DRPU Card and Label Designer

DRPU Card and Label Designer 8.2

Design and print various types of cards and labels

DRPU Card and Label Designer Software helps you design and print various types of cards and labels. Thus, it supports creating ID cards, mailing labels, address labels, tags, badges, stickers and some more. Its interface layout certainly makes the work with this product quite easy. In fact, the tool resembles a general-purpose drawing program, so, if you have had experiences with this type of software, you will feel quite comfortable using this one. Regrettably, the tool looks somewhat outdated and a redesign using more modern elements is required.

DRPU Card and Label Designer Software allows starting your work from scratch. However, it is probably a better idea to use the accompanying wizard instead. It takes you through various steps in which you select the names, sizes, types of fold and shapes. Likewise, you can pick the type of background, which can be an image as well as a solid color, a gradient or a given style. Finally, it is good that the program lets you protect your label or card with a password to prevent its unauthorized use.

In regards to drawing tools, DRPU Card and Label Designer Software comes with those you can usually find in many design programs. For instance, you can draw lines, ovals, squares and arcs. Moreover, it is allowed to draw free shapes, insert simple and artistic text as well as include images. Unfortunately, the images from its built-in library do not look very attractive or professional.

It is great that it also supports using linear and 2D barcodes, with various types and formats. Likewise, basic operations as cutting, copying, pasting, resizing and arranging are supported.

Like other similar programs, DRPU Card and Label Designer Software allows automating the creation of cards and labels in a sequence. In this respect, it is great that it allows using data set series. Luckily, you can create a data set from scratch but also import existing data from Excel, CSV and simple text files. Then, some objects, like texts and barcodes, can be linked to a data set for their automatic generation.

Finally, when you finish your work, you can proceed to send it to the printer. Moreover, it can be saved to disk in various picture formats, including JPG, BMP, GIF, PNG, EMF, ICO and WMF.

To conclude, DRPU Card and Label Designer Software works just as described by its developers. It is stable and solves the most common problems involved in the creation of cards and labels. Finally, you may be glad to know that this product can be tried at no cost.
