Printing Codes

Banner printer codes (in the table GTVPRNT) consist of the eight character official printer name followed by a one or two character suffix that indicates a different form requirements (page orientation, number-up, lines per page, etc), or printer handling (simplex or duplex, input paper tray selection, header/trailer page suppression, etc). Listed below is an explanation of these suffixes.

Notes

(1) For MAILING LABELS, if you have an HP printer, you MUST have the printer default form value set to 66 lines. If you do not, the number of labels printed down the page will not be correct.


The MAILING LABELS form code is designed to be used with sheets of AVERY stock#5160.


Also, it is HIGHLY recommended that you print on PLAIN PAPER and photocopy onto the label stock. This greatly reduces the risk that a label will detach itself from the sheet and get stuck inside your expensive ($$$$) printer, making it unusable for many weeks until it can be repaired. If you must print the labels using your printer, please be sure to use a straight paper path. This is usually done by opening the manual feed (or tray 1) cover, rather than using one of the normal paper trays. Please consult your printer manual for
correct operation of your printer when using non paper stock. Failure to follow the manufacturer's recommendations may result in damage to your printer. Be smart, read the manual. If you don't have a manual, consult the manufacturer's website for an electronic version.
