Thermal Brother brand printers are compatible with IL Print! Just follow the below steps.
In order to print within Stratify, a Thermal Printer must be selected. InventoryLab does not currently offer the ability to print 30-up Labels.
Setting Up a Brother Printer with IL Print
Before you begin, please ensure you have followed the steps to install the Brother drivers on your computer. You can find the latest drivers here.
To get started, select your name in the upper right corner add choose Settings.
Click Printing from the left menu.
Click the Set Up Your Printer button.
Once selected, you will see the option to use the Standard print method (to print using your web browser) or to use IL Print. Click Try IL Print.
You will be directed to download IL Print so that it can be installed on your computer. Click Download IL Print to proceed.
The IL Print application will automatically begin to download, which you will typically see in the lower-left corner of your browser.
If you do not have downloaded files set to open automatically once complete, you can click on the arrow next to the file in your browser and select Open to launch the installation wizard.
Note: If the download does not appear in your browser bar at all, try navigating to This PC>Downloads and double-clicking IL Print 1.0.exe to open it on Windows OS. For Mac OS, navigate to Finder>Downloads and double click IL Print 1.0.pkg to open it.
Follow the prompts in the installation wizard to install IL Print.
In the case that you do not have an updated version of Java installed, you may see an Installation Failed error. If this occurs, follow the prompts to update your Java software and then re-try the installation.
Once you have received the Successful Install message, the IL Print application should be open and running on your computer.
If you're using Windows, check that the IL Print icon is visible in your system tray, which can be found on the right side of your Windows Taskbar.
If you're using a Mac, check that the IL Print icon is visible in your dock with a dot under it, which indicates that the app is active and running. (Your dock will either be located across the bottom or along one side of your screen.)
Now that IL Print is running, it's time to navigate back to Stratify to click Next to finish up the setup.
Select your printer model, label size, and orientation if applicable to the label type.
After making your selections, click Complete Setup.
Your printer will now be displayed under the Manage Printer section in your Print Settings.
Clicking the Remove Printer button will clear your print settings for a fresh start.
Clicking the Print a Test Label button will print an example label to check your current settings.
Clicking the Re-Download IL Print button will download the application again if needed.
As a Windows user with continuous labels, you'll also need to set up your Brother Print Preference settings to match the label preference you chose in Stratify:
That's it! You're now ready to print properly formatted FNSKU labels using Stratify.
For information on the options available under the Manage Label Printing section of your Print Settings page, please see Print Settings.
