Design & Print

NiceLabel Design and Print software helps users quickly design labels and create an efficient printing process so they can focus on running their business instead of worrying about print errors every day. Quickly design professional labels without making investments in training and coding.

Design

The NiceLabel Designer delivers a familiar Microsoft Word-like user experience. This means anyone can quickly design professional labels without barcoding, design or advanced computer skills. Use one of the predesigned label templates or create one from scratch in minutes without previous label design experience.




Design like a pro, even if you’re a novice

Guidelines, positioning, anchoring, alignment, grouping and other features help users quickly design professional labels.

Pre-built compliance labels
NiceLabel comes with a library of pre-built labels that align with industry standards like GS1, AIAG, ODETTE, GM, VDA, etc.

All the help you need
NiceLabel provides shortcuts, on-screen hints, error warnings, and explanations to ensure users get all the help they need to quickly create accurate labels.

Rich and responsive text objects
NiceLabel automatically wraps text or adjusts font size to ensure dynamic data fits into the designated area.

All the languages you need
Every part of NiceLabel supports foreign languages including its user interface, help system and user guides. Label content can be printed in any language with multiple languages appearing on the same label.

Powerful, unique features
Intelligent features like relative object positioning, variable label length and double-sided printing help reduce the number of template variations that need to be created.

Database connectivity
Anyone can connect to an Excel spreadsheet or an Access database using the NiceLabel wizard. Advanced users can connect labels with server databases.

Data validation, formatting and processing
Many times, data needs to be printed in a particular format; sometimes joined into a single text or barcode object (i.e. for serialization). This also may be required to comply with industry or customer requirements. NiceLabel helps users meet these needs by providing functions configured via wizards instead of requiring coding.

Print

Printing the right label template with the right data is business-critical for a company of any size. NiceLabel ensures print operators experience a simple interface providing them with everything they need and no distractions. The result is a quick and accurate printing process.



Print with fewer errors

Labels are not designed every day but they are printed every day. It is critical to ensure the printing process is streamlined and accurate. The print operators must be able to quickly select the correct data, adjust printer settings and preview the label print job. Operators should not be able to change the label template. Label printing requires a special interface that ensures data accuracy, prevents accidental label template changes and minimizes the learning curve for production and warehouse print operators.

NiceLabel Print for print productivity

NiceLabel Print is the module created for the print operator. It allows the users to select the right label template, but prevents them from modifying it. The “all-in-one” printing form includes all data entry fields, database navigation and selection, printer settings and a print preview of the entire print job so the operators print efficiently and without errors.

Design & Controlled Print

Design & Controlled Print

NiceLabel’s all-inclusive suite of Design and Controlled Print software helps you quickly design dynamic label templates and optimize the efficiency and accuracy of the printing process. Eliminate printing errors by adapting the printing interface to the user and process or by integrating labeling with your existing applications and master data.



Design labels and applications

The products in the Design & Controlled Print category deliver the same powerful and easy to use label  design experience as Designer Pro. In addition to the label design capabilities, the PowerForms license  enables VARs to design tailor-made printing applications for their customers.Customization without coding

This powerful functionality removes the need for programmers to develop their own custom printing front-end or integration applications, which are difficult and costly to maintain. Business users can rapidly create a printing solution that streamlines label printing, prevents errors and mislabeling, reduces labor costs and improves overall print productivity.


Simplify the print process for unskilled workers

Make it easy for unskilled or seasonal workers to print labels. Build a printing solution that uses images and icons to replace text or use buttons and a touchscreen to remove the need for keyboard skills. New print operators can be rapidly onboarded with minimal to no training.


Streamline complex printing processes

Custom forms allow end users to make the necessary decisions to print exactly what they want, when they want it, without deviating from a standard process or workflow. This reduces manual printing effort, improves the speed of printing and print productivity.

Printing automation

Businesses can significantly reduce printing effort and achieve new levels of accuracy and productivity  by using the Automation module’s unmatched integration capabilities. Automation’s features empower  business users to integrate and automate printing from existing business systems without any coding.  Automation also integrates printing with hardware devices such as PLCs or weight scales.



Integration without coding

NiceLabel Automation accepts and transforms data in any format so existing business systems or applications don’t have to be customized.


Works with all printers

NiceLabel Automation uses universal and dynamic label templates that work across thousands of printer models, which substantially reduces number of label variations and simplifies label management.

Data mapping

The built-in data mapping wizard helps you easily extract and map data from common formats like CSV or fixed-width text files. The mapping tool also supports legacy system modernization by supporting data in unstructured formats such as legacy reports or printer commands. Even binary data can be  extracted and mapped!


Unmatched performance and reliability

Automation includes NiceLabel’s next-generation “64-bit print engine” that takes advantage of new technologies to maximize print productivity while using minimum computer resources.
