Pick Lists are great because they'll let you know what quantity of items will be needed to fulfill one or more orders.

ShipStation makes it really easy to create a pick lists from several locations throughout the web app. Typically, you'll have the option to create a pick list wherever you have the option to print!

For example, select one or more orders on the Orders tab, click Print in the action bar, and then choose Pick List.

There are similar options available on the Order Sidebar ...

in the Label Batch Status pop-up ...

You've got a few customization options available to you as well, and they're all available by going to your Account Settings (the gear icon in the top right), clicking Printing, then Printing Setup, looking for the Pick List row, and then clicking on the Document Options. You should see a window like this:
