NRG Tips - Mac OS & Zebra Printers

  1. 1. 11 SHIPPING TOOLS & TIPS - Volume 1 MAC OS 10.5.2 includes Drivers for Zebra Thermal Printers How to set it up and what it means for you www.nrgsoftware.com 262-432-0934
  2. 2. 2 + = :) With the release of Mac OS 10.5.2, there is now direct driver support for Zebra thermal printers. While Dymo printers are great for low-volume use, printers like the LP2844 are built for high-volume use. Previously, developers (like NRG) needed to use OS work arounds to print to these devices, and end users needed to purchase costly third-party drivers. www.nrgsoftware.com 262-432-0934
  3. 3. 3 PRINTER SET UP • Simply plug the Zebra printer in to your Mac via USB. • Go to Print Setup, you will just need to select the proper driver. DRIVER OPTIONS • If your printer is a LP2844 variant (the kind provided by UPS and FedEx) then pick the Zebra EPL2 Label Printer, 1.3 driver. • If your printer is the beefier LP2844Z model, then you need to pick the Zebra ZPL Label Printer, 1.3 driver. Once you’ve added the printer, you can print from any Mac application. www.nrgsoftware.com 262-432-0934
  4. 4. 4 PRINTING ADDRESS LABELS FROM FROM FILEMAKER Create new layout by selecting Layouts->New Layout/Report… Select the Labels layout type and press Next www.nrgsoftware.com 262-432-0934
  5. 5. 5 Adjust the layout to use custom measurements for the label size you will be printing. In this example, we will be printing to a 4x6 label. Make sure to zero out the page margins. Press Next to continue. www.nrgsoftware.com 262-432-0934
