Custom Printed Labels with Barcodes
At label.co.uk we are able print a range of barcodes and QR Codes as standard on your product labels and promotional stickers. Barcodes can be either supplied as a part of your label artwork or as a separate spreadsheet. Read on to find out more about barcode labels.
What is a Barcode?
A barcode label is a visual, machine readable accumulation of data. Mostly, barcodes are used to describe particulars of your product. When a barcode is not printed correctly, it automatically fails to scan and that can result into high costs for the trading process of your products. Currently, the cost of poor barcodes in the UK lies between £500 million and £1 billion pounds per year.
Therefore, an ideal barcode label is one that represents the correct data, is printed in the correct size and shape and of course, scans at first time!
Can label.co.uk Generate Barcode Labels for New Products?
A barcode is simply a visual representation of a unique, numerical retail code. You would need to supply us with your unique retail code and we can then generate your barcodes with ease. New businesses can register for their retail barcode numbers here (http://www.gs1.org/about)
Can label/co.uk print multi-coloured barcode labels?
In short, yes, but we do not recommend it! Barcode labels require as much contrast as possible to aid readability. A black barcode set onto a white background is by far the most recommended design.
