If using printer settings, ensure that no driver or application settings are overriding your applied parameters.

 

  • Ensure that the Label Top is properly set on the printer. 
  • Ensure the media type or tracking mode is set properly (gap/notch or web sensing) as an incorrect setting of continuous can cause drifting of the print on the label.
  • Ensure the application sending the job or the label format is properly set for the label sizing and needed label specifications.
  • Ensure that the platen roller has not lost diameter over time as this can cause vertical shifting of print.
