Using the Label Dispenser Option

The label dispenser option allows you to print a label and have the backing material (liner/web) automatically removed before the label is dispensed. If you are printing multiple labels and the printer has been programmed appropriately, the printer prints and dispenses the next label after you remove an already printed and dispensed, peeled label.
To use label dispense mode, use the Windows printer driver—or the Configure Printer Settings wizard in Zebra Setup Utilities—to set the printer's Media Handling setting to Peel-Off.
You can also configure the printer to dispense labels by sending it programming commands. If using ZPL, use these command sequences:
  • ^XA ^MMP ^XZ
  • ^XA ^JUS ^XZ
  1. Load the labels into the printer. Close the printer and press
    until a minimum of 100 mm (4 in.) of exposed labels exit the printer. Leave the labels on the liner.
  2. Lift the liner over the top of the printer, then open the door by pulling the gold latch in the center of dispenser door away from the printer.
  3. Insert the label liner between the dispenser door and the printer body.
  4. Close the dispenser door while pulling the end of the label liner tight.
  5. Press and release
    (Advance) one or more times until a label is presented for removal.
  6. During the print job, the printer will peel off the backing and present a single label. Take the label from the printer to allow the printer to print the next label.
    If you did not activate the label-taken sensor—using printer programming commands—to detect the removal of the dispensed (peeled) label, the printed labels will stack and may bind the mechanism.
