The Fastest, Easiest Way to Design Professional Quality Labels
Easy to Learn, Easy to Use
With BarTender, a few quick mouse motions are all it takes to combine bar codes, text and graphics into sharp looking, professional quality labels. And moving and resizing objects on your labels is as easy as 1, 2, 3.
And customizing is easy. Carefully organized menus and "pop-up" dialogs display even the most advanced options in plain, easy-to-understand words. And, with the industry's most powerful Undo command, even beginners never have to worry about mistakes. And advanced users still have all the power they'll ever need.
Exceptional Design Flexibility
BarTender gives you total control over your label's appearance. Specify any size and quantity of bar codes and any size and style of text on any size label (or page). Choose from nearly twenty bar code languages, including all of the major symbologies, as well as two-dimensional and postal bar codes. It takes an entire separate page to cover all our options for reading in data from external sources.
In addition to the 16-bit version, usable on all major versions of Windows, BarTender is also available in a 32-bit version. Especially designed to take advantage of the increased power and flexibility of Windows 95, 98, ME, NT and 2000, it makes label design easier than ever.
True WYSIWYG Display
BarTender doesn't just "preview" or approximate how your labels will look. Bar codes and different text sizes are shown with extraordinary precision. By accurately viewing your label images before you print them out, you finish your design work faster
Designer Typefaces, Even on Thermal Printers
Thermal printer users are no longer limited to just a few built-in, generic typefaces. Seagull's printer drivers let you output the same rich variety of Windows-based TrueType and Adobe fonts previously available only on laser printers. All fonts scale smoothly to any size, without the "blockiness" seen with some enlarged thermal printer fonts.
Import and Export Most Graphic Formats
It's easy to add company logos and pictures of products. BarTender supports all major graphic formats, including BMP, DCX, DIB, DXF, EPS, IMG, JPG, PCX, PNG, TGA, TIF, WMF, WPG. You can also export bar codes for use in other software packages.
Numerous Ready-to-Print Formats
Don't like designing from scratch? Maybe one of our numerous pre-designed label formats is all you need. Covering a wide variety of the most common industrial, military, and business applications, they can be used "as is" or modified to fit your exact needs.
Remarkable Printer Support
In addition to the hundreds of laser, ink-jet and dot-matrix printers already supported by Windows, we've created our own true Windows drivers for numerous industrial quality label printers. And our drivers can be used by all your Windows programs.
Unsurpassed Data Input Capabilities
BarTender can accept label data from a truly remarkable variety of sources:
Keyboard data entered in advance or at print time.
Automatically serialized data strings.
Automatic time and date values.
Four different text file formats.
ODBC data sources, including most databases and spreadsheets. (Advanced data reporting capabilities include SQL Select statements and Query by Example.)
Direct input from SAP IDocs (Intermediate Documents)
Working with Other Software
