I am trying to print a bitmap image on a zebra printer (TLP-2844-Z) and it comes out incredibly blurry and faint but when I print it on a laser printer it looks fine. Also, when I printer plain text to the zebra printer or the test page it comes out crystal clear. Is there something I am doing wrong?
Check the dpi of the bitmap you are printing. The TLP-2844-Z has a dpi of 203, where as the laser printer you are using is likely to be 600 or 1200 dpi, so you will see a difference in quality. Using the correct driver will help. Zebra has a lot of very similar models, and often it they have similar model names/numbers, so it can be hard to tell what is what.
