Default Need Help Making My Zebra Printer Wireless

I'm sorry if this subject has been brought up or if its in wrong place. Please move if have to Green Bean

My business is getting more and more successful as each day goes by, i have about 50 orders a day and probably reach about 200 in a month or 2 so i have to start getting some upgrades.

I'm working on both ebay and amazon and the way i would print out the shipping labels was with an ordinary ink printer. The way i do it is (huge hassle and mickey mouse style) the first paper ordinary paper for the package slips and the second one is a easy peel shipping label sticker.

So i would just print package slip and right away print shipping label. Sometimes i would have to do it again because i would accidentally put 2 papers or 2 label stickers because they would get stuck.

So i was just wondering how some of you with 500, 400, 100, even 50 orders a day do it?
I was thinking of purchasing a used zebra LP 2844 but those things only fit 250 Shipping labels in them and would have to change the roll almost ever day. Please i will be willing to listen to any suggestions

Actually, the rolls I get come in 320 count.

AND: As far as changing the rolls, it literally takes less than 15 seconds.

You really won't find another printer that is better. And there is nothing stopping you from running 2 of these at a time.

I recently found out that there is a feed in the back of the printer and instead of buying rolls you can buy the labels folded. So I'm guessing if the printer is placed somewhere high behind it you can stack folded labels and another good thing about this after being printed it too is folded as well.

My issue is wondering what software/service to use with the printer. Something that allows you to import or copy shipping info from eBay FAST without being linked.

I use my zebra printer with all my ebay accounts and nothing gets linked. And there is drivers you can use if you want to print with USPS, fedex, or UPS. It depends on your preference of shipping company.

I'm thinking of doing the same thing, i wish someone could create a manual of how to get your zebra running after purchased.

It looks like it comes with a cd, if we purchase it used most likely the cd is not going to come with it. Is that a problem?

I use stamps, linked to my 3 ebay accounts and amazon account plus my other accounts that I have all linked to that 1 stamps account. Works like a charm easy to print and makes life ALOT easier

There is really 1 setting that has to be enabled. (In BOLD below)

To get to the main settings page...

1) Click on your start/programs button on the lower left on your display.

2) To the right, click on Devices and Printers.

3) Find your LP 2844 printer on the pictures.

4) Right click the picture and select "Printing Preferences"

5) The will bring up the menu you are looking for.

6) Select the "Options" tab.

7) Find where it says "Size" and put it 4.00 for width and 6.00 for height.

8) Change Speed to 1.50

9) Change Darkness to 15

This should get you up and running.

I got it, just have one more final question..... since I did customize the labels because there is a small sticker before the labels it had to be customized. The bar code is now stretched, since I do not know anything about bar codes, is this a problem for USPS to scan? will there computers recognize if its just a little stretched?

Really, you don't have a "Bar Code Scanner" in your sellers tool box.

Actually, I don't think it will be a problem. But for your peace of mind, I would go to the Post Office and have them scan a couple of your packages.

Helpful Hint: Get yourself a Bar Code Scanner, makes doing listings immensely easier and they are only about $50 on eBay.
