Packing Slip Design

Colin Updated by Colin

This article describes the configuration options for ShipStream's automatically generated Packing Slips. Packing Slips are always generated at the time they are downloaded or printed so you can update the configuration and re-download the Packing Slip any time to see the new result.

Navigate to System > Configuration > Packing Slip Design and choose the correct configuration scope. Packing Slip designs can be modified at the Merchant and Brand scopes allowing you to present a different design for each to the customer.

General

Default Paper Size

The Default Paper Size will be used except for when a different paper size is chosen in the "Print Documents" dialog.

Font Family

The "Standard" fonts do not have to be embedded in the PDF files and are therefore more efficient and faster to print so are recommended if it is not necessary to use special characters and symbols.

Choosing "Square Logo" will position the order information to the right of the logo:

Choosing "Wide Logo" will position the order information below the logo:

  • Images larger than 60KB will be compressed and/or shrunk to reduce file size to 60KB.
  • 8-bit PNG without alpha channel is recommended for most logos.
  • All images are scaled by height to fit assigned space.
  • Add white padding to adjust size and position of logo.
Header Text

The Header Text can be positioned left, center or right in the header text area. For the Wide Logo layout the Header Text will be on the opposite side of the logo, or below the logo if "Center".

Greetings

The "Greetings" appear just below the items list and can be controlled with three config fields: Top Greeting, Default Greeting and Bottom Greeting.

The Default Greeting will be replaced by the Packing Slip Custom Greeting order field, if it is specified, so that each order can have a unique greeting in addition to default greeting above or below.

A Default Greeting is shown when there is no Packing Slip Custom Greeting on the Order. This may be provided from the User Interface, API or Scripts.

At the Global and Warehouse scope you can customize the footer with features that may be useful operationally.
