Templates for Brother QL-710W?

Postby jpmd70 » May 21st, 2014, 7:53 am

Hi,
Does L&A have templates for the Brother QL-710W? I was looking into getting this printer because it is wireless for the iMac I have. Any body have experience w/ the QL-710W or should I just go with Dymo? Looking to just print out basic address labels and maybe the occasional shipping label.
Thank for any information you guys can pass along,
Patrick

Hi Partick,

To use L&A with any label printer, the two things are important:
- support for label paper (rolls);
- printer driver installed on Mac OS.

L&A provides a number of Brother labels. To check this list, you need to install the program, and open a new label document. Then select File > Change Layout in the main menu, and select Brother as the manufacturer. There is the online list of supported papers, but I cannot say if it is up-to-date:

Hello Patrick,
despite the compatibility with Brother QL-710/720 models I have only success with Brother DK-Labels (pre-formatted labels). And it works pretty well if you will keep in mind that the 3mm spaces to all label-edges will be unprinted.

but unfortunately I can't print on DK-Tapes (endless rolls). There will be no print-preview and if I try to print this void image my QL-720NW hangs immediately.

I have already tried the customized "folder binder"-templates prepared by Nick in the following topic:
/viewtopic.php?f=29&t=12245
but it didn't help me also.

Hope that Nick will eliminate this bug in future L&A releases.

cheers,
Alexei

Hi,

I'll remind the developers about this problem.
