|Another option is to just
print your own barcode labels. |
I use GNU barcode to generate the labels, as described here:
It says "LTO" but I'm 99% sure that DLT uses the same labeling.
I ended up with the following command. The command is all one line, but i've commented each line here:
# encoding #39 is a barcode standard
# geometry width x height +/- xmargin +/- ymargin (size of each label)
# table geometry columns x lines + leftmargin + bottommargin -rightmargin -topmargin
# margin between cells in the table
# page size
# no checksum character, for codes which allow it (such as #39)
The list of label text needs to be the LABELNAMEFILE, just one per line like this:
The label size i chose is a bit too small. 2.75x0.625 or maybe even 3x0.625 would be better. Looks like the original link used 3x0.625. I know I made it smaller on purpose, so experiment with plain paper and check the size before you print a bunch of labels.
It doesn't like blank lines in the LABELNAME file.
I print on full-sheet sticky labels and cut them up. The link above shows a particular label that works, but i was in a hurry and this is what I had.
