When you sign up for Pirate Ship, YARRrrr gettin' access to our easy-to-use website, the cheapest USPS® and UPS® parcel shipping services, and the most pirate-y customer support on the seven seas!

Pirate Ship only offers shipping labels at deeply discounted rates

  • USPS & UPS Label Purchases Only: Other companies may offer additional software, scales, or printers, but one of the ways we keep Pirate Ship so affordable is by focusing on the label purchasing experience 😉 At this time, we don't provide users with a printer, scale, or any other items.

  • Items You May Need: To get the best experience with Pirate Ship, we strongly encourage you to get a printer, scale, and packaging that you feel comfortable using before purchasing any labels.

    • You’ll need to weigh and measure YARrrrr items in your preferred packaging before calculating rates on our website, and print labels using your own printer.

  • No Fancy Supplies Needed: Fortunately, you don't need to buy any fancy shipping supplies to use our site 🎉

    • Any scale can be used as long as it displays the weight in both pounds and ounces, and you can print labels from any desktop computer using regulARRrrr printer paper!

Some resources for shipping supplies

There are several websites that offer options for packaging and packing materials, depending on what you're looking for and how much you need.

  • No Physical Software: Since Pirate Ship is a web-based service, we won't send you any physical software either 💿 You'll be ready to start shipping as soon as you've created an account!

  • Scale & Printer Recommendations: If you're in the market for a scale or printer, you can check out our top recommendations here 🖨️
