Finish Line Shipping Labels

Finish Line Shipping Labels (Label Placement – Shipping Cartons)

Finish Line Shipping labels must be placed in the lower right hand corner of the long end of the carton. Finish Line Shipping labels basic demands:

  • A standard GS1-128 shipping label is required with minimum grade quality of ‘B.’
  • GS1-128 carton numbers must be 20 digits long.
  • Standard shipping labels, 6” high by 4” wide, should be used.
  • Labels should be white with black lettering.
  • Font size & labels should be legible (not hand written) and EASY TO READ
    • Font size 24 is preferred
    • Minimum font size 12
  • Place the shipping label in the lower right hand corner of the long end of the carton.
  • If any additional labels (i.e., a carton content label) are needed, place it next to and to the left of the GS1-128 label.
  • Carton content labels should be used when required information can not fit on a GS1-128 label.
  • Information does not have to be duplicated on a label if it is shown near the label. IE Carton Markings.
