3 Types of Shipping Labels
Shipping labels are used by mail carriers to identify and sort packages so that they can be routed to the right destinations. They usually have specific tags such as priority, commercial, standard, or international packages. They’re also important for including tracking numbers. Label your package in a way that will get your customers to recognize your brand instantly. Remember your customers get the first impression of your company through the shipping labels on your packages, promotion or correspondence.

Keep the font simple: This will make it easier to highlight your company’s name. Limit yourself to no more than 2 font types and choose colors that are consistent with your brand identity.
Highlight your logo: This is one of the best ways to make your brand recognizable and so this is one thing you must never forget. As soon as your customers receive a package from you, they will instantly recognize it’s from you because of your logo. Consider the Apple logo which is so memorable they don’t even need to add their name on their products.
Standard uncoated labels: This type of label paper is similar to copy paper but with an elegant matte finish. This can be written on with a permanent marker or ball point pen. Best for indoor use as it’s not waterproof but perfect for post office shipping labels.
Standard semi-gloss label: This type of paper has a subtle mirror effect kind of finish. A permanent marker can be used on this type of label but make sure you give it some time to dry. They’re also suitable as shipping labels for packages.
Standard hi-gloss label: This type of paper has a distinct mirror finish and will deliver a premium glossy photo quality for bottle labels. They dry instantly, are wipe resistant and ideal for limited editions of special gifts and bottle packages as they’re also laser printer shipping labels.
Standard white vinyl label: These are waterproof and best for indoor use. They are normally used on fridges, plastic or glass bottles and various products and packaging as well.
Standard clear label: These are completely transparent. The glossy top coat enhances the see-through material so it looks crystal clear. When applied against a clear glass or clear plastic container, the label virtually disappears making it look as if you printed on the packaging itself.
