STRANDWARE INTRODUCES A NEW WINDOWS VERSION OF ITS POPULAR LABEL MATRIX VERSION 3.0 BAR CODE LABEL DESIGNER AND PRINTER WITH BUILT-IN DATABASE

    EAU CLAIRE, Wis., Oct. 26 /PRNewswire/ -- StrandWare Inc. announces the first Windows edition of its powerful mid-range bar code label design, print and database software.  Among its advanced label publishing features are printing accuracy of 1/1000th of an inch, control over bar code ink spread, support for virtually every bar code format in common use, PCX and BMP image support, image rotation and shading, data file imports and a powerful built-in database.  New Label Matrix(R) version 3.0 for Windows is available (December) for $495 (all prices suggested U.S. resale at participating resellers; inquiries invited).
    Label Matrix makes it easy to incorporate graphic images, bar codes, variable-size lines of text and other image elements anywhere on a label layout.  The new Windows version places an emphasis on WYSIWYG ("what you see is what you get") label design and makes especially good use of Windows drag & drop facilities.  With easy mouse movements, a user can design images and maneuver them around any label design.  These image elements can include text areas, bar code areas, imported images (using popular graphics file formats like BMP and PCX), lines, rectangles and shaded background areas.  All label image elements are resizable; users can size and position them to an accuracy of 1/1000th of an inch.  And it includes support for hundreds of impact dot matrix, laser and thermal printers, including high speed thermal transfer printers used in industry.
    Label Matrix can pull its data from its own built-in database or from spreadsheet, dBaseIII-compatible external database files, DIF files or CSV (comma-separated variable) ASCII files, as well as from keyboard or wand input at printing time.
    StrandWare's experience in the commercial bar code industry shows in its advanced feature set.  It can automatically increment or decrement the serial or ID number on a label.  Labels can include the date and time of their printing, text or images from files and more.  They can also include bar codes in virtually every format in common use, without requiring special printer cartridges or fonts.
    Bar code labels have many applications, from speeding mails to identifying products or processing coupons.  They're useful for shipping, tracking and sorting goods, numbering tickets, taking inventory or attendance and tracking documents.
    StrandWare has become a leading manufacturer of bar code design and printing software since its founding in 1985 (as "The Computer Connection").  It offers a full line of bar code design and printing software solutions for end users and developers on DOS and Windows PC platforms and on the AS/400.
