Have you ever had a need for a label template? I know I have and it has saved me a lot of time and money. We all know how much time is saved when we can purchase a pre-printed roll of labels from the grocery store or stationery store. However, what happens when we run out of labels or if we decide we do not like the design on one particular label. Do we simply buy a new roll and start over, or is there a better way to handle this situation? There is and in fact, there are three good reasons why you should consider implementing a label template system into your business.First of all, you will save money. When you have an efficient labeling process, there will be less wasted paper from paper jams and the printer will not have to print duplicate copies of the same label over again. In addition, there are no mistakes made when using a label template because the data for each label is contained within the c-1 illustrates file. This means that if you have a pool configuration, you can use the c-1 illustrations for all of the pool’s tags.Second, you will save time. The reason why using label components is better than using paper labels is because it takes less time to develop the layout of the labels. For example, if you need to add a logo, you do not have to cut and paste the logo into place as there are pre-defined layout formats for text boxes and image boxes. Also, if you are using text boxes, you do not have to be concerned with remembering what you put where because the labels are color-coded. Finally, you will be able to print more labels at one time by setting up multiple pools.Third, using c-1 illustration files for labeling purposes saves money. A single c-1 illustration print takes only a few seconds while filling in a text box usually takes several minutes. Also, it costs less than printing plain black and white labels or using a variety of different paper and ink colors. In addition, it only takes a few seconds to upload a file in a software program to upload the c-1 illustration.Fourth, you can create a name text box that is different for each pool. You can create a default name text box that uses all lowercase letters, but you can personalize your own name text boxes by including your pool’s name and/or a photo. Also, you can have an A-Z label template that contains punctuation, special characters, numbers, and special symbols. For example, you can create an A-Z check number template.Fifth, you can change your template font size to fit your label template. Many software programs include templates for standard letter sizes. You can also customize your font size with the click of a button. Just make sure the font size you want is available when you open your template. Also, many software programs allow you to change the background color of your labels. Make sure you have an option to change your background color before opening your template.Finally, many software programs will let you use one of their preconfigured label templates. These are ready to use, ready to print, and have all the options available to you as they would in any word processing program. However, they may be limited to pre-defined character widths, sizes, and widths. If you need more flexibility, it may be necessary to create your own preconfigured label templates from scratch.Here are some quick tips to get you started. First, print out your blank template sheet on regular paper, large enough to print all of the text and graphics on. Then, print the preconfigured font, background color, and size label sheets from your computer. Or, purchase or download several template sheets and combine them to create the first label sheet. Finally, print the first label sheet out and bind it to the appropriate label sheet stock.
