HEROLABEL compostable shipping labels are made with natural adhesive. They complete your No-Plastic shipping process!

These shipping labels are perfect to print your customers' shipping addresses and work with direct thermal printers including our Hero Shipping Label Printer

Previously, you had to peel off labels before composting. This is no longer the case! Introducing HEROLABEL rolls! These labels are compostable.

They are branded so that your customers know that they are compostable. We also have our NEW Express Post design so you no longer need to apply plastic Express Post tape to your packages!

Our HEROLABEL rolls got an upgrade! The adhesive is way more adhesive-y and sticks a lot better to most surfaces! They still are completely compostable.

PLEASE NOTE: If you have used our labels in the past, you may notice our newer labels have a slightly shinier finish which improves direct thermal label printing performance. 


  • 250 labels per roll.
  • Each label is 100(W) x 149(L)mm.
  • Core size of 40mm. 
  • Perforated between each label for easy hand tearing.
  • Note: International express shipments can generally be printed on the Hero Printer using standard sized A6 (100x150mm) labels like our HEROLABELs. However, economy and standard international shipments can only be printed using A4 printers, and this is a limitation from Australia Post. It's best to check this link to make sure your account or shipping platform can print A6-sized international labels if this is required. 

Printing Template for Word:

Compatible printers:
HEROLABEL rolls work seamlessly with Hero Printer and other direct-thermal printers which can have a label width of 100mm or more. When selecting a new direct-thermal shipping label printer, simply ensure:
- Printer is direct-thermal
- Printer handles a label width of 100mm or more.
- Printer accepts label rolls with 40mm cores and doesn't require any other fixtures.

Please note: these are not suitable for Dymo 4XL printers, as Dymo restricts customers to purchasing their own branded labels which are not compostable. 

Important information about our compostable HEROLABEL adhesive:

The compostable adhesive used on our HEROLABEL rolls is non-toxic and safe for composting. This also means the adhesive is not as aggressive as toxic adhesives which aren't compostable. HEROLABELs have been designed and specifically tested to work with our HEROPACK shipping mailers which have a flat surface. If you're shipping with cardboard cartons, it's best to trial 1 roll of HEROLABELs first to ensure they provide a strong hold on your cartons (some cartons have more uneven surfaces than others).

Here is the ideal technique we have found to work perfectly using HEROLABELs:

1. Lay the HEROPACK mailer on a flat surface BEFORE inserting your products.

2. Apply the HEROLABEL and flatten out with your hands/fist to achieve a good application, especially on the edges and corners. Be sure to run your finger over the edges to stick the label down completely.

3. Insert the products into your HEROPACK mailer as usual.

4. Seal the HEROPACK as usual.

After 5-10 minutes the compostable adhesive on the HEROLABEL reaches maximum strength. 

Issues may arise when the product is inserted first and then the labels applied afterwards (as the surface is not flat for the label to stick perfectly).

      Import duties: Orders placed outside of Australia will be classed as an import in the recipient country. As such, you will need to pay the associated import duties and taxes required to clear customs in your country. The shipping carrier assigned to your shipment will contact you using the details on your order when placed. If import duties are not paid by the recipient as required, the shipment will be diverted to commercial composting facilities for disposal and cannot be returned. No refunds will apply in these cases either.


      Change of mind: If you have purchased the wrong size, or no longer need your mailers, you may be able to return them for a store credit within 14 days of purchase. Due to the renewable ingredients used and shelf life of our mailers, no change-of-mind returns can be accepted under any circumstances after this period. We have a strict returns process to ensure all returns are received correctly and can be re-sold to other customers. Change of mind returns are also subject to handling and restocking fees and the original shipping cost being deducted from any store credit. If you need to return your mailers, please contact us for further instructions.

      Product issues: Sometimes things don't go to plan. Rest assured we will ensure a fast resolution which can include product replacements, store credits and refunds. If you have any product issues whatsoever, please contact us for further instructions. Generally, we will request photos or a video of any issues to help provide the fastest resolution.

      Pre-Order Information:

      Occasionally, our products could be out of stock and move to a pre-order listing. This will be noted when purchasing the products and will also be noted in your order confirmation alongside any pre-order items.

      No Split Shipments: Please note that if pre-order items are purchased together with regular items which are in stock, the entire order will be on hold until the pre-order stock is available for shipping (we cannot partially ship orders). If you wish to place a pre-order as well as purchase available items, it's best to purchase separately to avoid delays in shipping your order.

      You will receive a shipping tracking notification as soon as your order has been dispatched. If you have any questions, please message us for assistance.
