Shipping labels are the labels you need to use to make your packages legally acceptable for mailing. In terms of shipping labels, 4 x 6 labels are widely recognized as the industry standard. But why 4 x 6 instead of other label sizes? There’s no technical answer for this question, and the primary reason it’s 4 x 6 is that it’s just what major carriers expect and use. There are several smaller variations (like 4 x 5) that may be better for your packages, but generally speaking, it would be best to stick with the standard 4 x 6 size. The 4 x 6 shipping label can fit most packages, is heavy-duty, and easy to read and scan.
The biggest disadvantage of using direct thermal labels is that their prints will fade over time. The printed images are also sensitive to heat and UV exposure. Generally, direct thermal labels can last anywhere between 6-9 months, depending on the environment and the type of label. To help keep them from fading, however, we recommend storing them away from direct sunlight and heat exposure.

Does not stick very well. I've had several cases when the label has completely come off during transit.
They print well. The price is reasonable. The only problem that I have with these labels is that they don't stick as well as I would like. A little bit of tape takes care of the this.
perfect, works good
Everything works fine except that the labels are curled towards the end of the roll. However I've tried a few other brands, and they did the same as well. So, I can't really say this is better than the others.
