Printing Labels From A Courier Or Other Website

Below you'll find a tutorial teaching you how to set up and use the Peninsula Thermal Printer Driver to print labels directly from a website to your thermal printer on Mac.

Please note all sites have different label formats

You will only need to complete the following instructions once.






Above is a Youtube video we made to show you how to print shipping labels from other couriers.
Below are step by step instructions that follow the same steps as in the video.



1. Setting up the website to print to your thermal printer



a)
Make sure your printing preferences for labels are set to print to a Laser or Inkjet printer.

Do Not Choose Thermal Printer, It Will Not Work On A Mac


b)

Print a shipping label on the website.


c)



The system print dialog will open.
Click the PDF button in the bottom left of the print dialog and choose "Save as PDF..." then choose a location to save the PDF to.
(You will need this later to feed to the Thermal Utility to set the page extraction settings in the next step)

Please continue to step 2.



2. Setting up your thermal printer for printing



a)

Open the Thermal Utility.


b)


Follow the onscreen steps until you reach the "Choose what applications you are printing from" step and select
"Web Browser (ie Safari, Chrome etc)".

Click the "Next" button.


c)


Select "Other Website Or Application" from the menu.


d)


Click the "Next" button.


e)


A window will open. Drag the PDF file we saved earlier onto the window.


f)


Drag the image and use the controls at the bottom to correctly position the area you wish to print (the label section) onto the label.


g)


When it is positioned correctly click save, to save the extraction settings.


h)


As this printer is now set up specifically for this website we recommend giving it a different name.

You may install the same printer multiple times with different settings and a different name using the Thermal Utility allowing you to
set the extraction up for different websites and applications and simply choose the printer on the print dialog to print with those settings.
Click next when you are happy with the name.


i)


Click Install printer.


j)


The installation will take a few seconds and then the installation complete message will show. The printer is now installed and you may
close the Thermal Utility.

The setup is now complete simply return to the website and print your labels selecting the printer we just installed.
