Find the Labels You Need with Our New Label Wizard

Posted by Positive Impressions on Jul 5th 2018

Are you not sure which labels will work with your printer or pharmacy software? Do you want to make sure the label design you want will work with your printing system? We know this can be confusing, which is why we’ve introduced a new feature to our website: The Label Wizard. By answering a few simple questions, you can use it to find the labels you need. 

How to Access the Label Wizard

We wanted to make it very easy for users to find the Label Wizard, so there’s several ways to get started. You can find a “Label Wizard” button towards the top of our product category pages as well as a button on the right of most pages that says, “Need Prescription Labels?” You can also simply click on this link to be taken directly there.

Were you interrupted the last time you were using the Wizard? After clicking on the link, it will ask you if you want to restore your last session. If you select “yes,” it will bring you back to where you left off.

Select Your Veterinary Software

Each veterinary software suite has its own labels format. By selecting your software, the Label Wizard will be able to show you labels that have features like warning labels and graphics that won’t get in the way of the text. This software is grouped into three categories:

  • AVImark, Intravet, DVMAX, DVM Manager, Vetstar, VeTech, eVetPractice
  • ImproMed/Infinity and Advantage
  • IDEXX, VPM, IDEXX Better Choice and IDEXX Cornerstone

Is your software package not listed, or you’re looking to reorder labels? Select Option 4, “Software Unknown or Unlisted.” This lets you find a label by its size and appearance.

Need a general-purpose label? Select the last option, “Mailing, Multi-Purpose and Blank Labels.”

Selecting the Label Composition

Depending on your software, there may be two label types available: a one-piece label or a two-piece label that has a perforated edge. With a two-piece label, you can print the drug information all at once, then place the larger label on the medicine bottle and the smaller one on the paperwork that goes with the medication.

Selecting Your Printer

Depending on your software, you may need to pick the label printer that you use, either a Dymo or an Eltron/Zebra printer.

Eltron, Eltron-Zebra and Zebra printers all use the same printer design, and can all use the same labels. The name was changed after Eltron was bought by Zebra Technologies.

Label Appearance

Here you’ll be able to choose the label design you want. If you selected your veterinary software in an earlier step, the designs you’ll be shown shouldn’t interfere with the information that your printer will put on the label. In most cases, you’ll have three options:

  • A blank background
  • A label with a warning at the bottom: “Keep Out of Children’s Reach – For Veterinary Use Only”
  • Other background options like a vet symbol or paw print, usually in combination with the warning.

Once you’ve made this last selection, the Label Wizard will show you the right labels to order and will even take you to the product page.
