Setting up your Printer

Installing the Printer on your Computer

The first step in connecting the printing feature is to install the relevant software for the printer on your computer.
 
NOTE: To ensure that first time setup is correct and easy, we recommend that you closely follow the instructions for printer installation by Brother. Currently, the only printing compatible printers are the Brother QL-710 or QL-720.
 
Brother has different drivers for each compatible label printer. Visit the Brother website and download the driver software, click here: for the 710 model and for the 720 model. You’ll have to click:
  1. Downloads
  2. Then select your operating system.
  3. You’ll need to download the Printer Drive
  4. And the Printer Setting Tool.

Some tips for an easier install:
 
  1. Only plug the printer in via USB when the Brother instructions tell you to.
  2. Make sure the power cord is properly inserted.
  3. To benefit from Brother’s 24/7 support service we suggest that you download the Brother iPrint and Label App on your iPad.
You will want to go to this link to download the driver, wireless setup from the Brother website. You will most likely be prompted to download Java as well while going through the set up on the desktop.

Connecting the Printer to the iPad

Now that you’ve installed the printer driver software onto your computer, make sure that your iPad is connected to the same wireless network as the printer.
 
NOTE: You can change the printer’s wireless network via the Printer Settings tool.
 
  1. Open the zkipster app
