Zebra Thermal Printer - 2844 - UPS Online - Driver???
I am using UPS online, and need to print to a thermal printer for labels.
UPS gave me a Zebra 2844, but I am unable to print to it.
Does anyone have any suggestions, or can point me in the right direction.
...since system 6

10.5.2 now has a Zebra driver built in; you can go to http://www.nrgsoft.com/services/epl_zpl.html to find directions on installing the driver properly OR purchase their application which will take care of printing for you. I have not gotten mine to print in Mac OS X either but am just getting the effort started.

My way around this mess is to download the label generated by UPS.com, then manually send it to my Zebra printer. This is preferable to copying the label image and printing it because you get full resolution, so the label looks nice and sharp.
The easy way to download the label is to use a download manager (I'm using Speed Download), and tell the DM to handle the MIME type "application/epl2". Now, every time Speed Download sees this type of file sent, it downloads it to my Mac. Once the file is on your Mac, you have to send it to the printer. So far, I do this on the command line. Just like other *nixes, you can use 'lp' to send the file. Or, if you have a network-attached Zebra, you can use NetCat to send the file: 'nc PRINTER_IP 9100 < /path/to/label/file' (substitute your Zebra's IP for "PRINTER_IP"). This technique works perfectly, though anyone shipping more than a few packages a week will find this cumbersome. Hopefully, UPS will write a Mac plugin, or better yet, someone will improve the open-source one.

Zebra printers are one of the best options which are available in the market if you are looking to print labels for your needs. A zebra printer offers all features that is required for your printing. Zebra printers provide high quality printing when compared to other normal printers.
