LabelStation Disc

Fri, Mar 27, 2015

Our LabelStation label printers are already fantastic and full of features! We understand that they could be a little daunting to someone using it for the first time so that’s why we, the technical support team, have developed (with the help of our technical sales) an easy-to-use installation disc to help get you up and running in minutes!
The disc is packed full of step by step tutorials, user guides and videos to help get you printing everything from basic labels to programming with the optional keyboard.
The label design software, BarTender1, works on Microsoft Windows XP, Vista, 7, 8, 8.1 (and the soon to be released Windows 10). It’s very easy to use with its office-like user interface. With it you can design almost every type of label imaginable.
