For Use With or Without BarTender
The standard functions of true Windows Drivers by Seagull™ are powerful and
flexible enough to generate high-quality barcodes, labels and cards from almost
any Windows program. However, standard Windows programs have no way to access
many of the special "enhanced" driver functions that give
BarTender access to the high-speed features found in most of today's high
performance label printers. The "standard" functions of Drivers by Seagull ensure
compatibility with the widest possible variety of Windows programs and the "enhanced"
functions, when used with BarTender, offer high-performance printing features such
- Full control over printer's built-in barcode capabilities (instead of having to
print barcodes as either a bitmap or a simulated barcode "font").
- Encode RFID chips, magnetic stripes, and smart cards.
- Printer-based serialization.
- Downloadable label formats.
- Storage of the unchanging parts of labels in the printer.
- Caching of graphics and formats in the printer.
