I think I'm going to cry.

This fucking shitty fucking printer!!

I bought some labels yesterday to try to cut down the amount of work required to send out Christmas cards. I have found the correct label template in OpenOffice, and set them up.

When the printer prints on normal paper, the labels are all in the correct positions. When it prints on the labels, it prints way too near the top of the page, so they're totally out of alignment. WTF is it playing at?

I thought maybe the labels were too shiny so they don't feed properly or something like that, but noooo - on the second pass, they print correctly. But on the second pass they already have the misfed previous address on.
