How To Put Barcodes On Your Products?

How To Put Barcodes On Your Products?

By on Dec 15, 2016 in Uncategorized | 0 comments

Have you developed a new product for a chosen demographic in the market? Does your product fulfill a market gap and a relevant need in society? Well, then it’s time to get that product on the retail store shelf. However, one of the requirements for getting your product out there is to include the necessary barcodes required by the retail stores. If you don’t have the slightest clue how to get bar codes on your products, then let us help you: You will have to purchase barcodes from a local authority. There are quite a few resellers on the South African market, and all you’ll be required to do is make a quick Google search. You’re paying for the actual number here, and not a label. The labeling you’ll need to outsource or do yourself! When choosing how to barcode your products, you have a choice of either labeling your barcodes onto products, or including the barcodes on the packaging itself. The barcode can be included during the packaging design. If using stickers, make sure that the barcode sticker is not placed over important product information. Sometimes barcodes are actually printed onto the product themselves. This is often the case with electronics. When choosing barcoded labels, make sure that you select the correct adhesive to put onto the product. Sometimes the incorrect adhesives are used for the likes of furniture, or woods, and the adhesives end up damaging the product. When producing a lot of product, and you are developing the packaging yourself for said products, then it might be a good idea to purchase a barcoding machine. This will print the selected barcodes onto labels for use on your products. This will also help you cut costs in the long run. We hope that these barcoding tips assist you when trying to get your product out onto the local market. Remember: choose Design Packaging & Tapes for all of your labeling and packaging...
