 Beginner's Guide to Label Software.

Walkthrough Creating Your First Label.

Free Label Software link download.

You have a newly acquired Zebra Thermal Transfer printer and need to create your first label. This is very easy to accomplish even without prior knowledge of barcoding or labeling.  First, you need to install the label software on your computer. Lets start with a free version from Zebra, found at the link below.

ZebraDesigner for Developers 3 Software Downloads | Zebra

Zebra Designer is basic label software which allows you design your own label with a familiar Microsoft Office-style interface. If you need more advanced options such as connecting to a database or ERP system integration then you will need to purchase the full software license.

First - Download and install the software.

Before you start designing your first label you will need to install the proper driver for your printer. Connect the USB port of your computer to the USB port of your printer. Turn on your printer and the printer driver should download automatically.

You can also download the drivers from the link provided in the software highlighted in Image 1. Other connection options from your computer to the printer include, Bluetooth, WIFI, serial, and ethernet.
