2. Loading Supply

The printer prints both tags and labels. The supply may be wound with the printable side on either the inside or the outside.

This chapter explains how to load supply for

Non-PeelMode Printing (labels are printed in one strip. This can be used with Continuous Printing.)

Peel Mode Printing (one label at a time while the backing paper rewinds inside the printer. This must be used with On Demand Printing.)

Fan-FoldMode Printing(fan-foldsupply is printed in one strip). Call Service if you would like to usefan-foldsupply.

NOTE: If your printer has a knife, follow the instructions under"Non-PeelMode." You cannot use On Demand printing with a knife. Also, if your printer has a knife, it does not have thetake-upspool shown in the instructions for loading supply.

If you are going to use thermal direct supply (no ribbon) and your printer is equipped with a ribbon roll adapter, turn the thermal supply indicator to the right. (See "Loading a Ribbon Roll" in Chapter 3.)

Non-PeelMode

This mode is for both tags and labels. The printer dispenses the desired amount of supply without separating the backing paper from the label. This mode is usually used with continuous printing.
