Why you should Use Pre-Printed Australia Post Labels for Express Post and eParcel Parcel Post
When you use a direct thermal printer like the Zebra ZD420 to print Australia Post labels via eParcel or MyPost you will find that their Express Post Labels should be a "Yellow" coloured Label and their eParcel Parcel Post (Standard Shipping Label) should be either black and white or a Red coloured label. This is done to allow their sorting staff and delivery staff to easily identify them as they are sorted and delivered differently. This blog will cover how you can use pre-printed Australia Post labels for both Express Post and Parcel Post (standard) and avoid delivery issues for your Australia Post service.
Pre-Printed eParcel Express Post Labels
Express Post is often used by eCommerce business owners due to their 1-2 day delivery time around most places in Australia. Traditionally pick and packers had to print the label from eParcel or MyPost in black and white stick it on and also stick another "Express Post" Yellow sticker in order for Australia Post to sort it correctly and their drivers to deliver it as an express service. The Yellow sticker rolls is although free from Australia Post shops but they are often out of stock as they are free.
The new and improved way to label Express Post parcels is to use a Pre-printed "Express Post" Label which has a yellow background and words printed in red as per below. This way of labelling will eliminate the use of plastic "Express Post" sticker tape and just have one label per parcel to reduce complexity of pick and packing express post orders.

Pre-Printed eParcel Parcel Post Labels
Parcel Post (Standard Post) eParcel from Australia Post is the most used courier in Australia so making sure you are printing and labelling them correctly and efficiently is extremely important to your eCommerce business. For eParcel Parcel Post you can use blank direct thermal labels 100x150mm or you can use Pre-printed Parcel Post which has a Red background. The Pre-printed eParcel Parcel Post label will be very useful when you use many different couriers like Aramex, Couriers Please, Toll, TNT, Sendle etc during your fulfilment process. This will minimise the chance of giving your parcel to the wrong courier which can happen from time to time.
