Manufacturers all around the world all complain about slow label printing speeds on the shop floor. Thanks to the help of our partner, TEKLYNX, we can help you simplify your label printing process. Follow these 3 best practices to have more efficient and more productive label printing.

    1. Optimize software to printer communication. All printers have built-in fonts, letters, and numbers that are installed on the printer itself. If you want your printer to print exactly what is on your screen, then you should make sure that your printer and computer are speaking the same language. To do that you can either use the Windows printer drivers, which don’t always provide the same quality or speed, or use the better option of embedded drivers provided by your barcode labeling software company, like TEKLYNX.
    2. Set up forms for print users. Once the communication between software and printer is optimized, you need to set up forms for print users. The key to this is to create a form where the printer can quickly enter data field by field. This makes the printing process easy for users too, because you do not have to worry about making any unintended errors.
    3. Print from the internet. Using a browser-based printing interface will help the printing process be more efficient, can be accessed from anywhere in the world, and take less time than launching a standalone application. Users find the correct label by typing a part number, order number, or other unique identifier, and the labeling system accurately generates the label based on database connections. Even suppliers can be provided access to print accurate labels onto your shipments.

Overall, printing can hinder many businesses from reaching their peak potentials. By optimizing software to printer communication, setting up forms for the printer to use, and using the Internet, businesses can print with no stress.
