If you've chosen to use your Eltron or Zebra thermal printer through RevolutionParts label printing instead of generating labels as PDFs, you'll need to follow this simple set up process.

  1. From your Manage Dashboard, click on the gear icon in the upper-right corner of the page. 
  2. On the left side menu, choose Shipping, then Printing Setup
  3. Next, choose the type of label printer you have from the drop-down menu.
  4. Next you'll need to install and run the Print Server by selecting the operating system you're using. Windows and Mac are the current options.
  5. Once you've clicked the link for your operating system, the .exe file should begin downloading automatically (Macs will download a compressed .tar file containing the application).
  6. The images in this article are from the Google Chrome web browser. Each browser will look slightly different, and you may need to find the file on your computer after you download it to manually install/run it.
  7. NOTE: Internet Explorer and some security programs have been known to treat this file as a security risk. We assure you that you can ignore this and proceed with the download/install without harm to your system.
    • The print server needs to be running in the background in order to print labels. We strongly recommend pinning the print server .exe file to the Start menu so that it open every time your computer restarts or you log out/in.
    • It doesn't matter which web browser opens the print server, since the program runs in the background anyway.
  8. This is the last step! After you've run the print server's .exe file you should automatically be taken to a new web browser tab or window for with a web address of 'http://localhost:8080/'. All you have to do now is select the printer you'd like to use from the drop-down menu on the upper-right-hand side of the page, as seen in the image below.


    If the 8080 port isn't populating in the address bar it is because it is currently being used. Most likely you have two of our print servers running at the same time.

    The quickest/easiest way to solve this is to reboot your computer and only open one of our print server files. If you do not want to reboot, you'll need to open the task manager -> go to processes -> end all the processes called print-server. Once you run the file again, you should see 8080.


You're all set from here! Once you've chosen the correct printer, as long as it's installed correctly and your printer is on and ready, you can print out a test label.
