I want to print vehicle certification labels in bulk. Is that an option via WorkTruckCert?
Yes, bulk printing requires a thermal transfer printer with resolution of 203 dots per inch that can handle a 4-inch web width and a maximum outside diameter of the 8-inch roll. Certain industrial printers meet these specifications (such as the ZT200 series, ZT400 series, ZT510, and ZT600 series). All recommended printers require a thermal transfer ribbon; desktop direct thermal transfer is not compatible. 

Using a thermal transfer printer requires installation of the Zebra Browser Print application. The following operating systems, browsers and printers are supported.

Operating systems         Windows 7, Windows 10, mac OS X 10.10+
Browsers                         Chrome 51+
