Create Custom labels

To create a custom label, follow these steps:

1. Open the DYMO Label program

2. Choose the ‘Labels’ tab on the top left

3. Choose your preferred label size and layout. (It may be easiest to choose the empty layout)

4. Select the ‘Insert’ tab

5. Add all the desired label objects to the label (Text, barcode, etc)

6. In order for OrderTrac to know where to put data on the label, each object needs to be named. On each object, right click and select ‘Properties’. On the ‘Advanced’ tab, the ‘Reference Name’ field MUST be set to one of the following:

    For Regular Items:
  • ITEMID_BARCODE (choose ‘Code 128 Auto’ on ‘General’ tab in the ‘Symbology’ dropdown; Choose Barcode size small if label is small;)
  • SKU_BARCODE (choose ‘Code 128 Auto’ on ‘General’ tab in the ‘Symbology’ dropdown; Choose Barcode size small if label is small;)
  • CUSTOMER (will read ‘Inventory’ if it is a stock item)
  • PRICE
  • ORIGPRICE
  • ORIGPRICELABEL (will show with default text on label if orig price has value, otherwise will be hidden. Can use to say “MSRP”, etc)
  • COUNT (ex: 1 of 6)
  • VENDOR (Vendor code)
  • LOCATION (Store location of item)
  • SKU
  • DESCRIPTION
    For UPC Items:
  • PRICE (will show sale price if on sale)
  • LOCATION
  • DESCRIPTION
  • MFR (manufacture)
  • ORIGPRICE (will show original price if on sale)
  • BARCODE (created from UPC)
7. Once you are done designing the label, select ‘File’ > ‘Save as Layout’, and save to C:\Users\<your username>\Documents\ordertrac\labels\custom
8. You are finished! This label will now show in the label template dropdown
