Labels are an important part of coreSTORE. Because there are many different uses for labels, you will probably need access to a lot of different types of labels. If you are familiar with how to format labels, follow the directions below. If you are not comfortable formatting labels on your own, click here to go to the Help Desk and submit a ticket, and we will create a label for you.
In order to create a new label type, go to the Inventory module and select the Labels sub-module. In order to add a new label type, click [Add Label] to see the Add Label pop-up window (1). In order to edit an existing label type, click [Edit] next to the label type you want to edit, which will show the Edit Label pop-up window (2).
The following options are exactly the same on both screens.
(Note: To see images of the drop-down lists, click on the letter in parentheses, for example "Select from the drop-down list (A)". This will bring you to the drop-down list section of this article.)
- Preview (1): Click the Preview button to see a preview image of the label.
- Name (2): Input a name for the label.
- Print Language (3): Select from the drop-down list (A) which print language is used to format the label (ZPL, ESC/POS, EPCL, Evolis, PDF, or PNG). The default and by far the most common print language used in coreSTORE is ZPL, so it is recommended that you select ZPL.
- Default Printer (4): Select from the drop-down list (this drop-down list contains the printers that are connected to your coreSTORE via qzTray) which printer you want to print the label from (you will need to have qzTray connected to your coreSTORE in order to print a label). (Tip: This option is really important and useful, because you can have specific label types printed from specific printers. For example, you could have Bound Book labels print from one printer, and have Item labels print from a different printer.)
- Host (5): You can specify an IP address for the label.
- Dots Per Inch (DPI) (6): Select from the drop-down list (B) how many dots per inch are used in the label (203 or 300). (Tip: 203 is the recommended selection.)
- Width (In Inches) (7): Input the width of the label in inches.
- Height (In Inches) (8): Input the height of the label in inches.
- Left Offset (In Inches) (9): You can input a left offset of the label in inches.
- Top Offset (In Inches) (10): You can input a top offset of the label in inches.
- Orientation (11): Select from the drop-down list (C) the orientation of the label (Normal, rotated 90 degrees, Inverted 180 degrees, bottom-up 270 degrees, read from bottom up).
- Port (12): You can specify a port for the printing of the label.
- Definition (13): Use this option to format the label using the print language selected in (3), which is typically ZPL. If you do want to adjust the definition, you can use the lists in this article as a guide: Direct Printing Replacement Fields
- Cancel (14): Click the Cancel button to cancel creating/editing the label.
- Save (15): Click the Save button to save the label.
