Every product needs a label. Putting the most professional color labels possible on products will set them apart from others. This is especially important for smaller manufacturers who can actually increase their sales by making their products stand out through innovative packaging and labeling.
The LX-Series Colour Label Printers by manufacturer Primera Technology utilise the latest in thermal inkjet technology to produce full-colour product labels at up to 4800 dpi in up to 16.7 million colors. Colour inkjet is typically suited to short runs. However, print quality is not at all sacrificed. In fact, color inkjet printing is among the best available of any competing technology.
But hardware is nothing without software that allows users to design label layouts in an easy and comfortable way. While Primera's inkjet desktop label printers come with the Windows-based design software NiceLabel SE Primera Edition, Mac users had to create their designs out of other expensive software programs such as Corel Draw, Adobe Photoshop or Illustrator.
Now, the leading manufacturer of specialty printing equipment is offering to all its registered customers, using a Primera LX-Series label printer with a Mac OS X based computer, a free version of Labels & Addresses Primera Edition.
Labels & Addresses is developed by Ukrainian software company BeLight Software. Primera Europe is already offering a free version of BeLight's Mac-based Disc Cover Standard Edition software for Primera's Disc Publishers.
Labels & Addresses is a home and office tool for printing all sorts of labels. The program helps to design and print labels, such as address, shipping, file folder and barcode labels. Merge printing capability makes the program a great office tool for those who need to print multiple labels in one go, using data from a print list.
It's easy to print individual labels or batch print addresses from Apple Address Book, Numbers 09, MS Entourage, MS Excel, MS Outlook 2011, Now Contact, FileMaker, vCards or tab-delimited text files. Further to that, the software prints Intelligent Mail, USPS POSTNET, Canada Post and Royal Mail barcodes on labels to ensure fast and accurate delivery, and correctly formats addresses for more than 50 countries. In order to print price tags or product box labels it's essential that industry-standard barcodes such as Code 39, Code 128, EAN-8/13, UPC-A/E, ISBN and Data Matrix barcodes are supported.
Labels & Addresses Primera Edition is customised to run perfectly with Primera's label printers and therefore integrates all standard rectangular and some circle and oval Primera label stock sizes.
It also includes Primera label templates and 1,000 clipart images that add a personalized or corporate look to all label layouts. But it's also possible to import all kinds of file types such as EPS, PDF, JPG, GIF, TIF, PNG as well as PSD and AI files. Layers support and diverse editing tools help to create professional designs.
BeLight offers an Extras Pack that includes 100 additional fonts and 40,000+ high-quality images on top.
The software is perfect to produce product, address, box, file folder labels as well as price tags on all Primera LX-Series printers (LX200e, LX400e, LX900e) but also on Primera's PX450e POS Colour Printer and FX400e Foil Imprinter.
Labels & Addresses runs with Mac OS X 10.5.8 or later and is available in English, German, French and Spanish languages.
