Data – ensure accuracy and minimize errors

Designing and printing labels is a critical business function. Data accuracy is essential and best practice is to minimize or eliminate manual data entry and avoid changes to label templates at the point of printing. NiceLabel recommends that you separate the label template design and label data.

Use an Excel spreadsheet or a database to host your data instead of designing a different label template for each product. NiceLabel is the only vendor that provides spreadsheet and database connectivity across its entire product line.
