Printing Barcode Labels for HP LTO 2 Tapes - Quick 10 points!!

Hi All,

Could anyone help me out in printing barcode labels for HP LTO 2 Tapes,i.e could you please point me to a freeware (a trusted source, ofcourse)that allows me to print LTO 2 barcode labels.

I plan to use Windows XP client to print them.

Correct responses would be rewarded with points :)

Saket,

What about pre-printed labels?

Thanks Greg,

that is the last option and also I would like a reseller in Australia, so if I end up ordering them, I could get it quickly. Also, I was wondering if I could customise the labels a little. A pre-printed one might be a bit of a problem there.

Hi man.
I have one software that can generate a barcode and you can print any one as you want.
But it'size is over 1MB so that I can not attach it.
If you want, please give me your email, I will send to you.
PS: You only can run in 30 days try! It is not free!

Best and regard,

I use a tool which costs about 100 bucks but it 's worth it.

Look at http://www.cursor-ri.com

when compared to preprinted labels you are much cheaper off.

I am in australia and use http://www.netclabels.com.au/index.html.
They are quick and cheap and you can customise the labels with your own colours and text.

We had a similar problem a while ago trying to do pretty much the same thing you were.

I tried that Free barcode font, but had a fair few problems with it, sometimes it worked, sometimes it didnt, and it would work on a normal printer, but not on our thermal printers. After a while I got fedup and gave up, but then had todo the same task again, so rather than messing around, i just decided to buy some, and went through a company I had been recommended, the barcode labels they did just worked, and saved loads of messing!

I think someone needs to come up with some decent software to work with barcodes, apart from graphical software!!!
