    i can think of two options to do this:

    1) write only normal text

    get the Text from the label and write it like normal text
    How to Print Text (The Java™ Tutorials > Creating a GUI with JFC/Swing > Using Other Swing Features)

    2) make your label Printable ;)

    you must extend the JLabel class and make it printable

    Java Code:
    class MyLabel extends JLabel implements Printable{
    	public MyLabel(String text){
    	public int print(Graphics graphics, PageFormat pageFormat, int pageIndex) 	throws PrinterException {
                    Graphics2D graphics2D = (Graphics2D) graphics;
                    graphics2D.drawString(this.getText(), 72, 72);
                    return (PAGE_EXISTS);
    the 72,72 is the position (x,y) which I choose to draw the text .... you can put there what you want

    hope it helped :P

    Mak- GUI and printing are separate concepts. While what Wolfcro described is slick, it only solves the immediate question. I doubt it would allow you to print two labels at once.

    Again, Java is not made for this sort of programming. The controller class should take the data from the label and pass it to a printing class that knows how to print the data in the correct format.
