Printing Sideways

Modified on Thu, 13 Jul 2023 at 03:55 PM

Your label is most likely not formatted correctly for 4 x 6 label printing, which is the most likely cause. Most shipping platforms produce their labels in 8 x 11 as opposed to 4 x 6 inches. This is the likely reason why your labels printing sideways or printing really small.

Here is an example of a 4 x 6-inch label: sample_label.pdf 

You can still print your 8 x 11-inch label using your L+H² printer by cropping the label using a free version of Adobe Reader. Please see the steps below on how to crop your label using Adobe.


If you are using the new version of Adobe Reader on Windows.

  1. Click Menu
  2. Undo > Redo > More
  3. Take a snapshot
  4. Drag your mouse from top to bottom highlighting the label that you want to print.
  5. Click Print.

If you are using the new version of Adobe Reader on MAC, please watch this video
