Print at least 2 Large Letter labels per A4 Sheet
When printing Large Letter labels it seems an obvious choice to use Standard A4- 4 labels per sheet stationery. The output from the click& drop postage purchase is a single label that fits into one of the 4 labels. That is great. The rest of the output is a superfluous 'insert in the package' label printed on the centre of the other half of the A4 sheet.
This a wordy description and a picture would be better but I dont have the option to add it here. This superfluous label is printed centred on what is essentially A5 ( the bottom half of the A4 sheet) The information for this, the senders details, 'straddles' two of the 4 labels on the sheet. This renders it useless as a label or rather two half labels, It also renders two unused labels unfit for any other use.
To print one large letter label requires 4 large letter labels three of which are discarded. I don't know if this is consistent with Royal Mail's Environment & Sustainability program, which won the Carbon Trust's Award this year, but then this wastage is generated on Customers Premises. Label paper is essentially two pieces of paper glued together. It is not easily recyclable and the current click and drop software make it impossible to re-use two labels on the sheet.
A software redesign that takes sustainability into account could save customers 75% of their costs for Labels and reduce their commercial refuse charges. They may even stand a chance of winning the Carbon Trust Award next year, if they email their entry.
Hi. Thanks for your feedback.
You can select from a variety of different print sizes and options by going to Settings > Label Format.
