Different Types of Barcode Materials

Usually barcodes are printed on white paper or polypropylene materials although, for more demanding applications where durability is essential, we can print on premium materials such as polyester and aluminium. This may be especially important where a label is intended to be exposed or subjected to harsh environments e.g the engine of a vehicle or applied to heavy duty machinery, where chemicals and/or abrasion are commonplace.

Barcode Sizes & Shapes

We have access to a wide range of "pre-sized" dies for printing your barcode labels. We can print most sizes and shapes using our highly sophisticated digital label press and finishing equipment, which eliminates expensive dies or tooling, meaning we can pass on our reduced production costs to you.

If you are in the process of launching a new product, or simply looking for a barcode for an existing one and don't already have a unique retail barcode number, you will need to contact an organisation called They are a global organisation and a small fee is payable for their service. Once you have obtained your own unique barcode number, we can then assist in printing the labels for you.
