Priory Direct’s Integrated Label Printing and Handling Advice

The top tips that will be covered are:

  1. Loading sheets
  2. Feeding sheets
  3. Printer paper settings
  4. Alignment – margins and adjustments
  5. Storage and acclimatisation

Tip 1 – Loading Sheets

Take 100-250 sheets at a time when loading your printer, over-stacking can cause feed issues. Fanning the sheets before putting them in the paper tray prevents sheets snagging on each other ensuring smooth running through your inkjet or laser printer.

Tip 2 – Feeding Sheets

Wherever possible, sheets should be picked up by the printer paper end first to prevent paper jams and stacking problems. To do this, you may need to rotate the output by 180° in the printer settings.

Tip 3 – Printer Paper Settings

Adjusting the paper type in your printer’s settings to labels or card ensures you get the best print results.

Tip 4 – Alignment – Margins & Adjustments

Most of our integrated label layouts are designed to line up with an ecommerce platform or marketplace straight out of the box. If yours aren’t lining up then printer margins are a great tool.

You can adjust your margins in your printer settings or in your browser.

If you’re having trouble getting consistent results when printing from your browser, ensure page scaling is off in your printer settings.

Tip 5 – Storage & Acclimatisation

We have recently removed the outer shrink wrap from the Integrated Label box packaging, which will subsequently save 5 tonnes of plastic per year! But don’t worry, our integrated labels are still the exact same quality, and offer the same great performance as before.

Silicone and paper absorb moisture at different rates, so it’s important the next box you use is kept in the environment it will be used in at least 24 hours before use to allow sheets to acclimatise before printing. This is especially important in winter.

We hope these tips give you all you need to get the very best performance out of your integrated labels.
