Customizing the Wire Label Reports

The label sheets (Model LSL78 from impact,inc.) that these reports were designed to be used with are sheets of 7 columns with 3 rows (21 labels/sheet). The text prints on a white part of the sticker and the rest of the sticker is clear for wrapping/protecting the text.

In this example, we will customize this report to fit Model LSR77 from the available labels. You can customize to this for any other brand of labels if you prefer.

In this example, we will create a custom report based off of a stock Wire Labels report to fit a sheet of labels that has 7 labels across and 7 rows of labels (49 labels/sheet).


Note: I am making some assumptions here since I don't have all of the specs on this sheet of labels. I am going to assume that each label is 1.4 inches tall. Also, no changes are assumed to the "text area" of the label vs. the "wrap area".
