Label Printer Problem

Hi,
 I have Zebra 2746e Label printer. When it print shipping labels with bar code, it prints too small which makes it harder to read and it prints "Page n of xx" on the top of each label and also prints "http://www.b2bgateway.com ...  2/14/2014" at the bottom too.
 When I tried to talk to Zebra manufacturer, they said that they no longer support the printer.
 I am printing these labels from online EDI website (B2BGateway.com) and overall they print the shipping labels well except these two minor issues. When I scan the bar code off  the printed labels using my iPhone, it picks up the number (below the bar code) correctly.
 They are simply too small to look at.

Thanks.

Considering the service provider you're using it would appear that the footer is added by the site that you're printing from.
http://www.b2bgateway.com ...  2/14/2014" at the bottom too.

Contact their support about getting rid of that on the footer if possible. Could be that all their printouts are now branded with their details.

Printing properties can be modified as suggested above to improve the print size.
But it may also be configurable by the service provider as most likely they're using a small font on the barcode too.

Page SetupIt turned out that I had to make some adjustment in Page Setup from Internet Explorer (File/Page Setup option). Based on tech support suggestion from B2BGateway, I set Left/Right/Top/Bottom margins to Zeros. Changed Header and Footer  to "Empty".
That did the trick.

Thank you.
