Printing labels from Odoo

Does anyone have experience of printing labels from Odoo using special label printers, like this:


What would be the best approach? Is it possible to just create precisely formatted PDF, that would printout correctly, or do we have to use special middleware to do the prints?

We have developped a specific report for one of our customer to use SATO CL 408E for their labels.

First, we have found the correct driver for the printer, ensure that it accepts standard PDF (the key of success) and installed it on  the customer network.

Then, we've just developped a specific PDF report with the condition one label per page. You can easily design your label with the size of your labels.

Then, just configure the printing option by default with the correct layout of your labels and that's it.

The driver of the printer should normally manage with the offset configuration between two labels, etc...

Hope it helps !

would you mind to post where you found the driver that makes this possible? Also I wonder whether you have figured a way to print labels based on a SO? The real challenge in labeling due to our experience is to print small quantities of many different labels in one procedure rather then printing the same label 1000 times.

another (maybe naive) question. Which machine does the actual printing? I guess it must be the client computer and not the server that hosts your odoo, right? So the driver you use is a windows driver?
