You Have to set label size in the printers driver. A hundred diferent label sizes can be used but the driver must know the size to layout the bitmap correctly

Goto printers and faxes then right click on your zebra printer driver. Left click properties and then left click the advanced tab, then left click printing defaults button. In the zebra designer driver size is on this page. The Zebra Universal driver you click a few levels deeper by clicking paper output then paper size. If your size is not listed in the drop down arrow then click customize, then highlight user defigned on the upper left off the screen and enter your correct label size.

Please can you say me how to set correct margin size for Printer Zebra Xiiii plus


choose the "View > View Options" Menu with the BT document open and now enable the "Show Unprintable Region" checkbox. Will you now see the unprintable width margins covering part of the left margin of your label? If yes, then this means that due to the unprintable width of the printer you cannot print on this are (this the related to the printers print head tolerance).
With regards to the not being able to print on the bottom side, this could be a page setup issue. Please attach your BT document to this forum topic by using the "More Reply Options" button.

Zebra 105sl - printer does not print correct size


This sounds like a mismatch between the printer settings in the print driver and the label settings in your label design software.
In the printer driver - printer preferences- set the physical label dimentions.
Also set the printing defaults to the same settings.
In you design program ensure your label size is the same as the printer driver and also you can set the print preferences in the same program, ensure they all match and hey presto it works. But if nt then contact www,lancerlabels.co.uk, they will talk you through the problem on the phone. They will not charge for the advice.

Doesnt print all the way to bottom of label


I had the same issue with my Zebra printer. Make sure your margins are set correctly, and you have the correct size label selected. This fixed my problem.

Intermec PC4 is skipping over blank labels when it prints. It prints one label then skips over 3 or 4 labels before it prints the next one


Make sure that the label is not larger than the printable area, carriage returns and spaces count as part of the label too. Also make sure that in the printer properties you didn't set the page width wider or higher than the actual label. Especially using MS Word, you may have to adjust the label slightly smaller to compensate for margin, header, and footer settings. Also be careful of mail merges which merge data larger than the viewable area on the label.

Cannot print avery labels, get message the margins of section 1 are set outside the printable page, or will run thru printer , printing complete get blank page


I assume this error is occuring in Microsoft Word.
  1. Create a new document, with a full page of the label you are having trouble printing.
  2. To see the margin settings of your document, go to File > Page Setup (or Page Layout > Margins > Custom Margins for Word 2007).
  3. Click OK on the margins dialog, and Word will check the settings against your currently selected printer. If a margin is set outside the printable area (usually the bottom margin set to zero), you should see the warning message.
  4. Click the Fix button to have Word change the margins
    to match your printer. You should now see the Margins dialog with the new margin settings.
  5. Click OK.
One thing to watch for- on some inkjet printers, the printable area is narrower than the labels. This will cause the labels to shift to the right on the page and be misaligned when you print.
If the labels run off the right edge of the page display, or are misaligned when you print, an extra procedure is needed.
  1. Undo ([Ctrl]+[Z]) the new margin setting, or create a new page from the label template again.
  2. Select the entire table of labels ([Ctrl]+[A]).
  3. Right-click the table, and select Table Properties.
  4. Click the Text wrapping "Around" option, then the Positioning button.
  5. Change the Horizontal position to Center, Relative to Page.
    Uncheck the "Move with text" option. Click OK to the Table Positioning dialog, then click OK to the Table Properties dialog.
  6. Left-click (or press an arrow key) to "deselect" the table, then go into the margins dialog (see above) and allow Word to fix the margin settings again.
With the labels aligned to the page, rather than the margins, the new margin settings should not cause the labels to shift.
Once you have the margins set correctly for your printer, I would save the empty page of labels to use as a "template".

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.

Zebra 105sl - printer does not print correct size


This can happen if you have the wrong dpi setup. For instance the 105sl can be either 203dpi or 300dpi. If your printhead is 300dpi and the label you create is expecting 203dpi, then you will see shrunken label. Your situation doesn't exactly sound like this is the case but it may be worth checking.

Label Printing Problems


Your problem seems to be due to worn out of rollers. Try a less glossy paper and you can find the difference.

Paper feed


The feed rollers are slipping on the surface of the label, causing the page to load incorrectly. There is no permanent solution at this time. Try one of the following workarounds to correct this issue. Workarounds Workaround 1 Adjust the top margin using Page Setup.
  1. Click File , then Page Setup in the program being used, (accessing Page Setup may vary from program to program. Refer to the Help file for that program).
  2. Adjust the top margin until printing is correct on the label.
Workaround 2 Manually print one sheet at a time. Place one sheet of labels in the input tray at a time, printing only that page. Repeat for all pages of labels needed.
