You can set a default printer for every template you use in ShipWorks and change that default at any time. Your invoices, packing slips, reports, and labels can all be set to go to the same default printer, or you can set a different default printer for each one. 

Please note: By default packing slip, invoice, and commercial invoice templates are designed to be printed to a standard 8.5 x 11 inch printer.  The thermal label template is designed to be printed to a thermal printer.

First Things First
