The BARCODE BASICS
You don’t need to play barcode bingo
The avalanche of questions I get, tells me people need a little clarification around buying barcodes. So I created an easy-to-read (rather splendid) Barcode Basics guide.
Printing a barcode that’s wrong means the producer is liable for the cost of reprinting labels or packaging and resupplying all products. Getting it right the first time is easy when you understand your options, the rules, costs involved and mistakes to avoid.
People ask me about barcodes a lot
How much are they?
Why is there a big difference in prices?
Which is the best company to buy from?
Do I need GS1 barcodes?
Do you know the barcode minimum size?
What do the numbers mean?
Does it need a white background?
