Feeding Labels Correctly

As label sheets go through a printer, they can rotate slightly if the rollers in the printer are not exactly aligned. Above the main paper tray in most printers is a media bypass slot; you should use this slot if you can, as fewer rollers will be used and any rotation will be minimised.

Also, paper labels have a grain (like wood) which runs from the top to the bottom of the A4 sheet. Therefore they must always be fed narrow edge leading, ie portrait into printers. Feeding the labels landscape may make the labels release as they go over the rollers, hence jamming the machine.

  1. very handful of internet sites that take place to become in depth below, from our point of view are undoubtedly well worth checking out

  2. Right now it sounds like Movable Type is the top blogging platform out there right now. (from what I ave read) Is that what you are using on your blog?

  3. I have purchased Label 25.4 x 57.2mm Self-Laminating White Wrap Around Cable Labels – Laser Printer Only – for Wire Marker Identification on multiple occasions but I have ran into this problem repeatedly, even using the bypass (manual feed ) and the rear output to keep the labels from coming up the leading edge of the labels constantly (more often than not) rolls back and sticks to the printed labels and in general is a real pain. This has happened on multiple printers. Any tips you could offer to eliminate this from happening?

    1. Dear Rmgeasley,
      Thank you for purchasing with us.
      We would like to personally apologize for your experience with our product.
      This issue is common amongst laser printers. The curling effect could be caused due to excess of humidity in the paper or high temperatures in the printer. Here are our suggestions:
      1. The paper must be stored in a cool and dry placed, preferably sealed or closed in ream.
      2. Change the fuser mode (temperature). You can try lowering it.
      3. Sheet labels should only be fed through a laser or inkjet printer once. The heat and tight paper path of a laser printer can cause the label to curl after multiple passes through the printer.
      However, the humidity in paper might have been changed during long way shipment. If the problem still exists, please let us know and we would like to offer a replacement for you.

      We strive to offer the 100% satisfaction for all our customers and will try our best to resolve customer problems.

      Thank you for giving us the opportunity to make this right
