Question about Zebra LP 2844 Thermal Printer

1 Answer

I have a customer who was using a Zebra S4M printer for a while on Windows 2000, upgraded to 2008 Server, upgraded their printer driver to the ZDesigner driver (on the suggestion of Zebra), and now their barcodes are coming across as "fuzzy" and "saw-toothed". We have played with all of the properties and nothing seems to work. Making the barcode wider made the lines thicker which aided in being scanned but it also made the barcode label too wide for certain scanners.

Try using the Seagull Scientific Zebra driver. It is usually a much better code driver that the original ZB one.
