Three Ways to Print Bar Code Labels

There are two easy ways to print bar code labels using our bar code fonts.

1) The bar code utility program that came with your font package has templates for all standard size label sheets. It will also take a custom label template if you purchase custom size labels. Start our utility program (for this example we will use the BarUPC program, but all of our packages work the same way).  Enter the data you want to turn into a bar code and click on the Make button. Then click on the Label button. You will see the following screen:

Select the size of the label you want to print your bar code on. You can select by physical size, number of labels per sheet, or the Avery® label number. Then click the Print Labels button. Your word processor will start and open the label template you selected. Paste your bar code into a label (Put your cursor into any label cell and press Ctrl-V to paste the label.).  You can also add text or graphics as needed.
