We have all become familiar with barcode labels on products that we see every day at supermarkets and in other kinds of retail outlets, but they have many more uses than just telling the checkout operator the price of the goods. Naturally this method has completely replaced the traditional method of having to manually price each item. A barcode comprises of a continuous series of black stripes and white spaces of different widths. This barcode is usually printed onto products to uniquely identify them.
To read the many symbols that are included in this coding of stripes, they have to be read with a scanner and a computer loaded with the appropriate software. It is not only pricing of course, but the barcoding on the labels can be used in different applications for quick billing, precise calculations
The barcode label can be personalised to suit your business, you can add your company name, logo or any other information on these labels. The material upon which the code is printed is important and the type will depend on the environmental conditions which the product will be stored, displayed and transported. Traditionally barcodes were printed on paper, but today a wide variety of material is available and if necessary, we can over laminate the label for extra protection.
Regardless of the material used, barcode labels will increase accuracy and efficiency within your workplace, they are designed to save on valuable company employees’ time and increase the overall efficiency of the business.
