Open source group provides online software to aid users in creating labels on the web

Open source group provides online software to aid users in creating labels on the web (June 23, 2010)
DMN is proud to announce the release of labelgrid preview, an open source full-fledged label printing software based on open technologies such as HTML, Javascript and CSS (Cascading Style Sheets). labelgrid does not use any proprietary third party components or browser plug-in. On top of that, HTML is used in labelgrid for printing. Numerous problems with regard to the use of HTML web printing have been overcome. labelgrid also uses HTML5 capabilities e.g. browser local storage, and due to it's open nature, labelgrid can be easily and quickly ported to the mobile browser platforms.

There are typically two groups of labeling users; the first group purchases standard commercial-off-the-shelf labels in Letter or A4 sizes and prints them over existing inkjet or laser printers. These could be users who are printing address labels or product labels for their companies. The other group purchases specialized equipments like a label printer and prints the labels using rolls of thermal or thermal transfer labels. labelgrid will initially focus on the former group of users and the latter will be supported in the near future.

-Calibration for printing on the web
-Pre-defined label templates
-Custom template dialog
-Saving of label design to browsers local storage

About evolved from a question of whether the current web technologies can fulfill all the labeling requirements required by the industry. The team behind labelgrid believes that browser technologies are converging to the point where a full-fledged label printing software on the web (without the use of a document format e.g. PDF, SVG or XPS) is possible.
