To ensure printed tag’s security, print settings must be configured correctly. Print settings will be automated in the future to reduce configuration complexity across printer brands/models with different print settings. In the meantime, please configure manually:

  1. 1. Ignore print setting's "Presets" field, which will be overwritten by custom settings like scale, print quality and paper type.
  2. 2. Set “Scale” to 100% so that blueprint prints as its intended width and height dimensions
  3. 3. Set print quality Dots Per Inch (DPI) setting to maximum (highest resolution setting) or custom DPI configured for your tag blueprint pdf.
  4. 4. Set “Paper Type” to “Photo Glossy Paper” even if you use normal quality paper to print (you do not need to use photo paper if you do not have it).

Example print settings for a specific printer model. Paper type and print quality can be found at the "Paper Type/Quality" drop down menu.
