When to not use a Zebra Printer Driver

An application may output the printer's native command language ZPL, EPL, or CPCL to create the label image. That output text should not be processed by a Zebra Printer Driver (i.e. do not use a Zebra Designer Driver or 3rd party Zebra Printer drivers). For this scenario you should use a generic text or raw driver to send data to the printer that will allow the commands to reach the printer unaltered.

Important: If you are using a UPS printer with WorldShip or a FedEx Printer you will need to consult with those vendors for the proper driver for your printer.
