Label font specifications

The font you use for your labels can help speed up the processing of your inventory in Amazon's fulfillment network. Choose a font that clearly distinguishes letters from numbers.

For optimal processing in Amazon's fulfillment network, Amazon recommends the following:

  • Use a font that clearly distinguishes a zero from the letter "O". For example, use a slashed zero.
  • Use a font that clearly distinguishes the number one from a lowercase letter "L" and an uppercase letter "I".
  • Unless otherwise noted, Amazon recommends that you use the normal font weight (not bold) and that the font size be 8 point.
