Zebra Label Printers cleaning and care routine

Zebra printers is a leading company for mobile, small desktop and high performance label printers. Maintenance of these label printers enables quality labels production and also cut costs on repairs. Consequently, regular cleaning routines of different parts of the printers should be carried out.

The cleaning process of a zebra label printer should begin with its complete shutdown by disconnecting the printer from power source. The printer should be left to cool down before cleaning starts. Cleaning of printers requires supplies of cotton swabs, 70% Isopropyl alcohol and clean lent- free cloths. One may also require a film cleaning kit such as Save-a-Print to be used in the case where the standard clean-up is not successful.

The next step is moistening the lent- free cloth slightly with water. Use the dump cloth to wipe external surface parts of the printer so as to ensure that dirt does not get inside the printer once you open it. Use the cover release button to open the printer. All labels remaining on the printer should be removed. Proceed to wipe the internal parts of the printer using the lent- free moist cloth. The cotton swab should be dipped in the alcohol and excess liquid shaken off. This cotton swab is used to clean crevices and cracks in the printer case.

Use clean alcohol moist cotton to wipe the platen roller by wiping along the lengths of the roller. Roll the platen roller manually while wiping across it in order to ensure that the whole roller is cleaned. Replace the cotton or cloth used as it gets dirty so as to prevent smearing around of residue rather than cleaning it off. Clean softly as hard force can damage the platen roller. Similarly avoid use of sharp objects to remove residue as it will cause permanent damage.

The print head is then cleaned with clean alcohol laced cotton. Use the Save-a-Print head cleaning film if the residue doesn’t come off using cleaning instructions clearly illustrated on the packaging. Contact Zebra representatives if this is not successful or replace parts of the platen roller and print head.

The platen roller and print head should be cleaned after every label rolls printed or when quality of labels is compromised. Failure to regularly clean printers will result to low quality labels and damages requiring high repair costs.

Decorating with Italian Furniture & Accessories

Italian furniture has a variety of styles including classic, renaissance, modern contemporary, and Tuscan. When you think about Italian furniture, it is a crafted skill which is passed down from one generation to another for centuries. As time has passed, the style of furniture has changed but the quality of workmanship has remained the same. The crafters still create unique and elegant furniture using high quality material.

Renaissance Italian Furniture

Every piece of renaissance furniture incorporates ornate, very unique and large heavy designs. The carvings on the wood include carefully crafted birds, fruits, human figures and grotesque animal. The gothic and roman styles make the style unforgettable. If you are thinking of buying the furniture, you should be forewarned that it is big so it is suitable for large spaces.

Tuscan Furniture

It is the most familiar furniture from Italy. Tuscan comes in two types; the traditional type and the modern and elegant type. The elegant type comes from Florence. On the contrary, the traditional type is rustic and simple and it comes from the rural areas in Italy. Decorating using Tuscan relies on the accessories and accent and not on the furniture. The furniture is long lasting and it is good for farmhouses and country homes. Some of the most common types of wood used include fir, chestnut and cypress.

Tuscan style accessories comprise stone, metal and color. Cool Mediterranean blue and deep rich red give a feeling of friendliness and warmth. Limestone, granite and marble are mainly used in kitchens or bathrooms. All the elements are used together to give your home a relaxed and peaceful feeling. Blankets and throw pillows decorated in earth colors, colorful paintings and tapestries and wrought iron candle stands work together to provide a beautiful home. Antique rugs add warmth and color to wood or stone floors.

Contemporary Italian furniture

Although the contemporary furniture is made using the same craft as renaissance and Tuscan furniture, the final product looks completely different.  The design combines chrome, leather and wood to make an outstanding piece of furniture. In some case, glass is used in tables and this leaves the slim curvy corners of the chairs to act as focal point.

Any Italian furniture piece can serve as a functional piece as well as a modern art. The furniture is unobtrusive and clean.  There is no question as to whether you will find the best style of Italian furniture to suit your style.
