Adjusting the print job properties on the AddressRight 300

Products affected: AddressRight® 300 Printer

The printer driver describes to the printer how to print your job. It controls printer operation and allows you to send fixed and variable text and graphics to the printer. Use the properties to control and customize the printer’s output.

To access these options, in your data management software, select File > Print

To print the job, click Print.

To use special features built into the printer driver, click Preferences orPrinter Properties to open the Document Properties window.


On the Layout tab, use the Orientation menu to select Portrait or Landscape orientation.


On the Paper/Quality tab, use the Paper Source menu to select your paper source automatically or to set Normal Printingor Invert Printing.

Inverting Printing

In normal operation, printing is read from the operator side of the printer. It is sometimes necessary to turn the printing direction 180 degrees from the normal direction. This occurs when due to layout or method of binding, media must be fed in reverse direction.

To invert printing (reverse the printing direction 180 degrees):

  1. On the Paper/Quality tab, select Invert Printing from the Paper Source menu.

Advanced Options

On the Paper/Quality tab, click the Advanced button to open the Advanced Options window.


From the Paper Size menu, select the size of media to be used.

Printer Features

In Printer Features you can set the resolution of the printer, printer speed, and language the printer operates in, and add a delay to the feed to provide separation between pieces.

From the Resolution menu, set resolution of print quality. Changing resolution to a higher number (e.g. 200 DPI to 600 DPI) increases image quality. Note: Higher resolutions reduce print speed options.

Head Adjustment

Use the Head Adjustment options to make slight (0.001") fine-tuning adjustments to the positions of the printheads in relation to each other. Adjustment is used to precisely align printheads when printing graphics or type that extends beyond width of one printhead.

Each head can be moved +/- 0.048" in 0.001" increments.

  • To move the printhead toward the lead edge of the layout, use the down arrow.

  • To move the printhead away from the lead edge of the layout, use the up arrow.

When the printer is turned off, any changes made here return to the original settings.


Feed Delay

The Feed Delay menu can be used to put more space between pieces as they are printed. This gives the first piece printed more time to dry before the next piece is printed.

Adjustments are made in 0.1-second increments.
