How to Create Shipping Labels on Your Computer

How to Create Shipping Labels on Your ComputerWhen you bring a parcel to a post office, a post office operator generates a shipping label and attaches it to the parcel. A shipping label contains information about the parcel required for shipment, such as the sender’s and the recipient’s address, weight, description of contents, tracking number, etc. You can save money and reduce the amount of time you spend at a post office by creating domestic and international shipping labels on your computer.

The last thing you want to do after a long day of work is stand in line at a post office, waiting to ship your package. You can save a considerable amount of time by creating a shipping label on your computer and printing it out. In this case, you can drop off the package without having to wait in line or even schedule a free package pickup to save a trip to the post office.

Most major mail carriers, including the United States Postal Service, UPS and FedEx, enable their customers to create postage labels online. They provide tools that allow to create shipping labels on any Internet-connected computer. Once the label is generated, you can print it out right away or save it as PDF to print later or e-mail the label to another person should the need arise.

Alongside shipping label generators offered by mail carriers, there are alternative tools provided by various companies. Such tools allow to create valid postage labels and offer additional benefits such as shipping discounts, several payment methods to choose from, and more. One of such services is PostageMaker.

We help our customers to save both time and money by providing an automatic discount: our rates are 5–18% lower (depending on the destination and delivery type) than the official USPS rates.

To start generating shipping labels anytime and anywhere with PostageMaker, you need to complete two easy steps: register in the system, which will only take you a couple of minutes, and add funds to your personal account.

To create a label, you need to fill out a form: enter the sender’s and the recipient’s address, select a postal service (USPS or FedEx), specify customs information, and choose your preferred rate.

Then, the system generates a postage label, and the payment for the label is automatically withdrawn from your personal account. Once the label is ready, you can print it or save the label as PDF. Labels generated with the help of PostageMaker are 100% valid and meet all the requirements of the USPS, the United States Customs Service, and the postal and customs services of the recipient country.
