  4. Select Item Barcodes.
  5. Below Sort labels by, enable Include item description.
  6. Choose Item Barcodes.
  7. Add the item.
  8. Click OK.
  9. Click Preview.
  10. Click Print.

  2. In the Select Labels to Print window, tick the radio-button for Item Barcodes and mark the box for Include item description.label.png
  3. Click OK and Print.

If you get the same result, run the QuickBooks Print & Print Repair Tool. This utility can help resolve common errors.

Here's how:


  1. Make sure to close your QuickBooks.
  2. Then, download the latest version for the QuickBooks Tools Hub (
  3. Click the Save File button to continue.label.1.png
  4. Open the file and follow the on-screen instructions to install and agree to the terms and conditions.
  5. Double-click the icon QuickBooks Tool Hub on your Windows desktop to open it.
