Print to Printer from Dashboard

When you find your shipment click on the white arrow in the blue box and select the 'print example printer' option in the drop down menu to print the shipment label off of your selected label.

If this option does not appear then check the shipment status shown in Shiptheory is either Complete or Waiting to Print.

Barcode printing
