Order Printer - Flag orders already printed?

So I'm using the Order Printer app to handle printing our batches every day, and it gets the job done. But one thing we've run into is making sure we don't print out duplicate orders. We get ~50 orders a day, so that's 50 being printed at any given time. And the time between the order being printed and the order being shipped can cause some overlap.

What we're looking for is a way to flag the orders as being printed once we've printed them out, so we have a visual cue as to what orders are already being processed, and what orders need to be printed. Perhaps there is an app that already handles this, but I've yet to find one.

TL;DR: Need a way to flag orders that have been printed as "Already Printed".

Thanks in advance.

Hey, 
I don't know if it is possible to flag on Order Printer but Printout Designer shows if a document has been printed

Hi Cameron, it's Jelle one of the Shopify Gurus!

That is a great suggestion, I've forwarded this to our dev team so that they can review it. 
If it gets developed you'll be notified!

Hi Cameron, I think we can help you with your problem. We are running the Printout Designer app that allows you to create and design custom templates using our simple drag and drop interface, so no coding is required. You can bulk print, download, email and save your invoices directly to Dropbox.

Our interface also displays which orders are already printed, emailed or downloaded (and when). You can also filter out orders that are already printed. 

You can try out the app for free for 14 days: https://apps.shopify.com/printout-designer

All the best,
Tanel from Printout Designer

PLEASE ADD ACCESS TO ORDER.TAGS LIQUID. this would solve everyone's problem as then we could add java to the order printer to see if an order is tagged "printed" and create a notification on the printed order.
