Labels not Printing Sharp

Modified on Tue, 06 Jun 2023 at 04:19 PM

A low-quality label file is one of the most common reasons for less-than-perfect print quality. Try printing this sample label to test the printer and see whether it’s in good working order. If the sample label prints clearly it means the printer is working fine, and the quality of your label file is not adequate. This may be caused by the tool you are using to capture the label before printing it. (In general, a label that is downloaded as a PDF and printed from Adobe Reader does not have any issues).

If the sample label prints grainy, it probably means that you need to change your LH 560 printing preferences. To do so, follow these steps:

For Windows users:

  1. Click the search box/magnifying glass on your computer
  2. Search for PRINTERS
  3. Click Printers and Scanner
  4. Click L+H² or Lefthans2 and select Printing preferences
  5. Change your density to 8 and incrementally work your way up until you get the desired result.
  6. You may also want to lower your speed to 3.

For MAC users:

You can access it straight from the printer menu. Look for the drop-down menu under "Printer Features".

Cleaning the printer head and ensuring there is no dirt or residue will also improve print quality.
