Custom label designs

Custom label designs give you complete control over the content and appearance of your labels. Add your own images, include customer information and other data from your orders, and more.

Dimensions

Custom label designs are not associated with a specific label sheet template. When printed the design will be auto-sized to fit in the dimensions of the label being used.

Therefore, any label design can be used with any label sheet template.

Content placement

A single label can be split into different regions, each accepting one of several content elements, such as a text template or an image. The application provides a variety of pre-defined region grids for you to choose from. This region grid serves as the foundation of your design.

Please contact us if there isn't already a grid that suits your design.

Creating a new custom label design

From the Home page, select "Your Label Designs" from the vertical menu on the left side of the page. Then click on "Create a new label design". You will be prompted to select a grid pattern to serve as a foundation for your new label design.

A custom label design can include any combination of the following elements:

Text Template
Rich formatted static text and template variables (non-wrapping).
Text Template (Auto Word Wrap)
Rich formatted static text and template variables (auto-wrapping).
Order Shipping Address
Shopify formatted "To" mailing address.
Return Address
Shopify formatted "From" mailing address based on your Shopify profile.
Order Name Barcode
The order name/number as a barcode.
Image
User-supplied image.
Label Sequence
The current copy number when generating multiple copies of the same label.

Preview

Custom label designs do not have to be created for any particular label sheet model. When printed the design will be auto-sized to fit in the label being used. Therefore, you can choose a particular label sheet and orientation to provide dimensions for the preview from the dropdowns above the label preview.

Mock order data for the preview comes from a built-in sample order.

Using your custom label design

From the main "Print" tab, in the left-hand toolbar, select the "Custom" tab. Then, if necessary, select a specific custom label design from the “Label Design” dropdown.

Using your custom label design for the return address label

From the main "Print" tab, in the left hand toolbar, select a specific custom label design from the “Return Address Labels” dropdown.

Displaying order information

To include information from your shop's orders on a label, such as the customer's phone number or the order name, see the including order data help topic.
