Label printing for Apple Mac
with eXtra4-labelM1

Industry solution for Mac-OS operating system

The marking of jewellery labels via Apple systems can be done reliably with the label printing software for jewellers and goldsmiths: eXtra4-labelM1.
The application is designed to work on Mac computers, created on an Apple system, compatible with M processors and the latest versions of Apple's operating system.

Therefore, eXtra4-LabelM1 is oriented towards the user expectations of the to easy handling accustomed international Apple community. Accordingly, the software is available in English.


With precision to the industry-appropriate label

Software eXtra4-labelM1 does not generate the print out with image data, as is usual with standard label design software. The application drives thermal transfer printers directly and communicates print data via the respective control language of the device.

Thanks to coordinate-based commands, eXtra4-labelM1 achieves a more precise print result, can create finer fonts and place them in a more accurate position.
This makes it possible to print small labels with complex shapes, such as those required in the jewellery and watchmaking industry, exactly and with high precision.


Integrated ready-to-use label design

In eXtra4-labelM1, a label as a mask for data entry shows all entry fields in print position on the screen. The label design is already integrated in the software and is provided by eXtra4-labelM1 in a layout list.
Suitable for new label shapes from the eXtra4 stock range, the selection of ready-made designs is constantly revised and permanently supplemented.

Software features for label printing 

Intuitive operating concept

The core function of the eXtra4-labelM1 software is label printing. Here, the application is characterised by intuitive ease of use. The following features support the user during interaction:


The fast way to the printed label

The label printing software eXtra4-labelM1has what standard label designer software does not have: Ready-to-use label designs.
The label design is called label layout in eXtra4-labelM1 and works as an entry mask. There the user types in the data to be printed on the label. A layout contains all elements to be printed per marking area, i.e. entry fields for individual texts and placeholders for barcodes or logos. The number of lines, font type and font size are predefined to ensure that the maximum amount of data can be optimally placed on the label and is easy to read in print.

Users of the label printing software eXtra4-labelM1 only need 4 steps to printed labels: Select the layout, enter the data, determine the print run, start printing.

Picking the label layout

Choose a label design instead of making it yourself
Reliability and highest precision are guaranteed when printing labels with eXtra4-labelM1, with no need for the user to lay hands on that oneself. Software users rely on our expertise as a label manufacturer and simply select the suitable label design from a range of ready-to-use label designs.
The correct selection of layouts that fit the desired label and can be processed by the printer model stored in the software is supported by eXtra4-labelM1 via the "printer traffic light": Red signals "not usable", green shows "suitable for the printer".

Predefined label texts

Fill entry fields without typing
The label printing software eXtra4-labelM1 offers the possibility to pre-fill label layouts with texts to those who want to print labels with similar text repeatedly without having to enter the data again.
As soon as the label layout is called up for data entry, the entry mask appears with already filled in input fields. The preset standard text only needs to be corrected in details, e.g. individual values for weight and size. This reduces the time and effort required for data acquisition.
Preassigned text fields also help to comply with certain labelling standards. There, it is determined which information is to be mandatory on the label and where it is to appear. Entry fields for text presettings can be found in the label printing program eXtra4-labelM1 under the tab "Label Options".

Barcode Printing

Streamline with barcode labels

A barcode is the machine-readable form of an item number. If you want to streamline processes with barcodes, you should already use item numbers to organize goods. Scanning the barcode on the label can then replace manually typing in the item number each time the item is accessed. This saves time and prevents incorrect entries.
Generate bar codes - automatically
The label printing program eXtra4-labelM1 is able to generate a barcode from an item number and print it on a label. The item number can be typed in manually, read in by scanner or taken from the article data record of a database.  
The barcode type into which an item number is converted depends on the type of item number (numeric, alphanumeric, number of digits) and the layout used for label printing.

To ensure the reliable function of the coded label, we are happy to advise on the selection of the code.

Logo Printing

Print yourself labels with your own logo
Users can use the label printing software eXtra4-labelM1 to apply their own company logo to their labels. The program transfers the signet into the entry mask and outputs it together with the individual data on the label - printed in the same colour and resolution as the other label content.
Printing logos as bitmap graphics
To enable the label printing software eXtra4-labelM1 to output a logo, the graphic must be available as a bitmap. Experienced users can implement their logo themselves. For all other users we take over this task for a small fee.
The logo as a bitmap graphic is loaded via the label printing software eXtra4-labelM1 into the corresponding label layout and stored in the main memory of the connected label printer. The logo is then ready for printing each time the label is called up.
Multi-colour logo printing in high quality is not possible with a common thermal transfer label printer.
