Laser Label Guide

Laser labels are specifically designed for use with laser printers and copiers. Unlike inkjet printers, laser printers use heat and light to fuse the ink into the paper or film. Laser labels have a special coating that helps fuse the ink so that it never runs, and gives you sharp, crisp lines in anything you print. Here are some tips to help you get the best results when using labels with your laser printer.

1. Always use laser labels with your laser printer. While other labels will print, you’ll get the best results with labels specially formulated for use with a laser printer.


2. Make sure that you use the label setting on your printer (set either in the software or on the printer) when printing labels. Your printer adjusts for varying thickness and weight of paper. Using the right setting will ensure that the paper feeds through at the right speed.


3. Always use the bypass tray to feed labels into your laser printer. It slows down the feed mechanism and raises the temperature of the drum for better results.


4. Likewise, always open the back output tray so that the labels follow a straight path through the printer rather than curling. The extra curling risks peeling labels and printer jams.


5. Only feed a sheet of laser labels through the printer once. While it may feel wasteful, laser labels are designed to go through the printer once. Using ‘leftover’ labels by feeding them through a second time risks printer jams.
