Not Able to Print on the Left Edge of a Label

Article ID: 12356427

Issue / Question

• White line on the left edge of the label

• Not able to print on left edge of the label

• What is the first dot location measured from inside media backing edge?

Applicable To

Tabletop Printers, Print Engines

Resolution / Answer

Some label designs might show a small white line on the left edge of the label once printed on with a Tabletop Printer or Print Engine.



The reason for this is that the first dot location of the printhead is not located at the far left of the printer, but actually is a tiny bit farther to the right.
Simply said; the label is farther left than where the printhead begins.


First dot location (measured from the inside edge of the media)
