Frequently Asked Questions
No, the DiTi™️ 203iD is a direct thermal printer and, as such, does not require an ink ribbon or any other source of ink to print. Please contact our technical support team with any questions you may have.
This printer can print various types of direct thermal labels and tags. Please contact our technical support team if you would like to receive further information on if a specific label can be used with this printer.
No, this printer can use labels on a 1” (25.4 mm) cardboard or plastic core.
No, the DiTi contains no DRM technology and can be used with direct thermal labels from various third-party manufacturers.
No, the label detection system works differently from that present in a DYMO printer. The DiTi™️ 203iD can use labels with either a gap, a notch, or a black mark, while the DYMO relies on a combination of a notch and black mark for label detection.
Yes, the printer has an opening in the back to allow feeding of labels from an external source in case you would like to use larger label rolls.
We do not recommend exceeding 500 printed labels per day with this model. Please contact our technical support team if you need a recommendation for a printer that can print more labels than that daily.
No, this printer does not contain an RFID encoder. Please contact our technical support team in case you are looking for a label printer with RFID encoding capabilities.
No, standard shipping labels have a size of 4’’ x 6’’ (101.6 mm x 152.4 mm). However, the maximum print width of the DiTi printer is only 3.54’’ (80 mm).
This issue can be addressed by increasing the heat transferred to the label. Please refer to the manual to learn more. Please contact our technical support team if you require further assistance.
The printer will do a quick auto-calibration once the lid is closed. However, you can manually calibrate the printer if needed. To do so, please press and hold the feed button until the LED turns from blue to green twice and reverts back to blue.
This printer comes standard with an UltraLite version of BarTender™, which allows for basic functionality such as manual data entry or data serialization. Please contact our technical support team to inquire about the full-feature versions of BarTender.
The LED light on the front of the printer indicates its status. Please refer to the manual to see the meaning of the various LED colors or why the LED is blinking.
