Zebra TLP 2844 Controlling the font size w/iSeries??

How can you change the font size on a label when printing from the iSeries?

Posted by on

  • Anonymous Sep 08, 2008

    the print on the label comes out in 2 different sizes. the writing I put on it is fine, but the serial number under the barcode is too small.

    The specific problem I have does not involve a barcode at all. I'm printing mailing labels, but cannot control the font size or any other print characteristics. But thanks anyway.

For Burgymon,

Check the driver you are using. I would recommend the ZebraDesigner Driver v1.3.08 if you are printing from Windows.

What fonts are you using? The printer has specific printer resident fonts, most of which are monospaced. It will also print any PC resident fonts, treating them as graphics.

Hi Burgymon,

The font that is used under the barcode will use the last font properties described prior to the barcode in the output. You may want to suppress the human readable option and create a separate text field to display the text version of the barcode contents.

Tlp 2844 printer is callibrating is proper but not getting the print in stickers & checked the ribbon.


You need to set the label size in the driver or it will not layout on the calibrated label correctly. the default zebra size is 2x4 so if you have a smaller label it will print across 2 labels as the driver thinks it has a 4 in long label

Zebra TLP 2844-Z Test page print within Win XP


This printer requires special software to print labels with. It uses a unique PCL language to work with. Thats why when you use these printers with Fedex or UPS software, it typically downloads forms first before working.

Zebra used to see a label designer program to work with it. You might want to check with them to see if they still carry it.
