Can a UPS driver bring the shipping label?

    I ship my golf clubs often but don't have any "sticky" labels to print my shipping label on so I end up printing on normal paper and taping the heck out of it in hopes it stays attached to my golf travel bag. Is there a way for the UPS driver to bring a shipping label with him when he comes to pick up the clubs? Ideally the driver would also bring the luggage tag or "fly tag" that wraps around the handle of my golf traveling bag, but that is probably a lot to ask. Just curious as to if any of this is feasible or not. Thanks in advance.

    No. Tape will hold better than a "sticky label"

    Luggage tags are a good idea. You should buy some and tape the hell out of your label on it.

    As a fellow golfer, and a UPS employee, I would not ship my clubs unless they were in a hard case. Just sayin'.

    There is a UPS label "luggage tag" that you slip around the handle an attach the label to. But I agree with the above post. Hard case all the way.

    Sign up for a shipper account on and you can order shipping supplies, like labels, for free.

    If you do use a soft case, make sure you have a stiff arm in the bag. It will protect the clubs.

    I occasionally check mine as baggage when we fly to visit my BIL in Florida, and I have a piece of 3/4 inch PVC with a tennis ball on the top that is about an inch longer than my driver. Works great. The baggage handlers throw things just as hard as we do, but checked through baggage isn't handled (sent down conveyors) as much as shipping UPS.

    Sure. We can also caddy for you if you make a reservation in advance.

    If you are going to ship once per week or less, the easiest thing to do is go to The UPS Store and let them take care of it. Luggage tags and a hard case are the best way to go.

    Could also try this company. I've never used them but it looks interesting.
