Set Up Printers in MacOS

Before you start to print documents in LABL, you must ensure the printers are configured correctly for the documents you wish to print (labels, packing slips, pick lists, etc)

The setup process for printers on your Mac inclides four general steps:

1. Connect the printer via USB to the Mac you want to use as your printer workstation

2. Download the appropriate printer driver (not required for all printer models)

3. Add the printer to your Printers & Scanners System Preferences

4. Configure the printer preferences in CUPS (if CUPS is not yet enabled on your Mac, you'll receive a web interface error when you attempt to access it)

The exact steps to configure your printer will vary depending on the printer's make and model. This article provides setup instructions for the most common thermal label printer brands - Zebra, Dymo, Citizen, and Rollo - as well as the basic steps for a standard desktop printer like an inkjet or laser printer.
