The best method for attaching your label varies by container type. If shipping in a cardboard box, first clean the surface of your box and then attach your label using a self-adhesive pouch or packing tape. If shipping in a bike travel case, attach your label using a luggage tag and zip tie. Luggage tags are available at most UPS partner locations, or you can make your own.

  • Remove all old labels and markings from the outside of your box or case. This includes shipping labels, barcodes, HAZMAT and warning stickers, etc.
  • Put Label 1 inside your box or case, in the event that your outside labels become unreadable or are removed during transit.
  • Affix Labels 2 and 3 to the outside of your box or case. If using a hard or soft case, affix labels using a luggage tag.
