Bryce 24K and Bryce 30K Printers

Follow instructions for Direct Imprint Printers, but change the Detail band height to 2.95 inches. There is only one paper size option in the printer driver. In the label template, anything in the top 1 1/2 inches will print using the first head on the printer and anything in the bottom 1 1/2 inches will print on the second head on the printer. Adjust the heads accordingly to print where you want on the mail piece.

Follow instructions for Direct Imprint Printers, but change the Detail band height to 1.5 inches.

Rena DA615 printers:

Follow instructions for Direct Imprint Printers, but change the Detail band height to 2 inches.
