I've used PayPal shipping since they started offering it.. all of the sudden my labels are printing out a little smaller than a 3x5 card! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/dizzy.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Dizzy">:<br><br>
Dh is at the PO now to see if they'll accept my tiny shipping label... we need to ship an eBay transaction. I don't even know if they'll take it or not.<br><br>
Any ideas of why it's shipping so small? All my printer settings seem to be fine (and I put everything back to default to no avail) and everything else I print has printed correctly.<br><br><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/headscratch.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="headscratch"><br><br>
TIA

This happened to me last year!<br><br>
I did a lot of handwriting the labels but that delivery confirmation was so expensive!<br><br>
I finally "lied" to the computer and told it I had the z whatever label printer and it works finally! It can only print down the middle of a sheet of paper but it works!

Have you checked the browser settings? I was having a similar problem with printing labels in Firefox. It turned out the problem was not in the printer settings, but in the Firefox settings. It seemed like splitting hairs to me, but getting that changed suddenly had my shipping label printed out correctly.

I will have to try printing in IE and see if that fixes it.

Kristina- it IS a Mozilla issue. I just printed a label with IE and it worked just fine. I'm not sure what settings to change in Firefox, but it's easy enough to just use IE when printing paypal labels. Thanks for the heads up! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngbiggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="orange big grin">
