I remember that one, but in the end, they weren't able to ship the furniture! ;)

Thanks, I will have to think of a way round it as I can't print it on a Tuesday. Maybe screenshot it?

You could print it to a PDF? In any case, Canada Post sends a link to print the label which is valid for 5 days once you make a Snap Ship shipment. There's no rush to print the label, just make the shipment.

That works for me then as there is no rush to do everything in the same day.

How big is one of these labels that you print?

Want to keep the box as small as possible but not so small that I won't be able to tape the label to it.

Anyone know how the extra charges are calculated for items over 5kg? Curious if it's only a few bucks extra to go from 5kg to 6kg or a lot more.

About half of a standard 8.5 x 11 page.

I think 12am EST. Last year the codes expired at 9pm PST. It's up on the site too now but not working as of yet. Might have to wait 40 minutes.
