Barcode Labels

Barcodes are a crucial part of product labelling, and they’re much more than just a simple set of lines. To make sure a barcode will be scannable, you have to consider many things.

  • Is it at the right resolution?
  • Does it have an appropriate quiet zone?
  • Does it meet GS1 requirements?

Failure to address these details can result in the barcode getting mixed up with graphics which prevents it from scanning correctly. 

We make sure your barcode labels are fit for purpose

The humble barcode, the unsung hero of the label that you don’t notice until it fails to scan.

We’ve all been there, scanning items at the checkout only to have one barcode not scan and slow down the queue while an attendant is called to manually key it in. Not great when there are tens of thousands of products with the same faulty barcode … that’s tens of thousands of interruptions to the checkout process.

They have an important job to do, but it takes a label guru to make them perform perfectly.

We understand GS1 requirements

  • Height
  • Width
  • Quiet Zone

To sell a product, you need a GS1 barcode number (GTIN) and a graphic. GS1 global unique identifiers are needed for scanning in stores, online and throughout your supply chain. Companies must apply for a barcode to the governing body, GS1. They’ll provide the necessary number and specifications to ensure that the barcode meets industry-standard requirements.

It’s easy to get a barcode from GS1. On their website, you can create an account, answer a few questions about your product, and generate your barcode artwork. You can send us the artwork and we will print a barcode sample for GS1 to verify that it meets their specifications.
