Zp 450 printer labels: Zebra ZP450 High Speed Direct Thermal Label Printer

How to use a Zebra ZP 450 with eBay, USPS, Stamps.com, PayPal & more in Windows 7, 8, 10! – DAYDULL

Free UPS thermal shipping labels with the Zebra ZP 450 while still using USPS, eBay, PayPal, stamps.com, endicia, and more! Use thte ZP-450 with eBay, PayPal, Amazon and more.

The ZP 450 Thermal Printer by Zebra stopped production in around 2012. Because of this, driver support is limited and installation on modern systems can be tricky. However the ZP 450 is a very solid thermal printer and is also designed to work well with the free 4×6″ UPS thermal labels as well as many other generic thermal label suppliers.

Without a bit of help and reading, you’ll likely have a ton of trouble getting your ZP 450 to work to print out labels unless you’re using it only with UPS’s software. Thankfully it only takes a few minutes to also get it to work with other shipping services and sales platforms.

Here are the instructions for getting the Zebra ZP 450 working in Windows 7 / 8 / 10 etc.

I have just done this setup in 2015 and it is working great.

0. Load a roll of thermal labels following the visual instructions you see inside the printer.

1. Plug in your ZP 450 power and USB cable into your Windows PC. Turn on the printer using the switch at its back.

2. Windows will most likely pop up an error message saying driver not found

3. Download the driver for the LP 2844 printer from the Zebra website. Here is the link: https://www.zebra.com/us/en/support-downloads/desktop/lp-2844.html (yes that’s right, you have to use the driver for the LP 2844 even if it makes no sense).

4. Install the printer driver. You will likely also want to install the Zebra Font program and the Zebra status monitor programs that are options during the installation.

5. During installation, you will likely be asked to pick the port your ZP 450 is plugged into. You will probably have it plugged in via USB, so it will be one of the ports listed as USB, however you will have to test via trial and error to figure out which port it is currently plugged into. For now, simply pick one of the ports that are shown as blank (no other printer in that slot).

6. Now open up windows control panel and go to the Devices and Printers section. You will now see “ZDesigner LP 2844” listed as one of your printers. To finish picking the port and setting up the print settings, right click on it and click “Printer Properties”. Now click on “Preferences…” located toward the bottom of the General tab. Here set speed to 1.50/s, darkness to 14, paper format to inch, portrait, and set size to 4.00 and height o 6.00. Unprintable area leave at all zeroes. Then click apply then OK.

7. Now try to print a test page. Wait a few seconds and see if your printer spits out a print. If not, it is probably set for the wrong port. Still in the “Printer Properties” dialog box, click on the “Ports” tab. Now switch to a different blank USB port and then click apply, then go print another Test page. Repeat this until your printer successful spits out a test page!

Zebra/Brother Printer Troubleshooting – InventoryLab

If you need to set up your printer, view the Zebra/Brother Setup instructions first.


Zebra/Brother Not Printing Correctly

Go to the File>Page Setup options and confirm that the ‘Shrink to fit page’ option is not turned on.

For Windows, you’ll need to ensure your Printer Driver settings are correct. Go to Windows Control Panel>Devices and Printers>Right Click on the Brother>Printing Preferences

This will display the Driver settings for your device, which should appear similar to the screenshot below. These should be made to match what you have input into InventoryLab for your Label’s dimensions.



We highly suggest creating a new Label Definition for your FBA Labels, as opposed to changing the values each time they need to be modified.


To do this, click on the Label Format Definitions button near the bottom of the dialog box. A new Settings dialog will appear with the current configuration shown, as depicted in the image below.*


If you use 100′ continuous stock, you’ll be able to set the label height to your choice (we personally like 1. 22″ height since that covers all UPC barcodes on Media items)*


If your stock has individual labels on the roll, you must use the Width and Height of the actual stock because a mismatch will cause an error or bad print output*



Now you’ll need to set your Width from the dropdown box, select a single value.


Type the label Height into the field provided and don’t change the “Feed” value unless it’s anything other than the minimum allowed value.


Next, at the top of the dialog box is a text field where the name of the Label Definition is. Change it to a custom value, like “FBA Labels” or whatever you’d prefer, and click the Save button to add the definition to the driver’s list of presets.


Click on OK to close this dialog box and return to the Driver settings dialog box. The definition you just saved should have its values applied to the current settings. If they aren’t, click the Format dropdown and select the name of the definition you just saved and the values will be applied.


The orientation should match the Label Stock orientation so the image depicted in Settings showing how the text will print is correct (you can always switch this if it prints the wrong direction). Click on Apply, then click on OK to close the dialog box and save the settings.


