I have a Zebra TLP2844 label printer.

 

I am looking for software which can interface with a MySQL database (preferred option) or import a CSV (alternative option).

 

The fields to print are:

 

- Product code (3 or 4 digit number - primary key in database)

 

- Brief text product description

 

- EAN13 barcode

 

Quite a few programs can do this.

 

What I am having difficulty finding is a program where I can choose which labels to print by product code, specify the number required (usually low) and push print. Printing on demand in other words.

 

Has someone come across something?

 

As much as I like free software (as a Linux user) and would love it if I could find something, I am not holding my breath... Paid software solutions including Windows are welcome.

If you don't mind mortgaging your house, this is a common commercial solution.

Thanks for that. Bartender was one of the options I was offered. I can't recall the price but it was pretty horrendous.

 

I have downloaded LabelJoy (US$199) but am waiting for a response from them about whether it can work the way I want and Nicelabel is on the list to try (NZ$399 probably +GST)

 

Also - commercial offers via PM welcomed.
