I've been searching for a way to print shipping/delivery labels for Drupal Commerce (drupal 7 kickstart). I'm amazed that there still seems to be no real solution to this but rather a series of hacks. I was sure this would be adequately covered or even be part of core! We could do this in Ubercart and yet it seems to have been overlooked in Drupal Commerce.
Anyway, we want to be able to print the labels to a label printer as we process each order from the admin screen. The closest 'solution' is this Print mailing address labels from a view. This isn't exactly ideal as we just need a button next to 'Shipping Address' which prints the label to the label printer.
Using the Themer Devel module it tells us we should be able to override commerce-order--backoffice.tpl.php where we were hoping to inject a print code and customise the print fields using the Print Module http://drupal.org/project/print but drupal refused to see our version of commerce-order--backoffice.tpl.php.
We just seem to be going around and around with this one trying idea after idea getting nowhere, very frustrating that this has been overlooked by Drupal Commerce.
Any ideas much appreciated. Chris
