Tag Layouts for Citizen & C-Itoh Barcode printers

-------------------------------------------------

 

(Note that the Citizen CLP and C-Itoh S4 printers are the same printer)

 

You should type in the sample co-ordinates given below. Test each

sample layout to see which one is closest to being acceptable. Then

you will probably have to fine-tune the layout by either removing

unwanted items or adding other items or by moving the position of

certain items.

 

The 'across' and 'up' measurements below are in terms of 'pixels' for the

printer which are normally a quarter of a millimeter each. So.. if

you need to move the sku number 2mm to the right then that equals 8 pixels.

E.g.if the sku number is currently set to 128 across then you'd adjust that

to 136 across.

 

The Jewelry Shopkeeper allows you to fine-tune your thermal printer

price tag layouts. From the Main Menu, choose 2,5 (make sure option D is

set to THERMAL unless you have Jewelry Shopkeeper Lite)

Choose B (make sure you select D for the printer type as

the C-Itoh uses Datamax codes),Page-Down, Page-Down. Here are two sample

layouts for a C-Itoh S4. Some printers might need some adjustment to the

coordinates and the "offset". Note that Citizen/Datamax/C-Itoh/Ovation

measure ACROSS and UP from the bottom left corner of the tag (unlike the

Zebra which measures ACROSS and DOWN from the top left corner.) Layout 8

is for a ring/dumbell tag.

 

To do a print test choose option J "Print Tags for Miscellaneous Items"

from the Tag Printing screen. There you can select a Sku number and you

should select a quantity of about 3 or 4 for a test (one alone isn't

good for a test)

 

 

Layout 9 is for a 1-across string-tag.
