Printer Configuration for Sheet and Thermal Labels

Go to File then Program Setup then Printers:

For sheet-label printing select Wide Format for laser-style printers or Narrow Format for dot matrix printers.

For 3" thermal receipts, note that font size can be changed for the header and text, and the store name can be printed or not:

The header includes store name, address and phone number. The text can be up to six lines, room permitting.

The store name and address can be printed on receipts by checking 'Include store name and address in receipt header'. (If the store name is too long, shorten it in Program Setup on the General tab.)


Select the Inventory Tab in Program Setup.

For sheet and thermal labels, choose desired options, keeping in mind that smaller labels do not have room for all options:


Print Adjustment - Address and Price Labels - Laser or Dot Matrix Printers

Access screens for printing address or price labels by selecting Labels on the Main Menu:

Select Consignors (or Buyers in BCSS Diamond and Virtual) to print Address Labels or select Inventory to print Price Labels.

Make settings on the page to define which labels should be printed. (Note that when applying ranges for time, item #s and prices that the boxes must be checked for the filters to apply.)

In the boxes on the lower-left of the screen, change settings for Left and Top. Increase the values for 'Left' to move print on the sheet to the right and/or increase values for 'Top' to move print down on the sheet.


 
Large changes are necessary to significantly change print position.

Some printers will require a negative number for correct printing.
(The value could be as much as -300 to -900.)

Record correct settings for future reference.
(Settings will be lost if Windows or BCSS are reinstalled.)
 

Change settings for Row Space to increase/decrease the distance between printed lines. With some printers the value of 1.49 is necessary when the last row of labels won't print as they should.

The default values are: Left: 350; Top: 300; Row Space: 13.

Most laser-style printers use margin settings (Left) 350 and (Top) 800-850.

When the correct settings have been determined, record the settings (off of the computer) for future reference.


Print Settings for Bar Codes on Sheet Labels

These are the default settings for margins, rows and columns when printing bar codes on sheet labels. Changes in these values may be necessary to properly align print on labels. Print on plain paper first. Hold the printed page and a blank sheet of labels squared up to the light to see where print would have been positioned on the labels.

This screen appears after selecting 'Bar Codes on Avery Stock' then selecting one of the options on the Bar-Code Options Screen:

 

Top Margin: .1

Bottom Margin: .5

Rows: 10

Row Space: 1.04

Left Margin: .3

Right Margin: .5

Columns: 3

Change columns to '2' when printing 2-across labels.

For partially-used sheets, feed the used end first and enter the number of the next-available label to the right of 'Start printing at this label #' (red arrow).

Check 'Bar Code Quantity = Inventory Quantity' if multiple labels are to be printed for the same item(s).

When the correct settings have been determined, record the settings (off of the computer) for future reference.
