Adjusting Print Quality

Print quality is affected by a combination of the heat (or density) setting of the printhead, print speed, and the media loaded. Experiment with these settings to find the optimal mix for your application.
Print quality can be configured using the Zebra Setup Utility’s
Configure Print Quality
Media manufacturers may recommend specific speed settings when using your printer with their media. The recommended speed may be lower than your printer’s maximum speed setting!
You can control the print darkness (or density) setting using one of the following:
  • the Set Darkness (
    ) ZPL command (see the ZPL Programming Guide for details)
  • the Windows printer driver
  • application software such as ZebraDesigner
After adjusting these settings, you can verify them by printing a Printer Configuration label (see Test Printing with the Configuration Report).
