You can use any type of printer with any type of paper, as long as there is a function to print A6 labels. The most important thing is that all the information on the label (and it's barcode) is clearly visible!
You can use a regular A4 printer to print your labels, which we advise you to do using A4 self adhesive parcel or shipping label paper. We can recommend using Avery A4 Self Adhesive Shipping Labels, or a similar product.
It’s important to make sure that the label paper you use works well with the type of printer you’re using whether it is Inkjet or Laser. Otherwise, it may be difficult for the carrier companies to scan your label, which may result in a surcharge.
Some of our customers also use specialised label printers that print on A6 labels (104mmx159mm). The most commonly used printers are the DYMO LabelWriter 4XL and also the Zebra GK420d Direct Thermal Printer.
If you’re shipping outside of the EU, you will need to print a CN23 customs declaration form and possibly a commercial invoice. These forms are always A4 - so it’s important to be able to print these also. The customs documents can be printed on regular paper, which you can attach to the parcel, alongside your shipping label.
