    Wasp Barcode - will also integrate to Reckon Accounts desktop versions so you can print barcodes straight from Reckon

    You do not need any program. You can download the free barcode font IDAutomation. Please don't spend any money. It's not worth it and not necessary

    Hi Trysh

    If you are using Reckon Point of Sale, the administrator program has very good functionality for designing and printing labels with Barcodes.  It works really well for sheets of labels.  You can add text, logos etc too if desired.

    The function is accessible in Pos Administrator > Products.

    If you have Reckon Cloud POS, this does have barcode printing yet, so you will need to look at third party alternatives.

    Hi Graham do you recommend any third party software?

    Hi Ash

    Avery has templates that you can use with word to print labels for their range of labels - www.averyproducts.com.au .  The difficult with this is templates tend to be good at printing out whole sheets of one label, or whole sheets of many labels with 1 label per product.  This will work well if you have a small range of products and print a sheet for each product, then keep the unused ones for future use.

    If you have many products, you are better off looking at a label printer.  These typically come with software to store designs and templates. Officeworks have a range of consumer models (Dymo/Brother) from $100 up.  If you are doing high volume, have a look around for a Zebra printer https://www.zebra.com/ap/en/products/printers.html  from mid $400s up.
