My barcode label printer prints blank labels


Latest update: - Sam Pallesen

Problem

Your barcode label printer is feeding barcode labels but nothing is being printed on them.

Setup

  • Vend for Mac or PC
  • Dymo Barcode Label Printer

Cause

This is often caused by the orientation of the barcode labels. Putting the barcode labels in upside down is not difficult as many printers allow you to do this without giving you any kind of warning or error.

Solution

Putting in the barcode labels with the opposite side up should resolve this issue.

Additional Information

Some barcode labels come with distinctive markings as to which side is the top such as places to peel off the barcode label. Examining the barcode labels for these can save you some trial and error.
