When printing labels it is easier to start with an existing template and make
modifications than to create a new label from scratch. On the CD splash screen,
click on “Install Templates & Symbols”.
IMPORTANT! Perform these changes before opening the document you wish to print.
Continuous Label Stock
The Default Printing Preferences on your
DuraLabel 4000 should be at the proper
settings for printing on continuous vinyl and
should require no adjustments.
To change settings:
1. Select START >> PRINTERS and FAXES.
2. Right-click on “DuraLabel 4000” and
select Printing Preferences.
3. On the Option tab you can adjust the
speed and darkness to optimize print
quality depending on the ribbon and
vinyl supply.
Die-Cut Label Stock (Arc Flash, RTK, NFPA, & Notice)
When printing on die-cut labels you need to calibrate the gap sensor and make
adjustments in the print driver.
To calibrate the gap sensor:
1. Turn off the printer and wait 5 seconds.
2. Hold down the FEED/STATUS button and
turn it back on. The feed/status button will
blink green twice, switch to solid red, then
begin to blink red.
3. Release the button while it’s blinking red.
Labels will feed through the printer and the
gap sensor will be calibrated.
To set up the driver for die-cut label stock:
1. Select START >> PRINTERS and FAXES.
2. Right-click on “DuraLabel 4000” and select Printing Preferences.
3. On the Stock tab under Media Settings change the Media Type to Labels with
Gaps. (If you do not want to cut between every label, under Media Handling
change the Post-Print Action to “None”.)
4. Click OK after you have made your changes.
