CNET Editors' review
Label Spirit Simple is a powerful label maker that allows users to create labels with text, images, bar codes, and more. Although the program is a bit confusing at first, the program offers many options for label creation.
The program's interface is not particularly intuitive. The program is separated into two components--Label Edit and Label Print--and it is not readily apparent what either of these does. The Print interface in particular is confusing, with lots of little unfamiliar things crowded into the top of the screen. This is unfortunate, because the interface is otherwise quite sleek, and the look of it integrates well with Office 2007 products.
The program's features are many. Users can create labels based on information entered into a database in the Print component, such as address labels or name tags. Labels with sequential numbers can be automatically generated, as well as bar-code labels with various layouts. In general we found the program to be quite versatile, with plenty of options for customizing labels. Because the program contains so many features, it's best suited to users with more complex label-making needs. The built-in Help file is well-written and does a good job of explaining the program's features.
Label Spirit Simple has a 30-day trial period. It installs desktop icons without asking and leaves a file behind upon removal. We recommend this program to intermediate and advanced users; users with a need for basic labels will find that other programs are less confusing.
