All About ShipWorks Templates

As an online business owner, it’s important to think about how customers see your company. Shoppers want to buy from a business they can trust, and that goes beyond just offering a great product at a competitive price. One way to let them know that you’ve got your act together? Making sure anything you send to customers, whether print or via email, has a professional appearance and properly reflects your brand.

ShipWorks Templates

ShipWorks software makes this easy by providing pre-formatted and professionally designed documents, or templates. These templates are your primary way to export data from ShipWorks and contain text, graphics and layout functionality. It’s everything to get you started, including:

  • Shipment notification emails
  • Packing slips
  • Invoices
  • Reports


These pre-loaded templates are pre-formatted and ready to use once you input the appropriate data. Looking for ways to go beyond the basic templates and add your company’s personal touch? Our templates are completely customizable using the built-in template editor in ShipWorks. Some of the ways you can customize your ShipWorks include:

Single Scan Templates

ShipWorks recently introduced Single Scan, which provides a unique identifier for each order so you have the ability to use a barcode scanner to quickly pull up order details or automatically process a shipping label. ShipWorks version 5.11 or later includes invoice and packing slip templates that incorporate the Single Scan barcode.

You can use these templates to print invoices or packing slips featuring the order-specific barcode, which you can then scan to automatically print your shipping label.
