Stamp sheets not aligned properly when printed in PitneyShip, PitneyShip Pro, and PitneyShip Enterprise

If your stamp sheets are not aligned properly, you may need to adjust your browser settings.
Products affected: PitneyShip®, PitneyShip® Pro, PitneyShip® Enterprise


When printing stamps, the stamp images are not properly aligned with the stamp labels on the stamp sheet.


The web browser's print settings need to be adjusted.


Solution 1: Make sure that you are using the correct stamp sheet

Older sheets with 25 stamps (SL-SPM01) have serial numbers that start with "A". These older stamp sheets are no longer sold, but can still be used if you have them. Newer sheets with 20 stamps (SL-SPM11) have serial numbers that start with a character other than "A". The software automatically adjusts the format based on the serial number you enter. The number of stamps on the sheet preview should match the number of stickers on your sheet.

Solution 2:  If printing from a web browser, adjust your browser settings

In PitneyShip or PitneyShip Pro, this solution only applies if you are using "Print to PDF".
