How To Reprint USPS Label Using Click-N-Ship & Other Postage-Service Providers

It is no longer news that you need to print shipping labels if you wish to ship packages to customers via USPS. However, you no longer need to visit the post office to get a shipping label if you know how to print or reprint them online. 

While this service (printing or reprinting) is free, labels won’t be accepted unless you have paid for postage. Did your shipping label go missing or appear damaged? 

Read this guide to find out how to reprint USPS shipping labels via the Click-N-Ship portal and other third-party postage providers. You will also discover if labels expire and if you will get a refund for an unused label. 

How to Reprint the USPS Label 

The best way to print or reprint a USPS label is via Click-N-Ship. Below are the 2 ways to go about it: 

Method 1 (reprinting immediately)

  1. After creating a label, you should get a “Label Completed” message. 
  2. Click the “Reprint This Label” link next to the “Label Completed” notification. 
  3. You will see a reprint label dialog with terms and conditions. 
  4. Check the boxes to agree to these terms and click the “Reprint” tab.

Please note that: 

  • You can only reprint a USPS shipping label once after printing it initially. You must also wait up to 24 hours from the initial printing to reprint.
  • You must mail the package on the shipping date selected during label generation. Failure to ship the package on this date will render it stale. You will have to print a new label and pay new postage. 
  • Mailing options such as Priority Mail and select services may feature free tracking. Signature confirmation may be provided at a discounted price. 

What Kind of Printer and Paper Should You Use to Print Click-N-Ship Labels?

Laser printer or a high-quality inkjet printer and white paper or self-adhesive labels. Your inkjet printer should meet the 600 dots-per-inch (DPI) recommendation

What If You Accidentally Reprint a Label?

Shipping labels generally have a unique number or identifiers. Since your postage is linked with these numbers, it will be retained regardless of how many times you reprint. 

You only need to use one of these labels because they cannot be used multiple times. USPS has a system that detects duplicate postage and may charge you for fraud. 

Do USPS Shipping Labels Expire?

Shipping labels are only valuable on the shipping date. Failure to submit a package to USPS on the shipping date you chose while creating the label means you can no longer use it. 

In other words, it has expired, and packages (with such labels) will be returned if you try to mail them. File for a refund immediately. 

Will USPS Refund for Unused Labels? 

USPS refunds customers for unused shipping labels. The whole process may require up to 14 days for proper investigation. Please note that USPS will not grant any refund claims after 60 calendar days from the date the label was printed. 

Third-party postage providers such as, Shippo, and eBay also pay refunds for unused labels. Shippo issues refunds automatically after 30 days. 


Does USPS refund for late deliveries? 

Only Priority Mail Express packages guarantee refunds. This means you must be patient if your package experiences a shipping label-related issue and is not under Priority Mail Express. 

Do you need a shipping label for USPS?

Yes, as long as you are mailing an item weighing over 13 ounces. 

Can you handwrite a shipping label?

You can handwrite the shipping address on a label as long as it is legible. However, you will still need the carrier’s barcode, which you cannot handwrite. 

How do you get USPS to print your label? 

On the Click-N-Ship portal, go to Extra Services and choose Label Delivery – Outbound. USPS will print the label and deliver it to you for free. 


There are various (easy) ways to reprint USPS labels. The advantage Click-N-Ship has over others is that it allows you to reprint labels until the close of business of the shipping date. 

You should also note that shipping dates do not appear on the labels. However, it does not mean USPS does not know when it will expire. USPS automatically records the shipping date you chose while printing the label.