Incorrect Orientation with Continuous Rolls

If you use continuous rolls, you actually will need to set your orientation in your driver settings to Landscape, and your orientation in InventoryLab and Firefox to Portrait in order for the labels to printer correctly.

If not, check the type of labels you are using. Currently, the sample address labels that come with a new Brother printer cause trouble in the Firefox browser. This can cause your labels not to print in Landscape orientation regardless of your settings. To solve this, please order a full set of Brother labels for your printer. A recommended label type is dk1209, which are small address labels.


Zebra Labels Printing Blank

This usually means your printer needs to be recalibrated. Follow the steps below depending on your model:


Zebra LP2844

  • Press and hold the feed button on the top of the printer
  • This will re-calibrate the label feed


Zebra ZP-450 and ZP-500

  • Turn the printer on
  • Hold down the feed button
  • Wait until until it flashes two times then release it (the printer will first flash once, then twice)
  • After the two-flash, release the feed button
  • This will re-calibrate the label feed


Everything should begin to print correctly now.

Zebra ZP 450 Troubleshooting – iFixit

The printer won’t turn on and there are no indicator light on

Before going any farther, make sure the power switch on the back of the device is switched to the on position.

Next, make sure the power cable is securely connected to the back of the device and then into the power outlet.

If everything is plugged in and switched on, then the power cable may be bad and should be replaced.

Pieces of the label may have light printing while others are normal, or the whole label may be faded

The darkness, or heat setting, might need adjusting in the driver on your computer.

  1. On the General tab of the driver window, click on printing preferences
  2. Expand Device Options and then expand Head Settings
  3. Select Darkness Wizard and click the Settings button
  4. Follow the instructions in resulting window

(Steps from Zebra documentation)

The printer may be dirty and need cleaning. Zebra recommends buying their cleaning pens for such a job and they can be readily found online.

If the top lid is open the indicator light turns red. Try giving it a good push down and wait for a click.

If the printer is out of paper then the light will let you know by turning red.

If you have paper in the printer and the lid is shut, but the light is still red then the printer may not realize there is paper inside. You can calibrate it to the labels inside the printer by going into the driver settings.

  1. On the General tab of the driver window, click on printing preferences
  2. Click the Tools tab
  3. Expand the Tools option and click the Tools… option above Status Polling
  4. Click the Tools button
  5. Click the Calibrate button

(Steps from Zebra documentation)

First double check the printer still has paper. If it does, make sure it is securely sitting in the holder.

Make sure the top is securely latched shut. It takes a good push for it to lock.

If you are trying to feed with the feed button, it may be that the button is defective and needs to be replaced. See this guide on completing this repair.

It is possible that something is stopping the paper feeding roller to not move properly. One of the feeding rollers or a motor may need to be replaced.

show how to calibrate and write RFID tags on an industrial Zebra printer, what programs are needed for this (Bartender is suitable) and how to work with dense metal tags

Zebra ZT411 industrial label printers are designed for the highest loads and have the most comprehensive capabilities for autonomous work. Meanwhile, the printer, the review of which we offer in the video below, has one more feature – support for recording RFID tags, including dense and high tags with a metal substrate. Often, metal structures are marked with just such marks (for example, when automating MRO work).

Among other features of the tested modification of Zebra ZT411, we note: the presence of USB, Ethernet and RS232 connectors, wireless Wi-Fi and Bluetooth interfaces, an NFC chip, a 203 dpi print head, which allows you to create good quality prints even at a maximum speed of 356 mm / sec. Of course, it is worth mentioning the large touchscreen display (color, diagonal – 4.3 “) and the built-in menu in Russian.For a complete list of printer specifications, see the end of this article.

To test the capabilities of the printer for recording RFID tags, we used the Union EAM software package developed by Inter ID. In particular, the PC version was used to encode the tags, and the Android version was used to read them and, accordingly, check how correctly the recording was made. As expected, Zebra ZT411 showed a high speed of writing tags and coped with the tasks.For details, see overview:

The Zebra ZT411 line of industrial label printers is available in about two dozen different modifications. Let us remind you that we have already tested one of them – with a built-in label separator and rewinder – before. Other Zebra ZT411 configurations can include: 300 and even 600 dpi print head, cutter and label collection tray. To consult and order a label printer, as well as other equipment for marking and accounting, send a message through the contact form below, write to info @ interid.ru or just call the indicated phones. Our experience will allow you to choose the right solution for the specific tasks of each client.
