Tips related to Recycled White Material

  • Store label sheets in the original plastic clamshell packaging in a cool, dry place to avoid humidity. Storing label sheets in the printing environment for a short period before attempting to print, allows them to adjust to any temperature changes and stabilize after shipping, which may prevent common printing problems.
  • Prevent label sheets from being exposed to direct sunlight or flood lights.
  • Before you print onto label sheet, first print onto a blank piece of paper. Place the sheet in front of the label, and then hold the sheets up to a light to make sure the positioning is correct.
  • Before and after printing, handle label sheets by the edges of the sheet being careful not to get oil from your fingers on the printable recycled material surface. Oil may cause smudging.
  • Allow label to dry completely before stacking, handling or peeling the printed recycled material.

Troubleshooting Issues Related to Recycled White Material

  • If you experience any smearing during printing in a laser printer, we suggest selecting the "Labels" material type in printer settings.
  • If you are experiencing any smearing during printing in an inkjet printer, we suggest lowering your DPI or quality setting.
