Shopping for Shipping Labels and Tags

When you're sending out a letter or package, the attached shipping labels are not only what help depict the address information to get the item safely to its proper destination, they also create a first impression to the recipient. The shipping labels you use, whether it's to ship for business or personal purposes, are important. Before you order ones to use, the following information can help you narrow down your vast amount of label options on eBay to choose ones that are best for your specific needs.

Are all of the labels blank?

No, not all of the labels are blank. There are ones that are already printed with pertinent information that could prove useful for whatever item you're sending. Depending on what you're shipping, the pre-printed labels could either go externally on the shipping packaging, on the item itself that you're sending, or the individual packaging the item is in. You may be able to purchase labels such as those that warn of a suffocation risk, fragile stickers, and ?This Side Up? stickers.

What kind of moving labels can you find?

If you're moving, using color-coded moving labels can help you keep your boxes organized so you're less overwhelmed later while the boxes are heading in your new home and while you're unpacking. You can find several different room labels on eay, and they're each typically attached to individual rolls so they're easy to use as needed. Rooms may include:

  • Kitchen
  • Living Room
  • Dining Room
  • Bathroom
  • Storage
Do shipping tags come in any bright colors?

You could find the shipping tags in bright colors in addition to ones that are in neutral shades. For example, you may be able to buy them in red, green, blue, orange, and yellow.

How can you use blank shipping labels for USPS shipping?

When you're shipping via USPS, the blank shipping labels can really come in handy. They can be used in a variety of different ways, not just for depicting the recipient's address. You can easily find ones that can go into a printer, or you could hand-write the addresses on the labels. Additionally, you could also use the labels to write an important message on them such as ?Fragile? or ?This Side Up.? While the labels can certainly be useful for when you're shipping through USPS, they can have other uses, as well, such as for organizing files, identifying contents of storage boxes, or for labeling wrapped gifts during the holidays.
