GK888t Thermal Printers

The Zebra GK888t model is the optimal value in a desktop thermal printer.
The GK888t printer provides thermal transfer and direct thermal printing at speeds up to 4 ips (inches per second) at a 203 dpi (dots per inch) print density. The GK888t supports both ZPL and EPL Zebra printer programming languages and a wide variety of interface and feature options.
The GK888 printer features:
  • Automatic printer language detection and switching between ZPL and EPL programming and label formats
  • Easy ribbon loading design
  • Color-coded operator controls and media guides
  • On-board Simplified and Traditional Chinese font set available for EPL (888 legacy fonts - GB-2312 and Big 5) and ZPL (GB18030-2000 and Big 5) programming.
  • Zebra Global Printing Solution—Supports Microsoft Windows keyboard encoding (and ANSI), Unicode UTF-8 and UTF 16 (Unicode Transformation Formats), XML, ASCII (7 and 8-bit used by legacy programs and systems), basic single and double-byte font encoding, Hexadecimal encoding, and custom character maps (DAT table creation, font linking, and character remapping).
  • Improved printer performance—Faster print speeds and a 32-bit processor.
  • A complete suite of free software applications and drivers to configure printer settings, design, and print labels and receipts, get printer status, import graphics, and fonts, send programming commands, update firmware, and download files. Clone printer settings and send graphics, files, fonts, and firmware (updates) to one or more Zebra Ethernet and locally connected printers with ZebraNet Bridge.
  • Maintenance reporting is enabled and customizable by the user.
The GK888 printers offer these basic printer options:
  • Label dispense (peel-off)
  • General media cutter
  • Internal 10/100 print server and Ethernet interface
  • Zebra ZBI 2.0 (Zebra BASIC Interpreter) programming language. ZBI allows you to create custom printer operations that can automate processes, and use peripherals (i.e., scanners, scales, keyboards, Zebra KDU or KDU Plus, etc.) all without being attached to a PC or network.
This user guide provides all the information you need to operate your printer on a daily basis. To create label formats, refer to your programming guides or label design applications such as ZebraDesigner (see zebra.com/zebradesigner for details).
Your printer, when connected to a host computer, functions as a complete system for printing labels and tags.
Many printer settings may also be controlled by your printer’s driver or label design software. Refer to the driver or software documentation for more information.
