In order to print UPS World Ease labels using Thermal 4 x 11 label stock, you must set up a printing setup system preference. You can use your primary thermal label printer to print these labels or a secondary thermal label printer dedicated to printing only World Ease labels. To set up a secondary printer, see Set Up for Thermal 4 x 11 Labels (Secondary Printer).
UPS World Ease is available only if you have a contract for this service.
Only one printer can be set up to print Thermal 4 x 11 labels. If your secondary thermal label printer is set up to print these labels, delete that printer preference before setting up your primary thermal label printer to print the labels.
To set up your primary thermal label printer to print Thermal 4" x 11" World Ease labels:
On the Tools menu, click System Preferences. The System Preferences Editor window appears.
Select the Printing Setup tab. If two tabs (that is, Regular Labels and World Ease Labels) appear on the Printing Setup tab, clear the Use Separate World Ease Printer check box to delete the secondary label preference before continuing this procedure.
On the Printing Setup tab, click the Label Printer Setup button. The Label Printer Setup window appears.
Under Printer, click the Change Label Printer button. The Printer Selection window appears.
Select your thermal label printer and click the Select button. The Label Printer Setup window appears again.
Under Label Configuration, click the down arrow in the Label Stock Dimensions box and select Thermal 4x11.
Click the Apply button. The Printing Setup tab in the System Preferences Editor window appears again.
On the Printing Setup tab:
Under Current Label Configuration, verify that Label Printer shows your printer, Label Stock Dimensions shows Thermal 4x11, and Extended Area Usage shows World Ease Label.
Click the down arrow in each This Reference No. Prints on the Label box and select a reference number to appear on the label.
Click the Print Test Label button to make sure your printer is correctly set up for UPS WorldShip. If the label does not print correctly, recheck your configuration.
Tip: The reference numbers will not print on the test label; however, the reference numbers will print on a real label.
