Suggestion for label printing problems
Posted on 2006-11-10
We are having difficulty getting the label to print in the same place each time. Page after page of labels will print correctly. Then for no apparent reason the labels will drift 10 to 20 pixels, up or down, left or right. We are using fonts as small as 3 point on the label so it is very noticable when they drift.
We are currently using a HP LaserJet 8150N to print lables. We have tried the straight through path and the regular tray. The same problem is encountered in both. The label size is 7/8"H x 4 1/2"W with a 1/8" separartion between lables.
Any idea what is going on?
Any suggestions for a laser printer that would always register page position consistently?
If we have to switch to a dot matrix printer, the software will have to be rewritten but that is doable. What printer would give good results at these small point sizes?
Thanks for your ideas.
