For food land drink labelling ask us for an example label and product list template that includes the standard list of allergens. When the selected product label is printed the label system will automatically bold any allergens found in your ingredients listings saving many hours of work.
Automated expiry date
The system will check the shelf life days held in the product list for that product and by checking todays date on the computer will automatically add the shelf life days and print the correct expiry date as 'best before' for fresh or "use by' for frozen goods.
Form data entry
A form can be set for the user so at print time they can enter other manually keyed day such as a batch or lot number for example.
As well as popular product barcodes like EAN13 BarTender Professional lets you combine information to create so called concatenated EAN128 barcodes containing say product number, expiry date, lot number and more.
Some users will find it useful to serial number each and every label printed for tracking and traceability purposes.
The serial number printed can be used to account / count products as well as being incorporated into a barcode as a unique product serial number for example.
If using colour label printers, a colour image can be included as a background so that the variable product data is overlaid to provide for professional combination of picture and product data. The picture or background can be automatically changed by including the data source in a product list column.
Curving text to fit a background label design or to create text in a circle say round a jar lid can be a useful feature.
