I was looking everywhere last night for a good printable "LIVE FISH" shipping/ transport label. I looked everywhere. So I Decided to make one :D

I wanted to share it with everyone else. If someone here ships their fish or corals, you can print this on your printer to sticker paper & slap it on your shipping box. I made two sizes, one paper with two, and one with four.

Have Fun & Enjoy.

Odds are this sticker will cause the package to be rejected. Unless you have a special account with the shipper most will not allow live animals or saltwater in side the package.

They do allow it, you sometimes need more expensive insurance, and some kind of other fee. I shipped fish before. They don't care, they are glad that I add LIVE FISH Labels.

Shipping Live fish is like shipping live plants or flowers. If they don't let you, you just got one of those pissey clerks :rotflmao:

And here is USPS

Mailing Live Animals
Customers shipping live animals must ensure all packaging requirements are met. Live animal shipments may be presented at any Post Office; however, the service standard may be affected depending on the availability of transportation from the drop-off site.

Customers sending Express Mail shipments containing live animals should expect a 2-3 day transport of their shipment. Shipping early in the week is suggested, and holiday weeks may have limited acceptance days and times. Express Mail postage will not be refunded unless the delivery or attempted delivery is more than three days after the day of mailing.
