Print Templates for Receipts and Lists



When there is a print option within an Evergreen function, there is a corresponding print template that dictates the format, content, and printer used for that print request. In most cases, the screen display does NOT match the printed out.

Edit templates

Each library can customize their local slips. Print templates are created using a combination of basic HTML, CSS, and Evergreen code. Submit a help request for assistance with customizing your templates.

Examples of common customizations are provided in this document, with a preview image of the receipt and a text file that can be copied and pasted into the template edit window.


Images to be added to a print template must be submitted to PLS to be stored on a secure server. The image can be added to the slip using the URL and an "<img>" tag. Submit your image file using this form.

Example code format: <div><img src=""></div>

Format text

To change a section of text's size or emphasis, add style code. To change font size:

 <div style="font-size:150%">Welcome to {{}}</div> 

To change font emphasis:

<div style="font-weight:bold">Welcome to {{}}</div>

Multiple styles can be combined:

<div style="font-weight:bold;font-size:150%;text-align:center;">Welcome to {{}}</div>

Save Locally

Be sure to save any local customizations. Print templates are saved per computer. Use the Export and Import functions to save templates to a flash drive to install consistent templates on multiple workstations.
