TSC TTP-247 Spine Labels from Webby

Step 1: Configure TSC TTP-247 Printer.

  1. Make sure your printer drivers are up to date.
  2. Under My Computer à Open Control Panel à Devices and Printers
  3. Right click on your TSC TTP-247 printer and select "Printing Preferences".
  4. Under the Page Setup Tab, edit your stock.
  1. Under the stock tab, put in the appropriate media and type.

Step 2: Build Your Print Template

  1. From item status, item bucket, or holdings view, select Actions à Print Labels.
  2. Configure your settings tab. Make sure you save your template.

Step 3: Configure your Print Dialog box

  1. From the label settings, click Print in the upper right hand corner to prompt the Print Dialog Box.
  2. Click on More Settings and select the name of the paper size you created in Step 1.
  3. Set margins to none and make sure options for background graphics and headers and footers are deselected.
  4. Adjust Scale if necessary.


You will get one blank label at the end of your print queue. I haven't been able to find a way to eliminate this yet.


  1. The Print Dialog box won't open when I click on Print.
    1. Make sure Hatch is disabled. Spine Label printing does not work well with Hatch. It is recommended that you either remove Hatch completely from the workstation or, if you need Hatch for other functions, create a second Chrome profile without Hatch to be used specifically for cataloging and spine label printing.
  1. I have a lot of blank labels in between printed labels.
    1. Double check your Label Template and printer configuration. Pay special attention to your gap height.
    2. Try adjusting your scale in the print dialog. We found scaling back to 95 eliminated blank labels in between printed labels.
  1. I don't like the font/style.
    1. You can change font, size, and weight.  
    2. We tested the following fonts and found that they worked well: Arial, Arial Black, Garamond, Courier, Comic Sans MS, Verdana.
