As keyer, I want to be able to print album tags to a Brother QL-810W or QL-820NWB label printer.

@MarkCLawrence What labels are you using in the printer? Looks like it might be DK-11209, but want to confirm.

One more thing… I have installed the printer drivers on the Annex Mac and defined the printer to it, so one can send print jobs to it from, for example, a browser running on that Mac. You might want to just put out the labels in html so people could print from the browser. I will install the drivers on the Music Offic Mac also.

@MarkCLawrence Awesome! In that case, PDF should work as well, right?

I have attached two samples; can you please see if you can open and print them? Try the 'one label' file first; it should print just one label. The other one should print three labels in one go.

@MarkCLawrence Thanks for testing, great news that they print!! So little effort to get this working, I am quite impressed. Though, I am a little concerned that people have to select paper size -- does that end up defaulting eventually? That is something that will need documenting.

Btw, github did not add your pic of the label sent via e-mail; can you please add it to the Issue in github? The link to access the Issue in github should be in the e-mail.

As for new fonts versus legacy, the beauty of open source is that you can open up a user story to request new fonts, and then someone can pick that up and work on it, or you can code the change and submit it yourself. The zookeeper code is in github, and is free and open source. This story was to bring a new printer online, not to change user experience; you need to open a new story for that. Feature creap is death to getting anything actually done; that is why Agile stories are atomic.
