Texpak is a licensed distributor for many software packages that support printing labels and tags. Virtually all software packages, when used correctly, will produce scannable barcodes. The difference between the various packages is related to how easy they are to use, whether they have all the features you need, how much support the developer of the software provides, and ultimately, the cost. Texpak’s preferred software suppliers are Nicelabel® and Carefree MGI®. While Carefree software is designed primarily for apparel cloth labels, NiceLabel is the most widely used and flexible labeling software program available. Both are easy to use and supported by Texpak’s knowledgeable technical support staff. We are also very familiar with many of the other software packages that customers use and are more than happy to support those as well.

Eliminate printing errors and improve print productivity

The true cost of labeling is the cost associated with printing errors, mislabeling and even product recalls or fines. Other costs that should also be taken into account are labor and training. Best practice is to minimize these costs by integrating and automating label printing with your existing business applications or, for manual printing, customizing the printing interface to the user’s and the processes’ needs.

Carefree® Software for Apparel Cloth Labels

Carefree® for Windows – Software that has all the features needed to makes it easy to print care labels.

  • Fully Flexible label size
    • While you can format any size label, the program includes most sizes commonly used by apparel manufacturers.
  • WYSIWYG (What You See Is What You Get)
    • Designing a label is easy. What you see on the screen is exactly how the label will appear. As you change line height and fonts, the screen changes to reflect your input. You can even reserve “sew space” so that no text can be printed in that area.
  • Wide Printer Selection
    • Carefree® for Windows is a standard Windows program. If you have a Windows driver you can run Carefree® for windows.
  • Symbols and Graphic Images
    • In addition to accepting .wmf, .bmp, and .ico graphic files, the program includes wash care symbols presently used on many labels. These symbols are stored in the program so it is easy to pull them up as needed and place them on the label. The program permits you to place one graphic file or a set of washing instructions on the label.
  • Job Queue
    • You can print many different labels at the same time. After you have entered the label into the print file, the program will automatically print the entire group of labels without any operator intervention.
  • Merge Function
    • The program has the ability to merge a label with variable fields with specific sets of data, i.e. size, color, RN and the desired quantities.
  • Manual
    • In addition to on-line help, the program comes with a complete manual as well as exercises, which demonstrate the capabilities of the program.
