How do I setup my laser printer & web browser for printing shipping labels?



Labels

The label templates in Neto are designed to be compatible with A4 shipping labels (4 per page). These can be purchased directly from your local stationary supplier and allows for the printing of four 6”x4” shipping labels per A4 page.

 

Ordering eParcel Label Stationary

Australia Post also offer the following single page envelope size labels for printing Express and Regular eParcel consignments. These can be ordered directly from Australia Post. We recommend this stationary for all eParcel users as it reduces paper wastage and allows for regular and express label printing using the same printer settings.

  • Australia Post eParcel - Code: 8839405
  • Australia Post Express Post eParcel - Code: 8839407
