Make print larger

Your computer software (ie, Windows) will determine the print size, not the printer. The printer just takes the image from the computer and prints it. As example, you can increase the text font size of your document to make the text larger on your printer.

How do i make my print larger on my ip2600 cannon printer?

Typically this type of adjustment is a software change, in essence, the printer is a dumb unit in terms of print size and prints what you see, as you see it.

I have a 105SL connected directly to a pc using Bar Tender. It takes for ever to print and when it does the printed label is 1/4 larger than what I specified. keep it simple, has I am not an IT expert.....

Ok...two items to check:
1. slow print can be caused by using True-Type fonts like Arial, Times New Roman, etc...these fonts do not reside in the firmware of the printer so Bartender has to download the fonts to the printer's memory hence the long print time. Change any text fonts to Zebra's internal fonts which you should be able see as a choice from Bartender.

2. If the print is larger than you expect, then you are using a printer driver that is not correct for the dpi (dots per inch) of the printer than have. If your printer is a 203dpi printer but you use a 300dpi printer driver, then your print will be larger that you expect. Bartender will format the fields for 300dpi but because size is larger on a 203dpi, the print will be larger. The Z105SL comes in both sizes, 203 or 300. Just verify your printer to the driver being used.

Hope that helps !

How do I get my printer to print in larger text

You need to change the size of the text on your computer in order for it to print in larger text. You didn't say what you are using to print text so it's kind of hard to tell you exactly what to do. If you are using Microsoft Word or almost any word processor, you will need to change your font size to something bigger. If you are changing something that you've already typed, you can highlight or select what you have typed and change it's font size. Hopefully this is enough to help you. If you need further help, please let us know what software you are using to create your documents. Good luck!

Assuming you are using a Windows computer, the size of text printed by the printer is usually set by the program doing the printing, not by the printer itself. If you are using Microsoft Word, for example, choose Format - Font and then select the Font size. If this is no help to your problem, post a new comment with more information on what program or utility you are using to do the printing.

Text printing now slightly larger than it used to be

Since the printer is only doing what it is told to do, it is my opionion that the data in the stream that goes to the printer has changed slightly.

Not knowing if you use 3rd party software to produce your labels, or if you manually write your code, take a look at the reference manual for programming if it is the latter and look for the opaque setting for that type and line of text. If you use a 3rd party app, you may need to contact them about the same type of setting.

This opaque type setting should allow the space around your characters to overlap without creating that box effect. Kind of like a gif with a transparent background.

Good luck

Printing photos

That is called pixelation and is usually the result of enlarging a photo, whether it be resized larger on the computer or printed at a larger size than it's original pixel dimensions.

Check your printer settings for a setting like "resize photo to fit paper" and uncheck it. Or print from a photo that is larger than the paper and it will reduce the size without any pixelation.

With digital photos you can always go smaller than the original, but rarely ever larger.
