You can print a no value, test print of your stamp label before committing to printing the label with postage added. Follow the below steps to add your label before performing a test print.

Each postage sheet contains 14 blank stamp labels. SendPro keeps track of how many labels you print so that you can print on the next available sticker each time. You can also mark labels as damaged to avoid printing on them or use a new sheet at any time. Labels must be printed on compatible SendPro postage sheets, which are available in our online shop.
