Gone are the days when people spent days writing or typing their correspondence churning letters and documentation besides writing names and addresses on envelopes, packages and cartons to make them ready for delivery.

Office automation has brought about a massive transition in the outlook of the office owner albeit it has taken decades to reach at this stage.
The mailing desk in any commercial organization is considered to one of the busiest departments with loads of mail to be sent to various contacts, clients, prospective customers and business associates. Ever since computers have replaced the age old typewriters, mailing has become one of the smoothest operations. Mailing labels have proved to be of immense help to the harried mailing person, who does not have to spend hours and hours typing out addresses on envelopes, packages containing documents. Mailing labels come in a large variety where they can easily be customized to meet the specific requirements of a customer.
Mailing labels offer the advantage of legibility and clarity in writing of addresses which ensure that the documents or communication reaches the addresses without any delay. Mailing labels having an adhesive back prove to be advantageous since they can be easily pasted on to the envelope, package and cartons. The superior quality of the adhesive used on the mailing labels ensures that they remain stuck for a longer period of time and are able to withstand rough mishandling by the delivery person.
Mailing labels with return addresses of senders ensure that non delivered mail is returned to the sender promptly to avoid leakage of confidential and critical information contained in the package which may prove to be detrimental to the interests of the business organization. However, there are organizations that who prefer to include their company's logo in print on the mailing labels along with a single line slogan of the company. These mailing labels help in ease of identification of the mail especially when sorting takes place. A corporate logo on the mailing labels along with the corporate message reflects not only the aesthetic sense of the company; it also portrays the professionalism of the organization in general. While there are vendors who supply customized mailing labels, it is essential that orders for specific labels are place well in advance to receive them on time since manufacturing and delivery of labels may take days or even weeks to deliver.
