A Complete Guide to Shipping Label Sizing
We understand the challenges that come with running a business, but something often overlooked is how to get your products to your customer, or send documents to other businesses. To help make the process a bit smoother for you, we have prepared a selection of labels and sticker sizes that work great for shipping or posting packages.

What size should a shipping label be?
- One of the most common shipping label sizes is 4x6 inches, which is 10x15 in centimetres. This size is ideal for containing all of your shipping information on it.
What is the right size for Royal mail shipping labels?
- When shipping with Royal mail, or using their click and drop service it is best to use a label 6x4 inches, and you can print up to 4 labels per A4 sheet. Or you can use an alternate A4 size label and print the delivery label with or without a delivery invoice. This size is also a good option for other postage couriers.
What is a good size label for small packages?
- Small packages are handled in a similar way to regular parcels. As long as the package has the delivery address and shows the postage payment (either franking or stamps), then any appropriately sized label that fits on the packaging will work.
