Unique Pictures On Each Label S’abonner

Greetings! I am researching the bartender software as a possible solution for my company, and have a quick question. 

 

I have a folder with roughly 5000 images in it. I have customers that are going to provide me an excel file with a list of between 100 and 400 labels that they need printed pulling from the 5000. 

 

Each of the labels will be the same general format, but each label will have a unique image. The image will cover nearly the entire surface of the label. 

 

Is this possible with the Bartender software? 

 

Is the Bartender software capable of near photo quality printing of images? 

 

How long would a print job like this take to process / complete? 

 

thank you so much for your help!

Yes, BarTender can print unique images per label by pulling them from a folder.

 

The quality and time is probably more a factor of the printer used to print the labels and the computer used to process the printing.

Hi! To elaborate on the earlier post, yes BarTender can print unique labels at print time. In order to properly configure this, the file name of each image must match a field (cell) so at print time, the image name is matched to the image in the folder. 

 

First, create an image place holder on your label. Make sure that the image layer is moved to the back so your barcode and other data can print. If your barcode gets in the way of the image, you can create a shape object the size of your bar code and make sure that the shape is in front of the background image. The correct image will only show when connected to the data source. So initially, the label may show an enlarged icon that represents an image.

 

Next, right click on your label and select picture source and select External Picture. Then select "Get file name from database" by selecting the field name (cell)  that contains the image name. Right below that is an option to select the default path to the images.There are other options in the dialog box that will let you control the image position and layout to fit your output.

 

This process merges the label with the image without any noticeable loss in speed. 

 

I have used this method for a few years merging up to 10 different images onto one label sheet. I created a field called image and the correct file name is posted there when one of many sites post data for a parking sticker. It is basically seamless. In my case, I use a web MySQL database that allows for data collection from any authorized site. The merging process made the printing of labels quite easy and prevents waste.

 

I hope this helps direct you to a solution for your stated problem.
