The ZebraDesigner Driver is available from the Zebra Website's Support & Downloads page.

The driver is Microsoft certified for use on Windows 7, 8, 10, 2008, Vista, 2003, and XP. The driver comes in both 32 bit and 64 bit versions (both are included in the download package)


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.

The Zebra Universal Driver is no longer posted on our web site. Nice Label or SeagullScientific provide a driver with support for Zebra printers and older Windows versions.

Version 1 of the ZebraDesigner Label Design Products cannot be used with the Version 2 and above ZebraDesigner printer drivers.  If you are using a Version 1 ZebraDesigner label design product, use the drivers that came with that version.
