If you print a label twice do you get charged twice? I misplaced my label.

Just to verify - you're talking about the regular PBS mailing wrapper with the address, not PBS postage or anything like that? Because I think there are issues with those, but I have never used them so can't say for sure.

You should be able to reprint a PBS postage label without being recharged as lon gas you haven't marked it mailed.  There might be an issue if you've marked it mailed already and bought PBS postage.

Also if you bought just the DC and then want to reprint with PBS postage-you will lose the money for hte original DC.  They can't just add postage to that.

If you purchase postage via PBS you wil only be charged once no matter how many times you print the wrapper/label.  I've reprinted lots of times. 

ETA - even if you've marked it mailed, it's not a problem.

Be aware, that although reprinting Preprinted Postage wrapper labels is free, you will need to run through all the steps that you went through when you first generated the wrapper, so you will go through the "estimated cost" screen again and it will LOOK as though it is going to charge you again.  Don't worry.  It  won't!  There is an easy-to-miss popup window at the end that tells you that you were not charged again, and if you review your PBS Money log, (click on blue Money link at the top of any page) you can easily verify that you were only charged for one wrapper.  (Another thing to be aware of: PBS Preprinted postage charges show up as two items in your Money Registry: one charge for the postage costs and one charge for the fees, so two line items for one wrapper transaction showing up.)
