Try printing the label on plain paper first to see if it's a printer or DESI problem

Check your printer set up for:

Using the correct feed tray,

Correct paper type

Correct paper length

Or use a manual feed if available


Sometimes the thoughts in my head get so bored, they go for a stroll through my mouth. This is rarely a good thing.

Use a removable glue stick and stick the back side of DESI to a plain piece of paper and try that in your printer.

This is what is in the DESI manual

Quote
Chapter 9 - Troubleshooting
Printing Desis
“My printer feeds the DESI sheets through without printing anything”
or “My printer only prints the first few lines of the desi.”

This is caused by the “end-of-page” sensor in your printer. This sensor
“sees” the holes in some desi sheets, and assumes that it has reached the
end of the page. The printer will then stop printing and eject the page. A
test to verify that this sensor is causing the problem is to print a desi on a
plain sheet of paper. If your desis print normally on a plain sheet of paper
but not on a desi sheet, the sensor is causing the
problem.

Solution: Desi Telephone Labels, Inc. produces specially-designed
Post-it™ notes, called DESI Backers, that can be placed on the
back of the DESI page to cover up the holes that are triggering
the end-of-page sensor. See the front cover of this manual for
information on ordering DESI Backers.

Which sounds like you tried already.

Try a dark-colored paper as the backing paper and see if that makes a difference.

You guys are a genius, PTL.
Takes a little more time but that's part of it.
I had called desi help line they did not offer the info you gentlemen have.
Had also called hp printer help line with no help either.
Thank you again.
