What printers can be used and supported with BarTender Cloud?
BarTender Cloud is able to generate a PDF file for printing by default without additional setup.
In order to print to physical printers, you will need to install the BarTender Print Gateway. The BarTender Print Gateway makes your installed client printers available to BarTender Cloud. After installing the BarTender Print Gateway Service, BarTender Cloud will be able to automatically detect installed client printers to print and also take advantage of any specific printer capabilities (if using one of the nearly 8,000 Drivers by Seagull). Drivers by Seagull are available here.
However, some limitations currently exist with printers that the BarTender Print Gateway Service can support. The BarTender Print Gateway Service currently does not support the following:
- Printers that require bi-directional communication commonly used with CIJ(Continuous Ink Jet) printers and also some card printers.
- Printing TrueType or custom fonts that are downloaded to and stored directly on printers. For more information on font support, click here.
For printing using the BarTender Mobile App with BarTender Cloud, you can find more information in the article here.
