Over the years I must have printed thousands of (Avery type) adhesive labels using several different printers. They can sometimes be a bit tricky to set up, but provided measurements are all carefully calibrated the result is usually very satisfactory. However, I have now met my match with an HP Photo-smart C4100 - an excellent printer that reproduces superb photographic images and clear and accurate print for text documents etc. But try to print a sheet of 21 (3x7) labels and it utterly refuses to get the vertical pitch right. I set it to 3.8cm and it stubbornly prints at 3.6cm so consequently the top row of labels are the only ones to be in the correct position. And if I increase the vertical pitch figure it tells me that I can't now fit all the page into the print area.
I can't believe it is an actual problem with the feed mechanism, because if so the photos would not be printed at such high quality. Anybody with any suggestions for avenues I could explore? I'm all out of ideas. Many thanks.
On mine (Word > Labels) Vertical Pitch of 3.8cm the Top margin is 1.5 cm
There is a pre-set one Rank Xerox 003R93356 which give 3 x 7 labels Top margin: 1.5 Side margin 0.7 Vertical pitch: 3.8 Horizontal pitch: 6.6 Page size A4 (21 x 29.7) Label height: 3.8 Label width: 6.35
Didn't see your post. Yes, almost identical to the Avery settings. The strange thing is that when I print on my HP Deskjet the labels come out perfectly - whereas using the exact same settings and labels the Photosmart makes a mess of it.
