I'm on board, what do I do next?
1.) Test both label styles on your packages for adhesive strength and durability. Be sure to mimic actual fulfillment conditions to ensure success. Request samples.
2.) If applicable, acquire compatible shipping software and laser printer. Schedule implementation to coincide with the arrival of the labels.
3.) Decide which style works best for your company and download the corresponding template HERE to design your own label. If you want eCom to design your label for you, an order needs to be placed first. Select “eCom Custom Label Design” and a member from our team will contact you via email within 24 hours to discuss design ideas.
4.) Place your order HERE and upload your art, if applicable.

PANEL 3 - Often used for gift message, return information or coupons.
PANEL 4, 5 and 6 (back side) - About us stories, advertisements, care instructions, coupons, maps and directions, membership sign up, recipes, return/exchange policies, social media, tasting notes or warranties. The possibilities are endless!

How long does it take to get the labels, once an order is placed?
Production is typically 5-7 days after final art approval. Shipping time is dependent on ship method and location.
Is it possible to apply the current 4”x 6” shipping label onto the eCom label?
Although the eCom labels are designed to have the outbound shipping information printed directly onto it, some customers have opted to apply the 4”x 6” label to it with great success.
Can the eCom Label be applied to polybags?
Yes, the labels have been tested on corrugated boxes and polybags. The surface area must be a minimum of 5.5” x 8.5”, clean and dry. Do not apply the eCom Label over seams or edges. Apply label to the bag prior to filling it.

Not at this time.
