Hi @Mauro06 ,

 

Dani here from Shopify!

 

First of all, welcome to Shopify!

 

Are you planning to print your shipping labels directly in the admin using Shopify Shipping? If so, we actually have a list of recommended printers found here! We do have a Brother one, but it is the QL-111ONWB. I personally use the Dymo LabelWriter 4XL one for my own store and have found it to works really well for me.

 

How is your store coming along so far? Have you launched your online store yet?

 

Let us know if you have any further questions!

 

All the best,

 

Dani

Hi Dani
Thank you for warm welcome
Shipping labels directly from the admin assistant is the easiest way, isn't it? Those are the only printers compatible with the system?

I haven't launched yet but thank you for asking

This is an accepted solution.

Hey @Mauro06 !

 

Printing the labels directly in your admin is probably the easiest. And, since Shopify represents a large number of merchants we're able to negotiate discounted rates on your behalf! So you can take advantage of these discounts when you purchase through the admin. 

 

I took a look at the two printers that you had been looking at, and the reason these ones would not work is because they support labels up to 2.4" wide. The shipping labels provided by our carriers are set to be 4"x6" so these labels would be too big for the printers that you were looking at. 

 

Let me know if you have any further questions, I'm happy to help!

My old laminator model started to work badly with files. I work in the office with documents, so this is my main equipment. I learned about these models through a useful website on the office equipment link. I look forward to your opinions and reviews, it will help me find the best model! Thank you in advance!

Is there any label printer that allows the packing slip to print in a readable format? I have the ArkScan and it prints the shipping labels perfectly, however the packing slips are sized at 8.5x11 and I cannot seem to change the format for the life of me. I now have to use SmartShyp just to print a decent packing slip. Why does Shopify not allow the a 4x6 format? It's so frustrating having to go to another platform to print a packing slip! Any suggestions?

We bought the brother label printer and can't get it to print the long way on the 4 x 6 label.  It prints on half of it and is sideways.  How do we fix it in Shopify or on the printer?  Thanks!
