I have Printmaster 10 and 17. On 10, I can print to the edges of the labels and others things, on 17 I can't. I know that I reconfigured 10 to do this, but it was years ago and I can't remember the step needed to get this up and running. Can you help me?

Custom Paper Wizard PrintMaster® 17 Gold and Platinum include a Custom Paper Wizard that allows you to add new or unsupported paper stock to PrintMaster® for printing labels, stickers, envelopes, half-fold greeting cards, note cards, business cards and postcards. The remainder of this note describes how to use the Custom Paper Wizard. Follow the procedure below to add a new or unsupported paper stock to PrintMaster® 17 Gold or Platinum using the Custom Paper Wizard.

NOTE: The options that appear in the Custom Paper Wizard vary depending on the project type for which you are creating new paper stock.

  1. In the PrintMaster® Design Workspace, click Tools from the menu bar, select Custom Paper Wizard and click New Custom Paper. The Custom Paper Wizard window will open.
  2. In the Select Stock Type: list box, select the appropriate project type (Label, Sticker, Business Card, Envelope, 1/2-Fold Greeting Card, Note Card or Postcard) and click Next.
  3. If creating a Label or Sticker paper stock, select the label type. An example of the selected label type will appear on the right.
  4. Click Next.
  5. In the screen that appears, select the similar stock type and enter the paper height, width and margins (if instructed to do so).

    NOTE: The Example box at the bottom of the Custom Paper Wizard window will explain what information is needed for the selected field (e.g., Paper Width, Left Margin, etc.) with both text and a diagram. The Example box on the left side of the Custom Paper Wizard window will show an example of the new paper stock as the fields are completed.

  6. Depending on the paper stock, the "Contains mid-page perforation" box may be active. If the paper stock that is added has a mid-page perforation, click once in the empty box to check it.
  7. Enter a Name for the new paper stock in the Name of stock: field and click Next. This name will identify the added stock type and will appear when creating a new project (e.g., Label, 1/2-Fold Greeting Card, etc.).

    NOTE: If adding a new paper stock for an Envelope project type, click Finish. A message will appear indicating that the new stock has been added. Click OK. The new envelope paper stock can be used when creating a new Envelope project.

  8. The next screen or screens that show will depend on the project type for which the new paper stock is added. Enter the needed information and click Finish. A message will appear stating that the new paper stock has been added.
  9. Click OK.
  10. To access the new paper stock, create a new project that uses the stock type (Label, 1/2-Fold Greeting Card, etc.) and select the name of the new stock entered in Step 7 (above) from the available stock list.
NOTE: If the paper stock that is added does not display in the list, click or go to Custom Paper Stock Does Not Display (Technical Note ID: 43399) for additional information.

E260 will not print labels


This printer has capability to print on labels. Here are some tips when printing on labels:


· Use labels designed specifically for laser printers. Check with the manufacturer or vendor to verify that the labels can withstand temperatures up to 210°C (410°F) without sealing, excessive curling, wrinkling, or releasing hazardous emissions.

· Labels can be printed at a higher fusing temperature up to 220°C (428°F) if Label Weight is set to Heavy.

· Select this setting using the Embedded Web Server, or from the printer control panel Paper menu. Label adhesives, face sheet (printable stock), and topcoats can withstand up to 25-psi (172-kPa) pressure without delaminating, oozing around the edges, or releasing hazardous fumes.

· Do not use labels with slick backing material.

· Use full label sheets. Partial sheets may cause labels to peel off during printing, resulting in a jam. Partial sheets also contaminate the printer and the cartridge with adhesive, and could void the printer and cartridge warranties.

· Do not use labels with exposed adhesive.

· Do not print within 1 mm (0.04 in.) of the edge of the label, of the perforations, or between die-cuts of the label.

· Be sure adhesive backing does not reach to the sheet edge. Zone coating of the adhesive at least 1 mm (0.04 in.) away from edges is recommended. Adhesive material contaminates the printer and could void the warranty.

· If zone coating of the adhesive is not possible, remove a 2-mm (0.06-in.) strip on the leading and driver edge, and use a non-oozing adhesive.

· Portrait orientation works best, especially when printing bar codes.

· Use only paper label sheets. Vinyl, pharmacy, and dual-sided labels are not supported.

Tip

Keep labels from coming off


It seems like its inevitable, you print your own labels at home and then a few months or even weeks later those labels are starting to peel off. With one small tip you can keep those labels from coming off. What I have been doing with the labels that I put on my kids school supplies is rounding off the corners. After I print the label and trim it down to size I just trim off the corners to make them round and it works wonders. This works simply because when you have a sharp corner it is easy for stuff to get in under the label and then before you know it the whole thing is coming off. By rounding the edges you make it harder for stuff to get under it.

Printing text with no margins


Hello,

You need to make sure that your printer is capable of doing this. Most of them are not. If your printer is definitely capable of printing "full bleed", then there should be an option in the print dialog box that allows you to specify printing to the edges.

Prints out 2 labels at once


I've seen this be due to dirty sensor or misconfigured media setting.  Clean the sensor in the middle of the edge on the inside and outside of the printer, then if still having trouble - Inside the printer it should tell you that if you are having printing trouble:
  1. turn off the printer
  2. Hold down the feed button
  3. turn on the printer and at the third red flash release the feed button
  4. it will then feed some pages print some info and ask you to hit feed again to exit dump
  5. hit feed again and it will say exiting dump
You have just made it reconfigure media, and it may know when to stop feeding now.

Printer skipping labels


Your labels are narrow, and might not be aligned beneath the gap sensor.

Remove the cover and make sure the labels are loaded all the way to the left (toward the inside wall of the printer.) There's a "label Guide" that keeps the labels from wandering to the right. There are two thumbscrews beneath the label path. The thumbscrew toward the back of the printer lets you adust the "label guide", which keeps the labels from wandering away from the sensor (and the proper printhead position).

Move the lever clockwise to open the printhead and adjust the guide so it is slightly snug against the labels but so that you can pull the labels without much effort.
The thumbscrew towards the front of the printer allow you to position the gap sensor to detect the leading edge and trailing edge of the label, so the printer can . If your printer used to work OK, this might be in the proper place, but if it is loose, slide the thumbscrew left or right to center the sneosr between the edges of the label.
