We only created this page to be used as a general guideline for you to follow so if you need any help creating and purchasing a prepaid return shipping label please call or email FedEx directly or visit a local FedEx Office near you.

Go to ==>

Then click on the Shipping tab ==>


FedEx Step1


Then click on the Create a Shipment tab on the drop-down menu ==>


FedEx Step2


Then click on the Ship Manager Lite Ship As a Guest link ==>


FedEx Step3


When you click on the expand arrow you will see this information appear ==>


FedEx Step3 -1


Then enter in the From Address fields: YOUR company name and/or YOUR name and YOUR address, phone, and email, and in the To Address fields: Put the name and address of who and where you want your documents mailed back to (the FROM and TO name and addresses can be exactly the same)  ==>


FedEx Step4


Then select the FedEx One Rate option ==>


FedEx Step5


Then select the FedEx Envelope package type ==>


FedEx Step6


Then select how fast (DO NOT choose the overnight first AM delivery option which FedEx guarantees delivery by 8:30am because our office does not open to 9am. Instead choose the 2nd morning delivery option which FedEx guarantees delivery by 10:30am) and on what date you want your documents delivered and FedEx will give you various price quotes. The declared value amount is up to you enter but please note FedEx only insures and reimburses you for FREE up to a $100 value in case they lose or destroy your documents.

If your order is over $100 with Apostille Texas you might want to buy the inexpensive extra insurance which only costs $3 for $100.01-$300 value and $1 for every additional $100 value over $300. ==>


FedEx Step7


Then enter your credit card payment information and make sure to enter your email address at the bottom of the form ==>


FedEx Step8


Then confirm your shipment information is correct. Make sure to check the box that says email a copy of my shipping label and then click the ship button ==>


FedEx Step9


Then click the print label button to print out the shipping label or save it as a PDF and then email or mail the label to us ==>


FedEx Step10


When asked for the return ship date just enter the approximate date that Apostille Texas will receive your documents in the mail or the date when you create the label. The date doesn’t matter at all because FedEx will reprint a new updated shipping label whenever we drop it off to them and prepaid labels do not expire.

When asked for the envelope weight just enter 8oz. When asked for the value of your shipment just enter $100 (you get $100 of free insurance with FedEx) or whatever extra amount you want to pay for in case your documents are lost by FedEx.

Then download the PDF shipping label that FedEx generates online and you can either email the PDF shipping label to us or you can print it out and mail it to us along with your documents. That’s it.
