Affordability Meets High-Quality
Zebra’s feature-rich, competitively priced GK888 desktop printer
brings Zebra quality, durability and reliable performance to many
low- to medium-volume, direct thermal and thermal transfer printing
applications. With the same mechanical design as the legacy 888 DT/
TT series, it allows customers to easily migrate to the new GK888.
Designed exclusively for Chinese users, the GK888 comes preloaded
with traditional and simplified Chinese font sets including SimSun
Compact Design Filled with Powerful Features
The GK888 printer’s compact, space-saving design contains a powerful
32-bit processor for fast label throughput, and a large memory for
more graphics storage, longer (991 mm) label formats, and faster
processing. The GK888 supports a 108 mm media width for standard
desktop applications. It also includes both EPL™ and powerful ZPL®
programming languages—making it easy to integrate with other Zebra
printers—while its three interfaces and 10/100 Ethernet option offers
flexibility in connecting with your local or networked system. Peeler/
dispenser and cutter options extend the GK888 printer’s versatility to
meet an even greater variety of applications.

* Spacing of Asian characters is controlled via the i
command. The formula for CPI is 203 / (32 + i). Thus,
as i increases, CPI decreases. For example: If i = 2,
CPI = 203 / 34 = 6.0.
