directprint.io supports SATO label printers via the SATO SBPL or Zebra EPL driver (SEPL mode).
SATO device setup
If your SATO label writer is set to AUTODETECT the label language format, e.g. displaying AUTO, on the front of the machine or reporting as lanuage autodetcting from the SATO web administration portal then choosing the directprint.io SBPL mode will not require any configuration changed to the unit.
If your unit is configured for a specific language (e.g. SZPL) please change the unit to AUTO or SBPL or SEPL modes accordingly.
