To determine the location of the barcode, two things need to be considered: the first is the environment in which it will be read. Avoid placing the barcode in corners, corners, or hard-to-reach areas. When your product is packed in a group or receives a second package, the code position can be easier to read without the external package having to be opened or unmade.
The second criterion is the label design itself. Sometimes the most visible and easily accessible location on the packaging is not the most interesting for the manufacturer, which usually reserves that space for branding and important information. Thus, the combination of these two factors ends up determining the location of the barcode.
There is also another detail that should be checked with your tag and label supplier. In flexographic and thermal printing, it is ideal to align codes perpendicular to the print direction (stepped orientation), as this prevents distortions in the code and increases its quality and accuracy.
Package retail bar code can be purchased at UPC Barcodes for Amazon. You do not need to join or provide any details of your company and/or product as anyone can buy barcodes.
How to buy barcodes?
The first basic step is to know how many barcodes you need. Each product must have its own code, as well as its variations. For example, if a product has different sizes such as small, medium and large, or in different colors and so on, then each variation must also have its own barcode.
Once you have the required number of barcodes, visit quick barcodes, and enter the quantity to find the price. No further information will be required other than the details to make the payment.
Just buy the amount you need, and once payment has been made, your barcodes will automatically be sent to your email and will be yours for life.
We don’t need any other information from you because the retailer is the one who links the barcode number to the product in their own system. Also, no other costs will be required from us, such as membership or annual fees.
Get your barcode
Before you can start using barcodes, you must first obtain them. Barcodes will be your product’s identity, a unique code associated with your company and standardized everywhere. This code is a combination of a prefix, linked to the country and your company, and a second number unique to the product.
Assign the numbers of each product
Once the company already has its prefix, determine the code for each item in its production. As the purchase can be of a single barcode, and as each representative may vary slightly in the process of assigning product codes, this step is done together with the representative responsible for the codes.
Choose a printing process
Here, we’ve already talked a lot about buy barcodes. In general, you can choose between flexography, offset printing, digital printing (inkjet or laser), and thermal printing. For packaging and labels, we recommend flexography for high-volume printing as the cost is much lower per unit. When there are few labels, or when there is variation between them, the best option is thermal printing.
