Advantages of QR Code Labels
QR codes are a machine-readable collection of data that can be used to describe your product in more detail. Thus, in practical application, they are particularly suitable as an alternative to classic barcodes, saving space and leaving more room for your labels’ designs.
However, the areas of application for QR codes are versatile. By integrating these codes on your labels, you can convey a variety of contents which are entirely determined by you. Thus, QR codes also have a creative component.
Whether it’s for practical or creative reasons, at label.co.uk we are very experienced in printing stickers with QR codes. Therefore, we are happy to print them for you as well as help you generate and implement them – if need be.
Printing Labels with label.co.uk
If you are unsure about the size, contrast or general readability of the code, we are here to help. The pro package of our artwork services includes, among other things, that we create QR codes for you.
Thanks to digital printing, label.co.uk not only produces QR code labels for you in the best quality, but offers you flexibility at the same time. By using digital printing technologies, we can print a different code on each label. All we need is an Excel list with the contents of the individual codes. This makes each label personal and unique.
Personalise Your Labels with QR Codes
The versatility of QR codes makes them ideal for personalising your labels. For this purpose, we apply a special QR code with individual data to your labels. When customers scan the code, it takes them to a specific website, plays a video, gives more information about the product or performs a special action. All, according to your wishes!
QR code labels therefore offer you additional possibilities for the creative design of your products. Convey different contents and surprise your customers in an individual and innovative way!
QR codes can be printed in different sizes. The only important thing is that they are easy to scan for the respective devices, so that they can be read properly. Therefore, even though theoretically all sizes are feasible, we advise you to use a minimum size of 10x10mm for the QR code.
When choosing the label material there are no limits to your creativity. However, we recommend printing on silver or transparent materials with an additional layer of opaque white as a base to enhance readability.
If you want to be on the safe side, our artwork services are at your disposal. The Pro package includes the creation of functional QR codes.
From the beginning of December 2023, QR code labels will gain further relevance and popularity in the EU market. A new EU regulation becomes effective, which will oblige wine producers, bottlers, retailers and exporters to provide information on ingredients, energy content and nutritional values on the wine label in the future. This information can be shown either by means of a nutritional value table on the label or by means of an innovative e-label. These are labels that are provided with a QR code. When customers scan these wine labels, they are taken to a website created specifically for this purpose with the relevant information about the product. These new regulations will be relevant for everyone who sells wine within the European market space.
