blank address labels Address labels are available in several sizes and shapes, depending upon their usage.  Return address labels are small; personal and business mailing labels are generally about an inch high.  International mailing labels are often slightly higher to accommodate a country field, and shipping labels are generally the largest size, because they often include space for both "ship from" and "ship to" addresses.

Personal address labels generally provide space for about 25 to 30 characters of text per line, which will accommodate most first and last name combinations and personal addresses.  Business address labels are wider, providing space for about 35 to 40 characters per line.  These wider labels can accommodate most business names and business addresses.
