UPS Shipping Label

Our half sheet shipping label is perfect for printing the UPS shipping label. Our half sheet label is the ML-0200
When printing out your labels, you might want to also print out some information that is printed out by default when printed out in the major Web Browsers like Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, and Microsoft Internet Explorer(IE).
One thing I always like to stick on the footer is URL, which usually contains the tracking number. Another is the date which it was printed, and you also might want a time stamp. Unfortunately in Chrome, you can only toggle off or on the default headers. FireFox gives you a dialog box to put in what you want, nice. IE also gives you a print setup dialog box to edit what is in the footers. I still prefer Chrome over the others. It’s fast. >:)

Half Sheet Label

Our Half Sheet Label is a great product. There are so many uses for it. You can use it to print a UPS Shipping Label, a USPS Shipping Label, and a Fedex Shipping Label.
In a pinch, if you have spare stock, but are short on address labels, you can also use it as an address label, by manually cutting the sheet to size. It’s a quality label that’s versatile.

Whoa, double Maco, All the Way

I saw the double rainbow video for the first time this weekend on youtube. It’s a video that some guy took of a really beautiful rainbow, in fact, a double rainbow. His commentary seems pretty normal at first, but the he goes off the tracks. You have to be patient, the payoff comes late in the video, but it’s worth it. Very entertaining. Just take a look, you’ll see. After you look at that one, check out the Autotune song version of that video.
So when I found out one of our customers was using two of our products which both happen to have two labes on each page I had to write about this double Maco…..all the way. They use the CD/DVD label, the ML-7560, and they also use the ML-0200.

Make your own Custom Address Label

I touched on this topic a few posts ago, but it merits repeating. If you’ve got an artistic itch you want or need to scratch, and you have a little left over space on a full sheet label, half sheet label, a quarter sheet label or even an ML-0600 label, then get yourself an x-acto knife. It doesn’t take much talent, just a steady hand, the right amount of pressure, a pair of good eyes and a sharp x-acto knife. Dull x-acto knives will kill this idea in a heartbeat. You’ll be tearing the label instead of cutting it, and then you’ll be tearing your hair out.
Choose a piece of artwork according to your skill level, and according to the amount of time you want to spend cutting out your artwork. I’m choosing one of my favorite animals, the whale. I have a collection of whale cups at home. I let people know that I have a collections of whale cups, so when people go on vacation they send me all kinds of cups and mugs that have either depictions of whales, or are in the shape of a whale. The tail is usually the handle on the cup. I’ll be using one of my mugs as a starting point for my label artwork.
Using the Gimp and Inkscape, my final product is an outline of a killer whale. I stuck it on a full sheet label.

And here’s the final product on an envelope.:

Half Sheet Label Printing tip

There are times when you’re printing half sheet labels when you want to print only half the sheet and use the other half at a later time. One example of this is when you’re printing a Fedex Ground or Fedex Express shipping label. Normally, the Fedex shipping label will be printed on the top half of the page, and the instructions are printed on the bottom half of the page. These days, it’s a necessity to save everywhere you can. There is a way to print only the top half of the label, and not print the bottom half instructions. What you need to do is select the Shipping label. To do that, you need to put the mouse pointer just to the right of the Shipping label graphic and click and drag to the left so that the label looks like this in your browser:

After that’s done, type CTRL-p to get the Print dialog box. Once you see that box, check the checkbox named “Selection”. That will only allow what is selected to print, saving the bottom half of the page, so you can flip it, and use the bottom blank half for your next label.
You’re welcome. 🙂
