  • Label Print Position - There are situations that will involve adjustments to the print position of the labeller. This is true when preprinted information occupies more spaces on the top or bottom of the label. As such, there is a need to reallign the printing position. This can be done by moving the print mechanism away or towards the machine. When moved away from the labeler, the characters will print higher on the label. Else when moved inwards, the printing will print lower to the bottom of the label. Below is the guide to adjust the print position:
