Make it possible to print labels and packing slips/items on Doc Tab
Usually, you can purchase thermal labels with a doc tab addition on top of the typical 4x6" label. Well, on other programs like ShipRush, we should be able to print item names/packing slip information on the doc tab. This is really really useful!
Hi, everyone! We read all of your feedback daily and noticed that this idea hasn’t seen any activity since we last checked in. Can you give us more information about how Doc Tabs would help your shipping workflow?
Please comment here in the forum so other users can add their input as well.
This would be incredibly helpful for us. We use UPS' 4x8 Thermal Label with the 2" perforation. We use this tab to keep track of serial numbers after shipment. I would love to be able to assign custom fields (customer name, order number, tracking number) to the tear off. We are handwriting this information currently. PLEASE!!!!!!

We need this as well for our internal records. I was amazed shipstation did not support it when every other piece of software we use does (even stamps.com directly will let us print doc labels). Going back to 4x6 labels in the printer is not an option for us because we use other smaller carriers that shipstation does not support, all of which use the doc label as well.
We need to be able to use a label size of 4"x8.25" perforated label. With the perforated portion of the label being 2.25". When we ship an order UPS the perforated part of the label goes to accounting and has the shipping cost, tracking number and other information on it that then goes with the paperwork they keep. This also tells them what to charge for shipping.
I am sure other SS users would like to have more options for the type/size of labels used when shipping. Without this I have more steps to shipping which we are trying to have less steps.

Please. All it needs is a bit of a summary in the 2"x4" second label! :) It would let us retain a physical copy of the tracking number to apply to our in-house invoices.

This would be very useful! Thoughts on making this possible: I can see having the option for customizing a packing slip template that supports the small format of the doc tab, then choosing the option to print the labels with packing slip similar to the option already available - only it would print the packing slip to the doc slip on the label rather than requiring an entirely separate label.
The label is a 4 x 6.75 with a .5in separate tab on the bottom of the label that can hold information regarding the order. ShipRush would put the date label created, postal code, tracking number and shipping method.
Use this link to FedEx that fully explains the doc tab.
You would need to add a new shipping label on the Settings page for label to use. I would really also like this feature!
Would like end of day reports to reflect all shipments and not just ground shipments.
Would like to see support added for thermal label size of 4X8. We use that size for WorldShip today so we have freight amount/other details on bottom tear off tab.
