Printing USPS shipping to adhesive labels is not as intuitive as I thought. Does anyone print shipping to adhesive labels?

I am using a laser printer.

yes, but I use pirate ship, not usps directly.

I'm using this paper from amazon: https://www.amazon.com/MFLABEL-Adhesive-...ing+labels

Staples has 1/2 sheet labels (or I thought they did). They don't work?

I just use plain paper and use clear tape to laminate the label to the package.

Thank you andrewjs18 and ShadowsDad. I did buy some but they are too big - oops (8.5 x 5.5). Essentially the size of a half sheet of regular paper. Going to swap that out with something along the lines of 6x4, but why not something a little smaller(?). I've printed UPS labels from their site to regular paper in the natural size and came out to be about the size of a credit card.

If I print a USPS label from Paypal or from USPS site I'm looking for it to print at the designated place on the sheet of labels.

I understand Amazon and big retailers using adhesive labels - labor efficient and cheap in massive volumes.

I agree with ShadowsDad - for most people the 1 cent plain piece of paper and 10 cents of clear tape is really cost effective and less printer issues.
