Creating labels can be a daunting task, especially if this is your first label set up! The good news is, whether this is your first label design or you’ve been using labels for a while, everything you need to know and more can be found here.
“How to create a label” written by specialists in labelling. This blog explores 10 easy steps to identify what your label needs are and questions to ask your label maker.
Common questions are “How do I design my own label?” or “How do I generate barcodes?”
Depending whether your label has colour requirements, such as a pre-printed logo, you can either create your own label entirely by yourself using BarTender labelling software or get a pre-printed label from your label maker and then overprint your variable data. BarTender is essentially like "Word" for label printing, where you can easily create your own barcodes and text input fields – download your free trial here.
There can be many hidden costs in label production - the best way to save is to understand label basics or partner with a label maker who shares information.
