The type of material and printing of a barcode will depend upon a number of factors and is largely dependent upon where the item that the barcode is used for is stored, how it is likely to be used and the method of transportation. Examples would be a durable barcode that can resist corrosion, heat, cold, UV light and solvents. They might be listed as warehouse barcode labels, industrial use barcode labels and polyester barcode labels. Of course the durability of the barcode label is not restricted to the kind of material it is printed on. For example, thermally printed labels are scratch-resistant and more durable than some ordinary labels; we have different types of high quality labels that are now available to suit different needs.
There are many benefits to using a barcode; these can offer a simple way of distinguishing your items amongst others, asset tracking for example. As you will know, each barcode label has black and white bars, which uniquely identify items; this ensures that barcode labels are economical and less prone to errors compared to manual asset tracking methods, streamlining the entire asset tracking process with ease.
When it has been decided which material should be used for the barcode a number of options are available. For instance unlike in previous times, today we can customise barcode labels with the name and logo of your company; you can even choose the colour and size of the barcode labels.
So with the multitude of uses for the barcode and the number of options regarding the material, adhesive and printing, if you contact us we will be happy to discuss your company’s particular requirements concerning a choice of barcode, provide a quotation and supply samples.
