Part 6 Character Sizes

Your label printer comes with two basic typefaces: standard
and small. You can adjust the size of characters either by
direct specifying for each character or specifying character
size for entire lines of text using preset formats.
The operations in this part of the manual explain how to
change character sizes using each of these techniques.

Direct Specification of Character Sizes

You can specify the size of characters using the numeric
factors shown in the tables below. A character size change
is indicated on the display by a character size indicator.

Standard Typeface

• The normal size for the standard typeface is 1 × 1 (24 ×
24 dots; 3mm × 3mm).
• Character size can be changed by specifying a vertical
factor (1, 2, 3, 4, 5) and a horizontal factor (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6,
7).
• The table below shows the character size indicator val-
ues that appear for each character size.
