In this tutorial, you will learn how to edit any label that was created in the V1 label editor, in case you still want to use that editor instead of converting to the V2 label editor (or creating a new label there). This example uses the V1 editor for Usable Marijuana products.

See our help articles about creating labels using the V2 editor.

A note about converting V1 labels to V2 labels: To convert a V1 label to the V2 editor, click the yellow Convert button. You might decide you don't like working in the V2 editor on that particular label (some of the complex labels don't convert as well as others and you're better off making a new label). If that's the case, you can click the label's "Edit" button to go back to the original V1 editor - nothing you changed in the V2 editor will be saved back to the original V1 editor though.

For current rules and restrictions please refer to their published rules for Packaging and Labelling Requirements which can be found here: 314-55-105

1. Navigate to the Admin>Labels/Templates page in your account

 

2. Click the label's "Edit" button

3. Before You Start:

  1. Enter the correct size for your label

  2. Click on the ‘Preview’ button

  3. Click the ‘Show Table Borders’ checkbox to make it easier to see what’s going on

  4. Make your browser smaller so you can see the label as you work on it!

You can use any size label you want, but in this example we are using 1.25 inches by 2.25 inches

4. Add the fields that you want on the label

  1. Click on ‘Add a New Row’

  2. Click on the blue button to copy the field

  3. Paste it into your label

5. Add the rest of your fields

We will be including the following fields on our label, some of which are required by the WSLCB:

  1. Strain Name

  2. Weight and unit of measure

  3. QA Test Results

  4. Pesticides

  5. Method of extraction (if applicable)

  6. Producer Name and UBI

  7. Processor Name and UBI

  8. Barcode or QR code

  9. WA state consumption warning

 

6. Use Column Settings to clean it up

Now we’re gong to clean it up and make the label look nice. You can make stuff bigger or smaller, and change the spacing too.

  1. Open the Column Settings

  2. Change the Font Size

  3. Add some Top Padding = 2 and some Left Padding = 2

7. Round the Decimal places on QA results

To make your QA results look nice, no matter how many decimal places the Lab enters into the Traceability system, you can round the decimal places by copying this code and pasting inside the curly braces.

[round=1] will round to one decimal place.

[round=2] will round to 2 decimal places.

Here’s an example of finished code that uses the measured value of THCA:

Before:

THCA: {{THCA}}% might look like this: 20.308976%

After:

THCA: {{THCA[round=1]}}% will look like this: 20.3%

8. Save your Work!

  1. Turn off the borders

  2. Click to Save your new configuration

9. Verify your work by looking at a real Label

  1. Open an existing order that’s already been packed and Click Print/Labels

  2. Choose your template and Click Print
