Tip: Do a test print first

Last but not the least, it’s recommended to do a test print first. If you want to avoid any issues in the future we strongly suggest that you run test prints before printing your whole series of labels.

Print first on a sheet of blank paper to check your design and alignment, and determine which direction to feed in your printer. You can place your labels sheet on top of your test print and check that everything is OK by transparency.
