Anyone can design their own shipping label keeping in view a few necessary formalities of a standard shipping label, which can be used internationally. Here take a look at the following tips:

  • First of all the shipping label must be designed in English language i.e. all the details must be in English language so as to facilitate international processing at borders and ports.
  • Shipping labels are designed in black and white form. However in rare cases the company name and or logo is printed in colored form. Rest all the label is black and white text and other figures.
  • Shipping labels have small sections which include information about sender, receiver, product, the shipping company and other relevant details of product and shipping in respective sections.
  • The addresses of senders and receivers are to be mentioned in full, with all details and contact numbers.
  • To avoid theft and other vandalism risks, the technologies like bar codes are in use. So there must be a barcode placement on the shipping labels and properly coded with all necessary information so that it can’t be misused or stolen during the shipments.
  • If shipping label is designed for a courier service company, the label will have a fixed printed label design with company name and design format.
  • Dates of shipment and arrival should be mentioned on the shipping labels. This usually is the responsibility of courier companies which enter this information while the product is being shipped.

Shipping labels should be designed on durable paper, since the goods might face strong conditions while on their way to the receiver.
