Try to copy & paste the ZPL into a Notepad++ with UTF-8 encoding and save it as a file. Then send the file to the RW420 printer via the Printer Setup Utility. It should print.

The RW420 printer is essentially a EPL and CPCL printer with ZPL emulator. If you intend to use ZPL, I'd suggest to get a Link-OS mobile printer, such as ZQ300, ZQ500 or ZQ600 series, which support ZPL natively. The RW420 has been discontinued in 2015 and the support was discontinued in 2020.
