Our Brand

These standards have been developed to ensure consistency wherever the ShipStation brand exists.


Our Logo

This is our logo. It is shown below in its primary form. There are two versions to ensure optimum legibility. The one on the left should be used when backgrounds are white. The version on the right should be used on dark backgrounds.


Our Icon

It’s our logo stacked. Use it only when and where space is limited (ex. when you require an image with 1:1 ratio or a square format).


Monotone Logos

Use our main logo when possible. These can be used as a substitute, only when absolutely necessary. Use the one on the left on light backgrounds and the one on the right on dark backgrounds.

Adelle Sans is used in a very limited way in the product (only in the top navigation and sidebar and titles), and as large, bold headers for marketing material. Please only use Adelle Sans Bold for headlines marketing materials (H1 and H2). Roboto is the workhorse typeface, used for body copy, captions, and everywhere in the UI: data in grids, forms, buttons, and labels.

We describe ShipStation customers as Users in the context of the app and as Merchants or Online Sellers in the context outside of the app. Unless we are talking about their customers as well, in which case we’d say our user’s or merchant’s customers.


There are a few ways to write out “e-commerce”. At ShipStation we use the spelling: ecommerce, unless at the beginning of a sentence in which case it is Ecommerce.

Oxford Comma

The Oxford Comma is the final comma in a list of things. Always use it.

Mission Statement

Wherever you sell. However you ship. Exceptionally efficient.
