Left-Aligned vs. Center-Aligned Printers


Left-aligned printers is the standard printing mechanism. Here, the printhead pressure plungers need to be adjusted according to label width.



Center-aligned printers provide a uniform printhead pressure for all label widths, so there is no need to adjust the pressure plungers. Here, the media guide and roller are aligned to increase print accuracy, with minimal to zero shifting. They are ideal for very narrow (less than 1”) labels.
