My favorite are the Avery labels. The newer labels (in the last year or two) stick exceptionally well. As for software, I simply use MS Word's label templates.

I used Avery 15 years ago, they were decent then but I had to use Avery software.  Now I remember MS has templates, thanks. Do you know off hand if Avery has Amazon size labels?

The biggest I use is Size 5163, which equates to 2" x 4", but larger sizes are available. Take a look here.

Is it for returning Amazon packages? The UPS Store will print them free for you. All you have to do is show the return code on your smartphone. I'm fortunate to live near a Kohl's dept store. All I have to do is bring in the product with the Amazon return code. They box it, print the label and ship it back, and then give me a 25% in-store coupon.

Not anymore. Locally Amazon has set up a distribution hub that also handles returns, 40 minutes away.  The last 2 Amazon returns via UPS cost me $9.00 and 7.00.  I had to print the label on my machine and take it to UPS, after I told Amazon I didn't want to use the return hub.  And I had to repackage the items.  Amazon changes quickly.....
