This isn't a question, but rather information I stumbled on this morning, that I thought others may be unaware of.

When printing a label, if you choose the one page label, and then check the "are your printing on a sticker" box, all that actually prints is the half page shipping label. The bottom half of the page is blank. 

This suits me since I print onto a label, and this saves wasting the other half of the page (or messing around so that it is not wasted), but, it may also suit those that are frugal with their printer ink and paper, and don't feel the need to include the "information" page with the book.

Thanks for sharing that. I will print my label that way next time.

I use the single page option all the time, but I actually print on a label. I have a huge stash of old airborne/DHL labels (they're just like the FedEx labels) and they work great. They went out of business so I don't feel guilty using them. I like the info section of the sheet and I try to wrap it on the book inside the plastic so that if the outside wrapper were damaged or completely fell off the package is still identifiable.

Like Linda, I prefer to use the info section as an emergency address, and circle the addy with a bright marker and place in inside the plastic underwrap with the book...JIC.

I often do that too since seeing it recommended here.
