- The most possible reason is that your label page with 8.5x11'', not 4x6''.
If you are printing 4x6" from these platforms like Amazon, eBay, Shopify, Paypal, Poshmark, Pirate Ship, Shipstation, Shippo... change your label size setting to 4 x 6 before you print. If you cannot figure it out, contact customer support or search related video from YouTube for reference, thank you.
By default, Some platforms produce labels in an 8.5 x 11 size at present which won't fit 4x6'' correctly. Like USPS, UPS, Mercari ...
If you print a few per day, we recommend our customers crop the label.
Like a USPS label from USPS website, choose PDF instead of Print Label > open with Adobe Reader > Choose Edit > Take a Snapshot > Select/Highlight the label's area > Right click in the highlighted area and select Print (choose 4x6'' as paper size), then it will be printed perfectly.
If you are printing many per day, we recommend our customers use shipping platforms like Shippo, Pirates Ship...you can print 4x6'' label directly and get discounted shipping cost.
- Make sure that loaded label, label page and printer settings are all the same size. Like if your shipping label page with 8.5x11'' and you use 4x6'' label for printing, it will print incorrectly.
