Use a Zebra wireless printer on your Mac network

Adding a Zebra wireless printer like the GX420d to an Apple-based network can be problematic. First, the Zebra networking documentation is geared towards enterprise installations. Second, you need to have access to a Windows PC in order to configure the network interface on the printer. To begin you’ll need to know your wireless network’s name and password.

How can I take advantage of the UPS Smart Pickup® option in NRGship?

NRGship is the first UPS Ready® shipping solution to offer the UPS Smart Pickup® option, an innovative technology which automatically arranges pickups only when you have packages to ship. When your first shipment of the day is processed, NRGship automatically notifies UPS to make a UPS Smart Pickup on that day. UPS Smart Pickup is ideal for lower volume shippers who don’t need a daily pickup but prefer the convenience of driver pickup. Simply follow the steps below to quickly setup your UPS Account for Smart Pickup. If your first package is processed late in the day your pickup will be scheduled for the next day or you can manually request a UPS On-Call Pickup® or find a UPS location to drop off your package. You can find more information about Smart Pickup (and related fees) along with other services at
