Some shipping platforms only provide you with a full page (8.5" x 11") document. 


Frequently, they use half of the page for the shipping label and the other half for receipt or packing slip.


While there are many ways to split this page into a 4" x 6" label size, here is our favorite method:


Using Adobe "Take a Snapshot"

1.Download Adobe Reader if you do not have it already from Adobe website (

2.Save your label as a PDF file.

3.Open the file in Adobe Reader

4.Rotate the label if needed by going to View -> Rotate View

5.Go to Edit -> Take a Snapshot

6.Click and drag the box over your label

7.Go to File -> Print 

8.If preview looks good, click "Print"











Note: If you are shipping more than a few labels, you would benefit from using a commercial solution that create 4 x 6 labels in one-click. See this article: How do I generate labels?
