FAQ

I have label sheets and I am not sure if this plugin can support it.

By default barcode generator supports most popular A4 label sheets that allows to print 12, 14, 16, 21, 24, 40, 44, 56, 65, 120, 189, 230 or 324 barcodes per page.

If you have label sheet with different amount of labels or with different sizes – you can easily create your own custom format – just specify sizes of labels, margins, label gaps and new format will be ready for work.

How do I know that my printer supports margin-free printing ?

Before printing it’s very important to get to know your printer a little bit better, especially we need to know if printer can print without page margins.

The right way to do it is to read technical documentation about your printer (or find it in google) but if you lost documentation or can’t find in google there is another way.

Print this PDF page and compare if it looks the same as on PDF. If page border doesn’t look the same – your printer might not suport border-free printing or you didn’t check this option in print settings popup.
