Important: LabelStation Helper – September 2017 Update

It’s been 3 years since I built the first version of the LabelStation Helper. It has been evolved quite a lot over that time to finally become the powerful archive of help and information that it is today.

If you already have a previous version installed, open it to trigger the auto-update. You might need to close it and open it again or click the “check of update” button (you might need to click this button twice, but this has been fixed in the latest update). If you have a very early version that doesn’t include the auto-updater, it’s recommended to delete the folder that it installed to (usually “C:\LabelStation” unless you selected otherwise, or click uninstall from the programs menu if you’re using the 2015 version), then run the downloader below.

We feel the Labelstation Helper has got to a point where it can no longer be improved upon; therefore we have decided to release an update to remove the online updating feature. We recommend updating to the latest version to ensure your software doesn’t try to update in the future as the online files are scheduled for removal in the next year. If you have any questions regarding this update, please call us.

Using BarTender With Brother QL & Dymo LabelWriter Printers

Please note: the following tutorial will not work with BarTender Ultralite (which is an edition supplied with some printers). The minimum edition required is BarTender Basic.


BarTender is well known for working with our LabelStation printers, Zebra, TEC and TSC printers. One question that has come to my attention, is whether or not it would work with lower budget printers such as Brother and Dymo. Obviously this needed to be investigated.

I’m using BarTender Enterprise Automation, which is the highest edition available, but this tutorial will work with all editions except for Ultralite.

Does it actually work?

Dymo Rhino 4200 Review

PRINTER Review

The Dymo Rhino 4200 has been around for a long time. I thought it would be worth doing this little review as it’s a great value printer for what it does. As I type this, the printer is on offer as £34.49 +VAT with free standard delivery which puts it in great competition with the Brother PT-E series. This printer features a great selection of tape materials and label types for any electrician or communications installer.

New A4 labels for Inkjet and Laser Printers

Introducing our newest addition to our A4 label range.

Sometimes, it can be more cost effective to print through your laser/inkjet printer instead of a label printer. For example: if you’re printing very small batches of labels or not printing labels very frequently, A4 labels might be the better option.

Our selection of A4 labels come in a popular variety of materials and colours.

Materials, colours and adhesives

The table below shows a selection of colours and materials of the labels we do. The table also shows which type of printer the A4 sheets should work with.*Continue Reading…
