1. Overview

If you requested custom formats for your printer at the time your printer was ordered, your printer already has formats stored in memory.

If custom formats were ordered, see your management for procedures about using your formats.

If you did not request custom formats, the programming specialist in your company must design formats to be sent to your printer. These formats must be sent to the printer's memory before you begin to print labels.

First, read Chapter 2 for general installation and operating procedures.
