Click on the cover part you wish to download e.g.'CD'.

Click on 'Download Cover'.




Step 4

Launch the Expressit Labelling software.

Within the 'Image / Saved Designs Browser' you should see your downloaded cover.

The printer console window will open.

Remember to select the correct paper and quality settings to ensure the best possible results.

Click on 'OK' to start printing.




Step 10
