You must install Adobe Flash Player to access additional font options in Maestro Label Designer. Once Adobe Flash Player is installed, restart Maestro Label Designer. Any fonts currently installed on your computer should appear below the preset fonts in the "Font Family" dropdown.
If you are downloading new fonts to your computer, follow these instructions then repeat the directions above.
In some instances, PDF viewers can't process certain fonts or images. When this happens, the PDF viewer may add squares around your design or lines through it. You can eliminate this issue by telling your PDF viewer that your document is an image. Here's how:
In Adobe Reader (our recommended PDF viewer), hit print. Click "Advanced" toward the top. Check the box for "Print As Image."
Every printer on the market has a fixed, maximum printable area where the ink or toner stops. That space is called the "non-printable margin."
If your label configuration extends to the edge of your sheet or close to it, we recommend figuring out your non-printable margins. To determine what your printer's non-printable margins are, you can look to your printer's instruction manual or use our printer margin tool. Print the document and measure the 1" line in step 2. If the line is not an accurate inch, return to the print dialog box and select the "Fit to Page" or "Print Actual Size" option. Setting the "Custom Scale" option to 100% will produce the same results. Print the document again and remeasure. Once you're sure it's printing to scale, start from the edge of the paper and work your way in until you find the first full box, each box is 30mm wide. The numbers next to the first full box are your non-printable margins.
Use those measurements to adjust your label design. If you're using Maestro Label Designer, hover over the "Print" menu and click "Page Setup." From there, you can adjust your settings to fit within your printable dimensions.
A "bleed" is when you allow your design to transcend the dimensions of the "finished product." Bleeds ensure that once label paper is cut or a label is peeled up from its liner that your desired color reaches the edge of the label and you don't have any unprinted edges. Bleeds also account for any shifting that occurs throughout the printing process.
We suggest adding a bleed of at least 3.175mm or 1.5875mm to your design. This will account for the slight movement that can occur during the printing process.
