Configure label printers

Interlink Circulation allows you to pre-configure output devices for a variety of reports. This means you can set the system up once, and not look at the configuration again until you change or replace one of your printers.

Interlink Circulation supports printing labels to any of the following:

  • Laser printer loaded with 2-up or 3-up Avery adhesive mailing labels.
  • Impact printer (dot matrix) loaded with 1-up, 2-up or 4-up 1” continuous feed mailing labels or other continuous feed paper (e.g. green bar paper).
  • Thermal printer loaded with 1” adhesive mailing labels.
  • CSV (comma separated values) file to be sent to the press for direct application of addresses.

Setting up your Label Printer:

If you are printing to a laser printer:

  1. In the Page Layout drop-down, select the style of label you wish to print on.
  2. Select the destination printer from the Printer Name drop-down.
  3. Check the box next to Preview before printing if you wish to see the labels before printing them.
  4. Un-check the box next to Advanced Driver.

If you are printing to an impact (dot matrix) or thermal printer:

  1. In the Page Layout drop-down, select the style of label you wish to print on.
  2. Select the destination printer from the Printer Name drop-down.
  3. Un-check the box next to Preview before printing. This will not work with a high-speed advanced driver.
  4. Check the box next to Advanced Driver and select your printer from the drop-down. If you are using an unsupported printer, you may still be able to find a driver that works with your printer by checking the Show Unsupported Drivers box.

If you are printing to a file to be sent elsewhere for direct application:

  1. In the Page Layout drop-down, select the top (blank) item to clear the selection.
  2. Un-check the box next to Preview before printing. This will not work when printing to a file.
  3. Un-check the box next to Advanced Driver.
  4. Click the circle to the left of File Name
  5. In the box to the right of File Name, specify the location and name of the file you wish to create when mailing label reports are run. Alternatively, you may click the Browse button to specify the location and name of the file to create.
