Printer and Paper

The BoxHero label printing feature is compatible with all types of printers and papers.

Standard Printer

You can print the barcodes using a standard printer on A4 label sheets (sticker type) that could be purchased through any stationery store or online shopping mall. Popular manufacturers like Formtec offer such label sheets.

The dimensional information for commonly used label sheets is preloaded in our system so you can select the type of paper and print without specifying dimensions.

Thermal Transfer Printers / Direct Thermal Printers

TSC and Zebra printers are the most well-known brands, while XPrinter is a Chinese brand that offers affordable models.

Simply purchase thermal transfer/ direct thermal label sheets in the desired size and install them in the printer to print.

Troubleshooting

Barcodes printing in a rotated position

If the paper size is not properly set, it can result in the barcode being printed in a rotated position. Please access the system printer settings System Control > Printer Setting and configure the default paper size accordingly.

Barcodes or QR codes appearing in red and unidentifiable

If there is an unprintable value within the barcode or QR code, the red box is printed. Please verify that the values assigned to the barcode area are alphanumeric or numeric.
