  1. 1

    Lubricate the device with Monarch Lubricant 086989. Squeeze a drop on each side of the label chute. Place four drops on the backing paper. Spread the lubricant with your fingers. Proper lubrication prevents problems with feeding, adhesive build-up and tearing of backing paper.

  2. 2

    Print 15 to 20 labels. If the Monarch 1110s printing is smeared or distorted, printing multiple labels will use up excess ink.

  3. 3

    Apply pressure when squeezing the lever. There are times when the ink might be printing too light. The Monarch 1110 will produce more ink if you squeeze the lever harder.

  4. 4

    Check the print location of the labels don't feed. There's a disk slot on each the side of the Monarch 1110. Place a small coin in the disk slot labelled "HOLD." Slowly turn the coin clockwise until it clicks. Print a label. Make sure the print location is correct. If not, repeat the process until the print location is corrected.
