Everyone wants to do better. Whether it’s improving your health, career, or home, there’s always room to do things better. Well, what if I told you there’s a better way to design your barcode labels? I’ll do you one better, here are 6 different ways to design your barcode labels better:
TEKLYNX has developed over 3,000 native label printer drivers to provide the best overall quality for your barcode labels. Simply go to File > Select Printer > Add and then search what printer you need to use and the port on your station. With the selection of your printer, you can now leverage the printer resident features of that printer such as fonts and barcodes.
Helpful barcode creation wizards in TEKLYNX barcode label design software can help you create a new label document, insert text, and even comply with regulations. One of the most valuable wizards in our barcode label design software is our GS1 wizard. GS1 barcodes are easily and correctly generated when using the TEKLYNX GS1 wizard. You have the option to choose the symbology you need and can easily search and add the Application Identifiers (AIs) required for your barcode labels such as:
In versions 2019 and newer of LABELVIEW & CODESOFT, the GS1 barcode wizard was enhanced for ease of use and the ability to edit already created GS1 barcodes. Not on the latest version? Download a free trial today.
Companies tend to print more than one barcode label at a time. Normally, they’ll make a label for each of their products which is time-consuming and error prone. There’s an easier way! You can create one barcode label template that will drive variable data onto that template from an external data source using TEKLYNX barcode labeling software. Connecting to that data source is very easy – there's even a database connection wizard to help you get started!
LABELVIEW and CODESOFT allow you to customize your barcode label printing forms to create your ideal printing process with our new Form Editor and the updated Form Designer. Form Editor allows you to enforce data entry rules for your print users so that data is formatted correctly 100% of the time. Use Form Editor to add drop-down menus, incrementing value fields, sliders, date pickers, radio buttons, and more. Form Designer is a tool that is accessible without having to launch your barcode label software, which helps enforce user roles within your team. This eliminates steps for your print users while simultaneously lessening the stress for those who take time to create the label printing forms. Learn more in this short video:

A growing trend in the labeling world is adding colors to your barcode labels. High-resolution images created in your graphic design software can be leveraged on your barcode labels to maximize the look and feel. You also have the option to use our color picker and leverage exact RGB or CMYK color codes to print accurately to any color printer.
Technology changes every day, and the pace of change is not slowing down. To ensure your TEKLYNX barcode label software runs smoothly, we are continually improving our software solutions through new version releases to meet your business needs.
