Description
Print Darkness
Set the darkness to the lowest setting that provides good print quality. If you set the darkness too high, the label image may print unclearly, bar codes may not scan correctly, the ribbon may burn through, or the printhead may wear prematurely.
If desired, use the Evaluating Barcode Quality to determine the optimal darkness setting.

Print Width
Specify the width of the labels being used, in dots. The default value is the maximum width for the printer, based on the printhead’s DPI value.
Accepted values:
Setting the width too narrow can result in portions of a label format not being printed on the media. Setting the width too wide wastes formatting memory and can cause the printer to print off of the label and onto the platen roller. This setting can affect the horizontal position of the label format if the image was inverted using the

Maximum Label Length
Set the maximum label length.
Accepted values:
0 to the maximum label length supported by the printer
Specify a value that is at least 1.0 in. (25.4 mm) greater than the actual label length plus the interlabel gap. If you set the value to one that is smaller than the label length, the printer assumes that continuous media is loaded, and the printer cannot calibrate.
For example, if the label length is 6.0 inches (152 mm) including the interlabel gap, set the parameter for at least 7.0 inches (178 mm).
