Hi Andrew!

I may need a bit more info from you in order to help troubleshoot this one.  Generally speaking, you want the default margins for the printer to be set to 0 on all sides.  If the SSCC ID is printing over the bar code you will want to work with Zebra directly.  It may help to also set the Zebra printer to the default printer on the computer you use to print them.  This will ensure the WebForms window pulls in the correct printing margins from the get go.  Let me know if those steps don't help correct the issue.

yes, we have SSCC ID's printing over bar codes on toshiba and dell computers here.  we tried on firefox, chrome and explorer.  we updated java tversion o the newest and cleared internet and java temporary files.

what thermal printers does SPS recommend for printing 4x6 inch labels from webforms?  we are open to buying a new printer.

A Zebra printer (including the one you have) should definitely work.  Zebra has a hotline which works with customers on these issues.  

Phone: +1 847 634 6700 
Toll-free: +1 866 230 9494

I recommend reaching out to them prior to investing in a new printer.  I believe last time this issue arose, it had to do with a printer driver.  But they should be able to help and pin point the issue.
