Epson C3400 and Bartender Make the Perfect Match for Color Label Printing

Posted October 18, 2012

Most label printing is with just a single color and most of the time  just black. While this is a very cost efficient and easy means to create labels, some applications really need full color options.

One option is to go with pre-printed labels that have the color elements completed already so you then could just print in a single color.  This is not the easiest option to manage and all the color printed areas are static with each label.

Luckily there is the Epson C3400 printer and Seagull Scientific Bartender software.  This combo allows you to create fully customizable full color labels on-demand.  Print color labels quickly and easily, without sacrificing the power and flexibility you expect from a high-end solution. Print labels with full color photos, logos, almost any font and just about any barcode.

Posted June 23, 2011

Teklynx LABELVIEW 9 includes a number of improvements over previous versions.

  • Updated Printing Interface

As you select database records or enter When Printed text, the preview will update to display the data that will print on the label. The print interface has also been updated to provide quick access to the When Printed inputs that are needed every time you print, but retain the ability to change printer settings and quantity in the same window.

  • Additional Activation Options
    Protection method updates have provided additional activation options. You can now activate LABELVIEW from a separate workstation using a USB drive, along with online activation, online by proxy, phone, and e-mail activation. The activation wizard automatically selects online activation if you are connected to the Internet.

  • Layers Feature
    The Layers feature has replaced run separators, offering more flexibility and an easy-to-use interface. Layers give you the option to add a unique header and footer to each batch of labels.

  • New Wizards
    Wizards are available to assist with creating new labels and adding barcodes, images, text, and variables.

  • Form Designer
    The Form Designer allows you to create a custom printing interface, which simplifies printing for print users and reduces user error by eliminating the need to search for labels. The Form Designer replaces Label Select by offering a graphical approach to selecting the label and label data.

  • Data Sources Categories
    Data sources can now be organized in sub-categories at a display level (Data Sources view).

Major Upgrade of Seagull BarTender Web Print Server Released

Posted January 7, 2011

Click to Zoom

In addition to Internet Explorer, BarTender Web Print Server now supports Firefox, Chrome, Opera, and Safari (shown).

Seagull Scientific released version 9.3 of BarTender Web Print Server ("WPS") in November, 2010. This web application, originally introduced with the release of BarTender version 8.0 back in 2007, allows users to select and print BarTender label formats from within web browsers instead of BarTender. (Although BarTender Web Print Server is free, it requires use of the Enterprise Automation edition of BarTender.)

Some of the many enhancements in the new version of Web Print Server:

  • ActiveX No Longer Required for Internet Printing
    When using a printer connected by LAN or WAN to the Web Print Server server, Web Print Server has always supported print requests from a variety of browsers running on different hardware platforms and operating systems. We refer to this as "Standard Windows Printing."

    Until now, however, printing over the internet (instead of a LAN or WAN) required that the client be a Windows PC running Internet Explorer and ActiveX. It also required that Windows printer drivers be installed on the client PC.

    The new version of Web Print Server now supports Internet Printing using many more operating systems, browsers, and driver options for clients, including:

  • Printer Drivers Now Optional!
    Using the new Direct-to-port Internet Printing option, you no longer need to have a printer driver installed on the client. Instead, the print code can be routed directly through the browser to the printer port.

  • New Java Client-side Print Module
    Our long-established ActiveX Client-side Print Module is still provided and supported. However, a Java Client-side Print Module is now offered as well, providing support for a wider variety of browsers and operating systems.

  • Support for Firefox, Chrome, Opera, Safari Browsers
    The new Java Client-side Print Module enables support for additional browsers besides just Internet Explorer. This includes Firefox, Chrome, Opera, and Safari.

  • Support for Linux and Mac OS X Clients
    Internet Printing is now supported using Linux and Apple Macintosh OS X clients in addition to Windows clients.

  • Supports New Data Entry Controls
    BarTender v9.3 added support for several new types of controls for use on data entry forms, including checkboxes, radio buttons, and additional list controls. Version 9.3 of Web Print Server now supports these additional controls as well.

WPS v9.3 updated with new forms capabilities.
