Part 8 Printing

This part of the manual includes all the information you need
to print tapes.
Note The following information covers basic printing pro-
cedures only. Other printing related information can be found
in the sections of this manual describing presets (page
E-20), stamp printing (page E-25), frames, and memory op-
erations (page E-26).

Printing Precautions

• Never turn power off while printing is being performed.
• Make sure that the tape outlet is not blocked before you
start printing.
• Never operate the tape cutter while printer is being per-
formed (indicated by the message "NOW PRINTING" on
the display).
• During printing at very high density, printing of very long
text, or repeat printing of the same text a number of times,
the label printer may stop printing for about five seconds.
This is not a malfunction, and normal printing should
resume shortly.

Printing a Tape

Printing a tape is as easy as pressing the PRINT key.

To print a tape

1. Press the PRINT key to print a tape of the text you have
input and laid out.
• To stop a print operation that is in progress, press ESC.
• You can add extra margin to the beginning of the tape by
pressing FUNC and then FEED before starting the print
operation.
2. After the print operation is complete, rotate the tape cut-
ter lever to cut the tape.
• Make sure you rotate the tape cutter lever as far as it will
go, but do not apply excessive force.
3. Use scissors to trim the tape to the size you want, if nec-
essary.
• After you print a tape, you can peel off its paper backing
and stick the tape onto the object you want. Note that the
tape will not stick on coarse, wet, oily, or soiled surfaces.
Also, you should not try to use the tape where it is ex-
posed to direct sunlight or rain. Do not stick the tape onto
human skin.
• An easy way to remove the backing from a tape and ex-
pose the adhesive surface is to bend the tape near one of
its ends. This should cause the tape and its backing to
separate, allowing you to pull them apart.

2. Press SET UP to display the SET UP menu.
