The value of a cheap barcode

There is a very well known saying that goes along the lines of “you get what you pay for” and that would to some degree apply to barcodes as well. We are now used to seeing barcodes every time that we shop, they are the familiar thick and thin parallel lines which have a display of numbers beneath them.

To put it simply, the lines or barcodes are used to attach data to them and can be used for a variety of purposes, pricing, stock control, asset management any number of things. The barcode is read by an optical reader to put the price into the cash register, or to be referenced in a data base for one or other of the purposes required. Today barcoding has taken on a different look and can often be made up of in a range of formats made up of dots, hexagons and even rectangles, but it is still a barcode.

There are now many ways in which a barcode can be produced and with our modern technology, the cost of the barcode has dropped in cost. However, the one thing that a barcode must be able to do and that is to be capable of being read by the optical scanner, which means that the printing has to be precise.
