Hello all,

I'm trying to print a barcode from Excel to a Zebra printer. The barcode is scannable, but the print is showing a lot of artifact.
All of the text (even really small fonts) looks fine/sharp when being printed.
I tried a .jpg and a .png variant of the barcode in the label. Is there any way to improve this?
Some picture printing or compression setting i dont know about for ZEBRA printers?

The issue isn't in the printer. The issue is the print quality, when printing an image from an excel sheet.
I was just looking for people with similar experience and to see if the only way around this would be to print the barcode with actual barcode fonts!
