New 26 character short field for Product Name / Dynamic Label Messages

ShipStation currently provides the ability to print 3 custom messages on shipping labels, including dynamic information about the order.

Our feature request is for ShipStation to allow us to assign a "shortcode" for each Product Name, such that if the product name is longer than 26 characters we can assign a shortcode for Label Printing that may be different than the full name of the product shown on the Packing Slip and Pick List.

For example, the full name of the product shown on the packing slip may be "Joe's All Natural Hot Sauce, Red Pepper 12 oz." while the 26 character shortcode could be set to "Hot Sauce Red Pepper 12 oz". Currently, the Product Name will be printed - in many cases the leading characters are the brand name which may be the same for all products. This isn't really helpful for warehouse employees when doing a quick check.

ShipStation could add an additional field to the products screen to allow us to assign a short 26 character value for purposes of mapping to Label Printing only.
