Revel version 2.16 introduced the ability to print large numbers of barcode labels or price tags straight from the Management Console.
With DYMO label printers, this is easy and fast to do; these instructions will walk you through the barcode/price tag printing setup with DYMO.
Revel recommends the DYMO LabelWriter 450 (Turbo) for barcode printing due to default print quality (for easy scanning), speed, and the ability to enhance print quality above the default if desired.
We've also tested the slower but still reliable DYMO LabelWriter 450 and had good results.
Price Tag/Barcode Printing Setup
To get started, log in to your Management Console ([yoursubdomain].revelup.com) and switch to the Settings tab. After that, switch to Classic View, then click Price Tag Print in the list of options on the left side of the page.
Once you're there, you should set the options as shown in the screenshot below (these settings have been verified to work with DYMO 450s):

As mentioned, the settings in the image above were tested and verified using the DYMO LabelWriter 450 (Turbo), connected directly to a laptop via USB, using any of the below Revel-supported barcode formats:

Select the label type and number of labels, then click Print:
