Integrated labels allow you to build a custom page template that features your shipping label in a design of your choosing.
Starting a new Integrated Labels template
To get started, click on the settings icon in the Shiptheory toolbar, select 'Integrated Labels' (or click here).
On the Integrated Templates page, click the 'Add New Template' button.
Setting your Template Details
First, you will need to select for which Label Size the template will apply. For instance, selecting '6"x 4" (UPS)' , would apply the template to all future UPS shipments.
Label sizes are shared across a selection of couriers as seen in the example above. If you wish to use an integrated label for a specific carrier then set the option in All carriers or select particular Carriers? to 'Select carriers'. You can then select one or more carriers which you would like the integrated label to print with.
Next, set the size of the integrated labels template you would like to design. You can either select common page sizes (A4, A5...) or enter a custom page size (in mm):
If required, you can set some page margins to be taken into account when designing your template. For instance if you need to allow space for your printer or a stock letterhead or footer design:
You can select whether to have the courier shipping label print out onto a separate page from the rest of the integrated label template. If you choose to do so, the shipping label will print in the top-left corner of the new page taking into account any margins set in the setting above. You can still choose to include the shipping label in your integrated template design.
Important: If you do not want to include the shipping label on the main page, do not drag the shipping label element onto the designer or you will received the label on both the separate page and the main page.
The Font and Size menus control the page's default font and size for new elements added to the template:
The Date Format selector lets you choose how dates are displayed on your templates, for fields such as 'Order Date', or the 'Shipped Date':
Date Format is located in the advanced tab at the bottom of the page
Now you have a new Integrated Labels template configured, you can get started creating your Integrated Labels design.
