barcode printing + 2 columns of labels

barcode printing + 2 columns of labels

barcode printing + 2 columns of labels

Currently working with a datamax printer and Jewelery style labels or barbell shaped labels. Labels are similar to this:

Have used bartender, labelview etc, but none of these programs seem to have a option to preview the two columns..Has anyone come across a program that offers the option of working with multiple columns.?

In regards to VB6.... what is the best way to go about printing multiple bar-codes, utilizing both columns (so one column isn't wasted).

any and all help is appreciated

RE: barcode printing + 2 columns of labels

Maybe I'm ignorant but for the life of me I can't get my thought process around your question.  What do you mean by "2 columns"  ??  Are you refering to printing labels 2-up?  If so, I print labels 6-up using bartender with no problems.  Multiple bar codes are no problem either, i.e. on a 6-up configuration, each label printed can have a completely different bar code.  Can you make your question clearer??

RE: barcode printing + 2 columns of labels

I'm with James259 on this - why would you make two columns? We use 10 different label types here, including barbells. The format is just the same as any other, we just have description and pricing on the left 'bell', and barcode info on the right. The program still sees it as one label.

Sounds like you would just want the barcode on both sides? Repeating the same information?
