             Tag Layouts for the Eltron TLP-2xxx

             -----------------------------------

 

The Jewelry Shopkeeper allows you to fine-tune your thermal

transfer printer price tag layouts. From the Main Menu, choose

2,5,B, Make sure the Thermal Tag setting is set to E for Eltron.

Next, press Page-Down. Here is a sample layout that we came up

with when we were testing an Eltron TLP-2242. Printers vary in

their alignment and so the coordinates may have to be adjusted.

 

The 'across' and 'down' measurements below are in terms of 'pixels' for the

printer which are normally an eight of a millimeter each. The coordinates

are measured from the top left corner of the tag.

So.. for example, if you  need to move the sku number 2mm further to the

right then that equals 16 pixels. E.g.if the sku number is currently set to

128 'across' then you'd adjust that to 144 across. If you wanted to move an

item up 1/2 mm you'd reduce the 'down' number by 4.

 

 

You should test both of the sample layouts below to see which one is

closest to your tag (even if they're both far off) and then adjust from

there.

 

The sample layout below was for the ring tag (dumbbell/butterfly tag)

from Tag Tics.
