How do I change the label size settings for my Datamax printer?

This article will apply to you if your Datamax printer:

  • takes up less than a full label.
  • prints out a blank label.
  • prints out over two labels.

 

 

Steps

Before performing the steps below, you will need to know the width and height of your labels first. You can gather the measurements using a ruler or tape measure.
