Printing labels with thermal printers.

Thermal Printer Repair Title

How we use labels when printing with thermal printers around the home/office.

A while back I did an article about thermal printer repair and I want to show you how I actually use it with printing labels. In the previous article I was mostly focusing on what to look for when you’re going through old equipment and how to repair some of these older but great machines and all of the common defects that I have seen throughout the years. I still have my thermal printers and I use them for Ebay. Lately, I had a reader e-mail me asking me what thermal programs do I use to print the labels that I do?

Well, you’re in luck. Because I want to show you how to make a terminal printer work for you.

S the Badger - Title

Badger Reference / Model sheet of “S”.

Currently, I just have a reference sheet done of my new badger character. clothing and more detail will come eventually.This is something I was working with and decided that perhaps a badger would be a better species set for me. Who knows. The model sheet with done entirely in photoshop using a %10 pressure soft-pen to emulate pencil and finally using the smart-brush for inking via mouse. this took a good day to complete.

Hellcat the feline.

Hellcat was another bit of a production I did in mid 2000’s trying to focus more of coloring and style. once again, from a profile sheet to poses sketch out to the final creations colored in Photoshop and rendered in Lightwave. This one I spent a bit of time on as it was one of my characters for the longest time in the 90’s. A lot of drawsings I could not calculate how long it took me. But I do know the background that was rendered out in LightWave took about 7 hours to do because I had it rendering at 600dpi.

Epic – Human Character

Epic - Title

Epic – A space scene

Epic is another color picture from my portfolio. This time a human! Yes, I know! I do draw them. Not as often as I should though. Epic was done with PhotoShop and lightwave 6.0. It was a little experiment to play with reflection in the background as well as an attempt to add some balance in my portfolio. This area will show from start to finish what I did on this one.
