method by purchasing a DYMO label printer to quickly and easily print the labels you need for shipping.
These steps will get you going in the right direction! Let me know if you have any troubles implementing the above.
Thanks, but I'm not asking about 'shipping labels' with the shipping cost paid and included on the stamp.
I have a franking machine which prints the postage cost label but it doesnt include the address
I was simply asking about 'address' labels. Just a way of printing off the shipping address to a label to stick to the package.
Currently, on the store I am migrating from, I print off the invoice to a sheet of A4 which has an 'integrated label' for the address.
So I just peel that part off and stick it to the packeage and the rest of the invoice goes in with the package.
For anyone else looking to do this, I have discovered that using the 'order printer' app I can edit the template to put the shipping address field in the correct place so it prints on the integrated label. So I have solved the issue.
Hi, I installed the app 'order printer' and I am using that to print the orders. I adjusted the template code so that the shipping address is printed on the 'peel away' label on the paper. It all works for me ok.
Hey there, I am having the same issue. I have installed the order print app and i'm trying to print the address label on a dymo label writer 450. I cannot get the right format when trying to print for the size of my labels. Its driving me mad, I have searched all over the internet but nothing yet has helped.
My labels are the 30252 size address labels. Is anyone using these?
Thanks for reaching out.
It sounds like you might need to adjust your label format in the Shopify admin before printing. Once you have purchased your label and before clicking "print shipping label" make sure you click Change Format under the Print Options on the top-right of the page:
This will open a new window that will allow you to switch between label formats so you can print accurately on your Dymo printer.
That should do the trick! Let me know if I can clarify anything for you.
