Product Label Printing - How to select, customise and print labels
How to print labels.
Once product manager has loaded, click on ‘Product Label Printing’
Wait for the data to download to you’re computer.
You will then be taken to a screen where you can select labels to be printed, and customise the appearance of the printed labels.
The fist thing you need to do is either start typing the SKU of the product that you wish to print labels for, or select a manufacturer from the drop down list, which is what I have done below.
Note: you need to click on ‘Process Data’ in order to see the preview of the labels on the left hand side of the screen.
In this example, I have selected a manufacturer, we are now seeing all of the product labels for the selected manufacturer.
If you wanted to remove some items from this list, you can do so by clicking on the ‘Filter Products’ button at the top right and side of the screen.
You will now see a list of everything that is going to be printed.
This screen will allow you to untick any products that you do not wish to print labels for.
Make any selections that you wish here, then click on ‘Save Changes’.
The display on the left hand side of the screen will then update to reflect the products that you have selected or deselected in this instance.
If you wish to change the size and appearance of the labels, the you can do so by looking at the bottom section at the left hand side of the screen.
Firstly, you can define the amount of columns that appear on the print out, by changing the value of the ‘Print Columns’ field. (The default is 4).
Once you have made a change, you need to click on the ‘Process Data’ button to be able to preview the changes.
You can also change the font sizes of various element that appear on each label.
In this example, I’ve increased the size of the text for the title of the product.
Don’t forget to click on process data in order to preview you’re changes.
There are also additional options that will enable you to show or hide various other elements that appear on each label. ‘Include Image’ is disabled by default, but can be turned on if you have defined product image for the SKU’s in question.
You can also fine tune the page margin’s and spacing’s for each label, this should be done if you are experiencing alignment issues on your label print outs, the default settings are generally ok for A4 sized print outs.
Once you are ready to print out you’re labels, click on the ‘Print’ button in the top right hand corner.
You will then be taken to the standard printing dialogue which is native to the PC or you are using, just select the printer that you have loaded the label’s into and click on print.
