Printing Shopify Shipping labels

You can print your shipping labels, customs forms, and packing slips in the following ways:

  • individually or in bulk when you're buying shipping labels
  • individually or in bulk from the Shipping labels page at any time after you purchase your labels
  • individually from an order's page

You can print your shipping documents separately or you can combine and resize them to fit on your selected printing paper format.

To print your shipping documents, you need to use a desktop printer or a Shopify-supported label printer.

If you want to make changes to your shipping labels, then you need to void them. For more information refer to Changing and voiding Shopify Shipping labels

Printing shipping labels with customs forms and packing slips

You can print your shipping labels together with your customs forms and packing slips. Your shipping documents are combined and resized to fit your selected printing paper format.

For example, if you print your shipping label with a packing slip using an A4 printing format, then the packing slip is resized to fit on the same page as the shipping label.

You can select one of the following paper formats to print your shipping documents:

  • Thermal (4 x 6 inch / 100 x 150 mm / A6) for label printers
  • Letter (8.5 x 11 inch / 216 x 279 mm) for desktop printers
  • A4 (8.3 x 11.7 inch / 210 x 297 mm) for desktop printers

Review the following example of a shipping label printed with a packing slip on a letter paper format.

Combined shipping label and packing slip letter format example

After you buy your shipping labels, you can print them individually or in bulk at any time from the Shipping labels page. You can also reprint shipping labels.

Your shipping labels are separated into batches based on when you purchase them. All shipping labels in a batch can be printed at once. A batch can have a single shipping label. Your shipping labels can have Printed or Not printed status that indicates whether you've already printed your shipping labels.

Steps:

  1. From your Shopify admin, click Orders > Shipping labels.
  2. Click Print ## labels next to the batch of shipping labels that you want to print.
  3. Optional: If you want to print your packing slip or a customs form with your shipping label, then select Collate with shipping label next to Packing slips or Customs forms.
  4. Select a paper size that matches the printer you're using to print the label.
  5. Click Print documents.

You can print your shipping labels, packing slips, and customs forms individually from an order's page. You can print your shipping documents separately and you can't combine them.

  1. From your Shopify admin, go to Orders.

  2. Click the order that you want to print a packing slip for.

  3. Click More actions > Print packing slips.

  4. Print or save your packing slip.
