Printing labels from Shipping

Below you'll find a tutorial teaching you how to set up and use the Peninsula Thermal Printer Driver to print UPS
shipping labels directly from the UPS website to your thermal printer on Mac.

You will only need to complete the following instructions once.

1. Setting up UPS shipping to print to your printer


On the UPS website click your name in the top right to access the menu.


Select Preferences from the menu.


Click Edit under the Shipping section.


Scroll down to the Printing section and expand it by clicking on it.


Ensure that Print Label Instructions and Print for all labels in a shipment are selected.
Do not select Use my UPS thermal printer to print labels as this will not work on a Mac


Click Save to save the changes

2. Download a PDF sample label

Copy the link below into your web browser and press return to download the sample label.

Or Click On it.

Make a note of where you have downloaded it to as you will need it later.

You can now use this to setup your labels.

3. Setting up your thermal printer for printing from the UPS website


Open the Thermal Utility.


Follow the onscreen steps until you reach the "Choose what applications you are printing from" step and select
"Web Browser (ie Safari, Chrome etc)".

Click the "Next" button.


Select "UPS Website" from the menu.


Click the "Next" button.


A window will open. Drag the PDF file we downloaded earlier onto the window and set the label size to the correct size of your labels.


Drag the image and use the controls at the bottom to correctly position the area you wish to print (the label section) onto the label.


When it is positioned correctly click save to save the extraction settings.


As this printer is now set up specifically for the UPS website we recommend giving it a different name.

You may install the same printer multiple times with different settings and a different name using the Thermal Utility allowing you
to set the extraction up for different websites and applications and simply choose the printer on the print dialog to print with those settings.
Click next when you are happy with the name.


Click Install printer.


The installation will take a few seconds and then the installation complete message will show. The printer is now installed and you
may close the Thermal Utility.

The setup is now complete simply return to the UPS website and print your labels selecting the printer
we just installed.
