Learn how to adjust the print start and vertical position when using the Mk2600.

Solution

Adjusting the printing start position and vertical position

When printing, environmental factors or characteristics of the print media may cause printing to start slightly out of position or to be shifted slightly in the vertical direction so that character data is not printed correctly, even though the correct print media type and size are selected. In such case, you can shift the printing position slightly up / down or left / right.

 The printing start position can be set independently for each print media.
 

Case 1

The character alignment is set to Left and the margin was set to 3mm. However, when actually printed, the margin is only 2mm.

Case 1 Example

Case 2

Printing is shifted up about 0.5mm.

Case 2 Example

  1. Press [Adjust].

  • The Print Media selection display appears. First, shift the printing start position 1mm to the right.
