Printers that are compatible with Bustle

For the most stable setup, we recommend using Ethernet printers (that require cabling through to your router). However there are bluetooth and wi-fi options available. USB printers do not work with Bustle.

Let's take a look.

What if my printer isn't on the list?

  • If your printer is not a Star or Epson printer it will not work with Bustle.

  • USB printers do not work with Bustle

Does Bustle work with Star or Epson printer models not on this list?
It is possible that other Star or Epson model printers will work with Bustle but until they are added to this list, they are unsupported - this means that they are not tested before any Bustle or iOS updates & if they stop working for any reason (including updates to Bustle software), we may be unable to support getting them working again.

Tip: Most Epson printers will work with Bustle. To quickly test if your printer works, grab an iPad, download the Bustle app and select the demo mode. You can try searching for and adding your printer here and if it works, you're good to go.
