On December 18, 2019, we launched support for printing shipping labels on thermal paper for Fulfillment by Amazon (FBA) sellers in North America. You now have the option to print FBA box and pallet labels using the thermal printing format (4 x 6 inches) when you create shipments to Amazon fulfillment centers.
Why is FBA launching this?
Previously, FBA supported only the US letter format (8.5 x 11 inches) for printing box and pallet labels. The format requires some additional handling, since multiple labels are printed on the same page and you have cut out the individual labels.
Thermal printing allows you to print labels individually. This simplifies handling, improves label readability, and makes it easier to match labels to the correct boxes and pallets.
