How to assemble Student care package Labels
Once you have downloaded your free student care package labels you are set to assemble. First print the labels, then cut them out. Use a glue stick or tape to adhere them to the four flaps of the box. Because there is an extra print, you can use it to place it on the bottom of the box to finish this off.
What boxes to use for care package
Go to your local USPS location and pick up a box for free! All labels can be sized down. My printable Halloween labels have been sized for USPS flat rate boxes, however, you can also use an amazon box that you may have, just print out the labels and size to what you need.
- USPS flat rate box sizes:
- Large flaps are 11 3/4 – 12″x6″
- Medium size ( this is more a rectangle box) flaps: 10 3/4″x 4 1/4″, 8 1/4″x 4 1/4″
- Small 8.5″x5.5″
Items that cannot be shipped in these care package boxes
I know! we all know the list, but I was surprised when I looked that nail polish and perfume were on this list for ground transportation only. So take a moment to look at it. The link is here for that information for USPS shipping restrictions.
Pricing for flat rate USPS boxes for care packages
Again you can find all this information on the USPS website here at usps.com. However, with one flat rate, lots can be packed into these boxes.
