Seagull Scientific Releases Version 10 of BarTender Software


Version 10 of BarTender Software adds Card Printing

Bellevue, WA, USA – Seagull Scientific began shipping BarTender version 10 in March, 2012. Coming 25 years after their first release of BarTender, Seagull claims that version 10 is the most substantial software release in their history.  The new release introduces card printing, professional-level drawing functions and major user-interface improvements, allowing Seagull to expand into markets beyond label design and printing.

“We’ve paid very close attention to the rise of card printing these past few years,” says Jeremy Seigel, Seagull’s CEO. “Because the existing ‘card printing software’ companies were charging so much more for the very same design features BarTender already had, it made great sense for us to develop our own true Windows drivers for card printers as well.  We are truly excited to enter this new market and looking forward to the same great success we’ve long had with label and tag printing.”

BarTender version 10 also includes the following additional new features:

  • Encoding of Smart Cards and Magnetic Stripes
  • Powerful, High-End Drawing
  • RFID Support Now in Professional Edition
  • Brand New Properties Dialog
  • Data Type Support
  • New "Select Barcode" Browser
  • Easier Object Creation
  • Better Text Formatting
  • Improved Graphic Support
  • More Flexible Document Format
  • And more.
