Don’t rush the clock! Always install CoPOS updates after-hours in the evening.

- CoPOS can print your store’s logo on receipts. Each printer will need to be programmed with your store’s logo. You have two options for software. If you have an Apple Mac computer: Download the LabelScope App from Semireg Industries. LabelScope will program BIXOLON receipt printers with a graphic logo. In addition to receipt printers, LabelScope can be used to print complex graphics to Zebra label printers. Questions about LabelScope can be directed to firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com. If you have a Windows computer: Download NV Image from BIXOLON. You must download the correct version for your label printer.
