Y Flip (for USA)
Label Wizard was written in the UK, where it is usual to have the destination address appear above the senders address. In the USA however, the senders address usually apears above the destination. Use this tick box to set your preference, when it's ticked is set for USA.

Print Borders
This tick box enables/disables the printing of label borders. If you are trying to setup Label Wizard to a new type of label size then it helps alot if you enable the border printing. Printing the border will allow you to visually check just where the borders are lying on your printed labels, thus you'll know which way to tweak the setup, for more info on setting up, see the setting up tips below.

Font Selection

Graphical Logo Bitmap Setup
To enable/disable the logo simply tick/untick the box. In order to change the logo just press the button [...] in the setup screen and then choose a .bmp file of your choice. You can use your windows paint package in order to draw a new .bmp file.

Print logo graphic over the whole label
This does exactly as it says and enable you to create labels out of a single .BMP graphic file. So if you wanted to create full color labels for your jars of honey then you just need to design a label in your favourite paint package (make it full screen or bigger for good resolution) and then save the label as a .BMP file to some folder on your computer. Now load that .BMP into Label Wizard as a logo graphic and tick the "Print logo graphic over the whole label" box. Now your entire label sheet will be populated with your new product labels. The beauty of this system is that if you want to change the size of your product labels then you don't need to redraw them, you just need to change the label size in the setup screen.

Label sheet size setup controls
To adjust a control simply left click and hold the small button [»], this will allow you to slide an adjuster up or down for the control. These controls allow you to adjust the size in mm of your label sheet. Notice the three small buttons on the left labeled "a4", "let" and "leg", these give you quick size presets for A4, US Letter ans US Legal paper sizes. You can of course enter any sizes you wish using the numeric inputs.

Label Configuration Controls
To adjust a control simply left click and hold the small button [»], this will allow you to slide an adjuster up or down for the control. These controls allow you to adjust various setup parameters allowing you to configure LabelWizard to work with just about any label size that's available on an A4 sheet. The row number indicates how many labels you get along the length of a sheet. The column number indicates how many labels you get along the width of a sheet. For more info on setting up, see the setting up tips below.

Character Map

Pressing this button will bring up a character map window as shown on the right.

This allows you to select special characters for inclusion in your various text boxes.

Here are some examples of special characters included:
« © ® ° »
Character map window


Save and Load setup buttons
These buttons allow you to save the current setup or load a previously saved setup. Data is saved to a .LWP file of the users choice.

For example say you wanted a special setup file for printing christmas card address labels. You would follow these steps:

  1. Setup Label Wizard for the christmas card label, use a christmas tree graphic BMP, maybe a fancy colored font etc.
  2. When you're happy with the setup, press the "Save this setup" button and save it as "Xmas.lwp" or something similar.
  3. Now whenever you need to print xmas labels, just press the "Load a setup" button and select "Xmas.lwp".

TOP TIP : You can also doubleclick a .LWP file from anywhere in windows and Label Wizard will start up and configure to it. This means you can quickly and easily build up a library of .LWP files for different tasks and save them all to your desktop etc. for quick access to all your different label tasks.

Check For Newer Application Version
This does exactly what it says, it checks online to make sure you have the latest and greatest version.
If you don't have the latest version then a button appears allowing you to download the latest version straight off our website.

OK & Cancel buttons
Pressing cancel will cause any adjustments that you make to be lost, Lable Wizard will go back to using the settings it was using before you entered the setup screen.

Pressing OK will cause all the adjusted controls to take immediate effect upon Label Wizards setup, your adjustments will become visible in the main screen of Label Wizard.

 

Setting Up Tips

If you have an old backing, (the waxy sheet that the labels come on) then you can print onto it and then wipe it off later with a damp cloth, you can use this to keep feeding through your printer whilst you adjust the various settings. This will save you from wasting sheets whilst setting up.

To adjust a control simply left click and hold the small button [»], this will allow you to slide an adjuster up or down for the control.

Setup steps:

  1. Set the size of the whole label sheet by using the "Width (mm)" and "Height (mm)" controls, if your label sheets are a known standard size then press one of the preset buttons like "A4" instead.

  2. Set the correct number of rows and columns for your Label Sheet:
    The row number "Label Rows" indicates how many labels you get down the length of the page, from top to bottom.
    The column number "Label Cols" indicates how many labels you get across the width of a sheet, from left to right.

  3. Now set the gaps between the labels in mm:
    "Col Spacing (mm)" refers to the horizontal width of the gaps between the label columns on the sheet.
    "Row Spacing (mm)" refers to the vertical height of the gaps between the label rows on the sheet.

  4. Now set the 4 different margin sizes. Although your label sheets may appear to have top and bottom margins of the same size, you may have to set the bottom margin to be considerably less than it actually is. This is to compensate for the unprintable region usually found at the bottom of the sheet with most inkjet printers.

  5. Now Print out a whole sheet of labels with the borders enabled onto a label sheet. Depending on the printed output you may need to make some adjustments:

    If the labels are lined up at the top, but gradually get more misaligned as they go down the sheet then you need to reduce or increase the bottom margin size.

    Basically you need to adjust the margin sizes until you manage to 'stretch' the labels so that they print perfectly onto the label sheet.

    Once you've performed the setup procedure once you don't need to bother again, Label Wizard remembers all of its settings between uses.

FAQ (Frequently Asked Questions)

Can I See What Labels I've printed in the past?
Q I send out many different packages everyday, not every package is recorded, is their any way that I can find out if I've created a label for a certain address, this would let me know if I hadn't packed/posted an item?
A

YES, you can do this with LabelWizard, simply press the Browse Printed button.


Can I print product labels with Label Wizard ?
Q Hi, I run a small online shop and I sell various natural honey products, i would like to be able to make professional labels for my honey jars, will Label Wizard enable me to do this?
A

Yes, you need to "Print logo graphic over the whole label".


Font Size?
Q In the setup screen how do you make the font size bigger? When I change the texts size to 14 in sender 1 form it aways prints out at 10 how do you make it print out at 14?
A

You can't actually change the font size. I should really remove the size selector out of the font selector, it's just there, the program doesn't look at it!

Label Wizard automatically uses the biggest text size that it can get away with, so if you've got an address with a lot of text on one line, the text size will have to be smaller in order to prevent over the edge printing. This automatic behaviour ensures that every label is as human friendly and readable as possible.

One method that I've found useful to make text smaller is to add spaces or enters, this fools Label Wizard into thinking that the line is longer than it actually is and it will reduce the text size. I used this technique on my Sender1 text, I enter this string "Sender»          " and Label Wizard accomodates the spaces as well as the text and thus reduces the font size of the Sender1 text.


Operating System Compatability?
Q Is this trial download program compatible with Win ME? Reason I ask is because I have downloaded it twice now and each time I go to set up or print or whatever... the screen locks up the program semi crashes and I have to hit 'end task ' . I would dearly love to buy this but if this is going to happen on the unlocked version I am very reluctant. Can you offer any advice please?
A

Label Wizard Pro. is ONLY compatible with Windows NT, Windows 2000 and Windows XP.

We haven't tested Label Wizard on Windows 95, 98 or ME.

If the trial version won't work then the registered version won't work either. Windows ME is Win 98 with extra bits, so it probably won't work on that either.

Sorry about this, but that is why we made it try before you buy.

I can only suggest holding a copy of it or visiting our website and installing it if you ever upgrade your operating sysytem to WinXP or Win2000.


Can I sell Label Wizard and Make Money?
Q I bought Label Wizard myself and am very impressed with its user friendliness and robustness. Is there any possibility of selling this software myself or not?
