    Morning all

    Looking at Zebra label printer and have a question to anyone who has one...

    Currently we print our labels on a4 sheets 6 labels per page but looking at getting a zebra printer my question is if I have a single label template in word can I print this to the label printer just like I’d print it to a normal printer?

    Yes.

    We have a zebra for printing courier labels, but also use it to print labels from word too.

    What you need to do is get the brother label software which is awesome

    And then use that with the zebra printer

    I really wish Zebra would come out with a proper mac driver.

    I use a Zebra for our labels and its great, but I find the software crap in comparison to the Brother equivalent.

    I just got the printer yesterday had a play with it one issue I have is they don’t seem to print very clear especially with ppi labels on you can only just make out my ppi number anyone got any suggestions could the brother software help?

    Even basic text seems a bit grainy

    Thanks

    Mike

    Are you printing at the correct scale?

    I’ve made the label about the same size so not much scaling and printing at 100% come out on a4 exactly same size perfect via normal printer

    Could be an incorrect setting. Try this solution.

    Thanks for that I’ll give that a try did google earlier and it suggested this but I couldn’t find where it was I was looking in zebra settings not the windows print settings.

    Thank you fingers crossed this sorts it
