Bunch Different Labels Into One Print Job? フォローする

I'll start by saying I think I already have the answer to this but I need to know to satisfy a request I received.

 

I have a single btw file with 7 templates within it. The first four are all the same (I just copy/pasted for 2,3,4), so each single print request results in 7 distinct labels per record.

The problem we're having is that each label results in a notable pause to the thermal printer. This isn't surprising to anybody really and I don't believe it's anything Bartender can address, but is there any way to chunk these together in a more streamlined manner to minimize pausing between each label, so that a single print request can possibly crank through as if it were a 7-label print job and not just seven 1-label print jobs?

 

At the very least I assume there must be a way to have the first template within the label file print four times instead of having four templates that are the same--but I see no obvious way to make one of the btw's templates print four times per print request and the other templates within it print only once.

Thanks as always :)

The problem in using duplicate templates like this is that the label will be reimaged for each copy rather than specifying in print code to issue X number of copies of the proceeding label layout.  Performing batch printing (Batch Maker/BTXML/automation) would be the way around this, but then your templates would reside in different document files.

Hi Ian,

 

Putting them into separate files is okay. I have them like this because each print request, whether it's for one material or many, has to be a set of the seven labels.

 

if I use batch maker, would I still get the normal pause between each label, or would they all hit the printer at the same time as a "7-label print job", so that they would print faster?

 

Thanks!

You want it so that you're send the printer a full print job for all of your variable data labels as a single print job wherever possible.  Not separate print jobs for each and every label.
