GIMP stands for GNU Image Manipulation Program. In this little tutorial we’re going to show you that you don’t need to purchase a stupidly expensive program in order to print labels on your thermal printer! That we are just going to use one free (yet incredibly powerful) photo editing program.
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.
Making a commercial grade thermal printer work for your shipping and labeling needs.
This entry was started because for some reason throughout all of the years of repairing printers there hasn’t really been a good article about thermal printer repair. Usually when you look-up problems with these types of printers you ether get sucked into trap-sites that are trying to get your contact info. Forums which have a lot of dead links. Or some company that is only out to sell you a new thermal printer instead of fixing or even using the one that you already got. We’re old school Luddites and still believe the internet is a place for information. We will not sell you anything. If you find any of this information useful to you then awesome.
