Problem: Some shipping platforms only provide you with a full-page (8.5″ x 11″) document. Frequently, they use half of the page for the shipping label and the other half for receipt or packing slip. While there are many ways to split this page into a 4″ x 6″ label size. Below is our usual solution.

Solution for Mac:  (click this link for video tutorial)

  1.  Save your label as a PDF file
  2.  Open the file in Adobe Acrobat Reader
  3. Go to “Edit” -> “Take a Snapshot”
  4. Drag the box over your label, then right click on it and select “Print”.
  5. Select Printer -> Click “Page Setup…” ->  Select Printer from “Format For: ”  -> Select label size ”4*6“ from “Paper Size:“
  6. If the size you need is not listed, then click “Manage Custom Sizes” -> input width, height and rename the size, then click “OK”
  7. Click “Printer…” -> “Show Details” -> Select “Printer Features” in “Preview”.
  8. You can set up printer properties, such as “Media Tracking”, “Darkness” and “Print speed”. (Larger number means higher Darkness)
  9. Preview, check the print size and Orientation. If preview looks good, click “Print”.
