LABAR32 Bar-code Label and Badge Software
- System Requirements
- Label Design
The Labar32 Program provides a simple means of printing bar-code labels or badges on a standard system printer. Template files can be created and maintained for various label designs and used for future reference. The program can be used to create employee badges using a laser printer and special stock. A Badge Kit is available which includes laser printer stock and laminating pouches.

LABAR32 uses three layout functions to define a label: Label Design, Bar-code Field, and Text Field. Label Design defines an individual label's dimensions as well as the arrangement of labels on a page. Each label contains a bar-code field and a text-field which can be customized to a user's particular needs. Label designs can be saved as a label definition file. (see below for details)
The basic functions which LABAR32 can control over label design are as follows:
- Label Width and Height:
- Defines the width and height of the individual label size.
- Labels Across and Down:
- Defines the number of labels across and number of labels down a single printed page.
- Left and Top Margins:
- Defines the upper left corner of the 1st label on a printed page.
- Vertical and Horizontal Separation:
- Defines the distance between vertical rows of labels and horizontal columns of labels on the printed page.
The text field defines the size and source of the text string that will be printed on each label. Options for the text field include: no text, fixed text, text entered from keyboard at the time of printing, text copied from the bar-code field, or imported from a .txt file. The text field also allows different fonts and font sizes.
This function defines the size, location, and type of bar-code field that will be printed on each individual label. The data properties define the source of the bar-code field data. Options for data properties include: no data, fixed data, data entered at time of printing, and data imported from a .txt file. The layout properties define the physical dimensions of the bar-code will be printed, as well as the bar-code symbology to be used (i.e. Code 39, UPC-A, etc.). Bar-code values can be sequentially incremented or decremented for each label with the option of printing the text-equivalent below the bar-code.
Label Definition File
A Label Definition File stores all the parameters needed to define a given label design. Once a label has been defined using the Label Design, Bar-code Field, and Text Field functions the design can be saved for future use.
