The ProphetLine POS/Retail Management Software Company has made available as a free software download, an application that manually prints barcode pricing labels. This is not a high volume application that is connected to your current POS software, but a manual program ideal for individual labels, shelf tag labels and retailers using POS software or a cash register that does not print barcode pricing labels. This is the same printer matrix that is embedded into ProphetLine POS Software which runs totally automated. This label program is made to run with the Zebra TLP2824 and LP2824 series transfer and thermal printers. The Zebra printer can be serial, parallel, USB or networked. You can run multiple size labels; large 2¼ X 1¼ I-up, 1¼ X 1 2-up, 1 X ¾ 2-up and Jewelry tag labels. The 2-up labels and the jewelry tag labels have a limitation on the number and type of characters you can use in the UPC code field. The older style gap labels or the newer black line labels work equally well.
All of the necessary information you need for your customers can be printed on the larger 1-up pricing or shelf tag label; the catalogue number, bar code, description, department/class, selling price, MSRP, vendor account number, cost encrypted, date received encrypted, the store name and the quantity of labels desired.
