Item Label printing / generation issue

I have a random issue that I am trying to resolve for a customer of mine. My customer manufacturers fiberglass products. Embedded in the fiberglass is a tag with the part number, their own serial number, and date. They use a very old system to print their labels that is having issues and I want to bring it into the multi-user manufacturing edition of QB that they have (I believe it is 2019). Is there a way to generate / print labels for the parts, not have them in inventory initially, and when the product is finished have them be pulled into inventory? To mess with all of this, they do not track in QB things like the fiberglass used, resin, etc...

Item Label printing / generation issue

I'll help make sure you're able to print inventory labels, @apickard.


You can print those items if you've added them into your QuickBooks Desktop account. From here, you'll need to manually open each item and print the details you need. Here's how: 

  1. Go to Lists menu at the top and select Item List
  2. Double-click the item to open it. 
  3. On the Type drop-down, select Inventory Assembly
  4. Make sure the details are correct, then click Print
  5. On the Print Lists window, click Preview
  6. On the Print Preview page, choose Print. You can see the part number and the description of the item. 

For more information about QuickBooks items, you can visit this helpful article: Add, Edit, and Delete Items. If you want to learn more about customization of item reports, here's an article you can refer to: Customize Item Reports


Let me know on this thread if you have other concerns for any follow-up question in printing the label. I'm always here to help.
