Introduction

WISK integrates with the DYMO LabelWriter 450 to print labels of your inventory item barcodes.

When counting certain items in your venue, it may be easier or more practical to print the item’s barcode and affix it somewhere (a shelf, bin, etc) instead of scanning the physical item.

The printed barcode is based on the item’s unique WISK ID, so even items that don’t normally have barcodes can still be printed (produce, certain wines, etc).

You can then scan this barcode during inventory instead of having to search for the item or scroll through your item list to find it. Depending on the size of your venue, this can save a lot of time.

Note: If you just want to print a PDF of your item barcodes and not use the label printer, please see:

**This feature is currently in beta. The steps may change and additional functionality may be added as development continues**
