3 Ways to Print Your Barcode Labels Better

BY: TONY BIENIEWSKI / DATE: 11/07/2019 / TOPICS: LABEL DESIGN, ENTERPRISE LABEL MANAGEMENT, PRINT AUTOMATION

Without change there’s often no room for innovation or improvement. That’s why it’s important to evaluate your label printing system and process regularly to look for ways to be better. One of the most important aspects of your barcode label printing system is your printing process – it’s the key to your finished product. Here are three ways TEKLYNX software can help you print barcode labels…better. 

 

1. GENERATE LABEL PRINT JOBS FROM SEPARATE DEVICES

One of the first major steps to take when you’re looking to print barcode labels more efficiently is seeking out ways to eliminate manual steps in your barcode label printing process. One way of kick-starting that is with triggering print jobs from devices that are currently a part of your labeling environment. With device integration, variable data is printed on barcode labels automatically, eliminating any need for manual data entry.

 

PortWatch, a feature in CODESOFT, allows you to collect data from several devices such as:

 

Triggering a label print job from a device creates a greater level of efficiency that ultimately reduces manual error and increases print speed in your barcode label printing system.

 

2. UTILIZE FORMS TO DESIGN YOUR IDEAL LABEL PRINTING PROCESS

Using forms in your label printing process can separate print users from the design interface to ensure data is formatted correctly and no unintended edits are made. Form Designer is a tool that helps enforce user roles within your team, distinguishing between the label designer and the person that clicks print. Form Design is unique in the sense that the print user doesn't even have to open the label design software in order to print labels.

 

Form Editor is similar to Form Designer in the sense that they both enforce data entry so your formatting will always be correct. Form Editor allows you to add unique items onto your form for a personalized & efficient experience, built right into your label designer.

3. PRINT LABELS DIRECTLY FROM YOUR BUSINESS SYSTEM

Set up your barcode label printing system to monitor a database to populate variable data and automatically print barcode labels – without any human interaction necessary. Having your barcode label printing process fully automated with your business system means less time spent interacting with your label designer.

 

How does it work?

1. Add data to business system

2. Database receives & processes data

3. Database sends barcode label print job

4. Barcode labels print!
