FAQ# 2124: Why are my labels not lining up on the tear bar on my Zebra label printer?

Question

Why are my labels not lining up on the tear bar on my Zebra label printer?

Answer

Most label printers will need to be calibrated, especially after installing new labels.

In order to do this:

  • With Zebra label printers, power off the printer, and hold the feed button down.
  • Power the printer back on, and after the feed light blinks twice, release the feed button.
  • The printer should begin the calibration stage, and will eject several labels before being calibrated.
Once calibration is finished, the labels should be properly aligned.
