Print Quality


Using a Datamax printer Mark III. Previously used Labelvision for making retail shelf labels. When using Jaspersoft I get much "thinner" characters that have a dotted appearance. Wondering if there is a way to increase the the quality of print job?

You could try to increase the DPI from default 72dpi to something higher... but I doubt if this will work. 

The label printer normally interpretes data in ther given printer language (like zebra or something like that)... when sending labels from a JasperReport it's passed as a 2D PrintJob (so like an image)... that's why the quality is mostly much worse than before.

So my experiences over the last years in several customer projects. Sometimes it helps to change the fonts to some of the native supported by the printer.
