This concludes the Sharp printer setup.
Sharp does a good job of updating their print drivers along with the latest operating systems. The PCL6 driver is the most useful for Windows computers, the PPD is the best option for the Macs. Skelton does not condone using the universal drivers. They do not have the same abilities as the PCL6 or PS drivers.
Different drivers work better with different programs or applications, so you might want to add both PCL and PS (post script) drivers to your computer. They interpret colors and fonts differently, so if you are having issues with other of those things, try the other driver.
If you have one of the newest generations of Sharps with a model number that ends in 40, they have Pantone color matching built in. It just has to be activated. Contact your local Sharp dealer to make use of this feature. Choose from your Pantone color swatch while designing to get the desired output.
