^IS

The
^IS
command is used within a label format to save that format as a graphic image, rather than as a ZPL II script. It is typically used toward the end of a script. The saved image can later be recalled with virtually no formatting time and overlaid with variable data to form a complete label.

Image Save

Using this technique to overlay the image of constant information with the variable data greatly increases the throughput of the label format.
See ^IL.
