Problem with Label Creator printing


Victek123

Question

I've just started using Roxio EMC 9 on Vista and am having a problem with the label creator. I'm using labels on 8.5 x 11 sheets that originally came with a CD Stomper kit. When I print a label it is printed in the wrong corner of the page. The label sheet has two labels, one in the upper left and the other in the lower right corner. There doesn't appear to be a way to re-position the image in Label Creator. Any help will be much appreciated.

Thanks, that helps :). I couldn't figure out how to select the CD Stomper template. It's working OK now, though I do see the need to fine tune the position a little. By the way, why is there a separate applet for label printing called "Label Laser Disk"? It confusing, and seems redundant.

Nope, you print to LightScribe, the proper term, with the same program.

Hello,

 

 

 

Which paper type are you using in the Label Creator printer settings? Based on the layout you described, you should be able to use the "Memorex Discs" paper type (set the Media to "Commercial Paper" to see a list of available label templates under Paper Type). The label in the "Upper Left" is printed if only one copy is required.

 

As with all of the templates, you'll still need to calibrate the printer. And, once calibrated, you'll likely need to make further adjustments (under "Preferences") to the overprint and fine tuning. Yes, it's a bit of an annoying process, but once it's done, you don't have to do it again.

 

If you're only printing one label at a time, you don't want to waste the second label on the sheet. So, for the next label, just flip the paper around when you put it in the printer. The labels I use, fortunately, are centered (H & V) on the sheet, so I can use the same settings to print both labels. If the labels you use are not centered, you'll need to change the overprint and fine tuning values.

 

Hint: I have a spreadsheet with the overprint and fine tuning settings for each label layout I use. this way, when I switch label types, I don't need to re-calibrate the printer, I just changes the overprint and fine tuning values under "Preferences".
