  • For international orders, we ship using USPS or DHL or Fed Ex.

White-label & branding

Several white-label options are available so you can control your branding experience.

  • Packing slips — we print your custom packing slip to ship with each package
  • Packaging — we stock and use your packaging during fulfillment
  • From address — the "from" address of package can be customized to your company identity

These and other options are available for our high-volume customers. Please contact us for more details.

Split shipping

Automatic Prints supports bulk quotes and orders. When items of the same design (in one bulk order) ship to multiple addresses, printing will automatically be combined so volume discounts still apply.

Additionally, orders for multiple items shipping to the same address will automatically be combined into one shipping package whenever possible.

Split shipping incurs an additional $1 handling fee per address.

Third party shipping

We support custom shipping through USPS (Stamps.com), UPS, Fed Ex and DHL Global Mail third party billing accounts. Using a third party billing account also enables selection of exact shipping service used for mailing.

For high-volume customers with specialized fulfillment needs, we may be able to implement your shipping preferences and accounts. Please contact us.

International shipping

Orders can be shipped to most countries internationally. Shipping costs are calculated appropriately at quote time. Transit times are generally longer than domestic shipments by 5 business days, but occasionally take more than 15 business days.

If you are shipping more than 100 international shipments per day, we recommend setting up third party pickup with a DHL account. Please contact us for details.
