Uses of Barcode Labels

Barcodes offer a cost-effective solution for entities across virtually all sectors to monitor and collect details on products, assets, inventory, and even individuals. Various applications of barcode labels encompass:

Retail Pricing

Warehouse Organisation

Shipping and Recieving

Product Identification

Asset Management

Track & Trace Identification

Manufacturing Work in Progress

Laboratory

Static or Variable Printed Barcodes

Types of Barcode Labels

Classic barcode design featuring alternating black and white stripes, commonly found on items in supermarkets. However, contemporary barcode labels have evolved to embrace a diverse range of symbologies. Typically, barcode labels are categorized as either one-dimensional (1D) or two-dimensional (2D).

Are you in need of bulk identical barcode labels, or does each label require a unique code?

 

S&N Labels is equipped to supply both uniform and variably printed barcode labels.

Uniform, or static, barcode labels are identical in every print run. For instance, a customer might need thousands of the same UPC barcode labels for product uniformity.

Conversely, variable printing enables the production of unique labels for each print. This method can be used to distinguish specific items, categories, or batches, ensuring each is individually traceable. Variable data barcodes are invaluable for accurately identifying, tracking, and verifying items throughout the entire supply chain.

Such labels might feature sequential numbering or derive from a predetermined database of information. Beyond the barcode, variable printing offers the chance to incorporate unique information like text, batch numbers, expiration dates, and even specific design features.

By choosing S&N Labels as your partner for variable barcode labels, we commit to collaborating closely to guarantee the precise formatting of your variable data.

One-Demensional (1D) Barcode

1D barcodes are the most universally recognised form of barcodes. They are linear and encode data through the variation in widths and the spacing between parallel lines. While the data capacity of 1D barcodes is somewhat limited, they frequently link to an external database for additional details. Examples of 1D barcode types include:

  • Universal Product Codes (UPC)

  • EAN Codes

  • Code 39

  • Code 128

  • Interleaved 2 of 5 (ITF)

  • Code 93

  • Codabar

  • GS1 Databar

  • MSI Plessey

Two-Dimensional (2D) Barcode

2D barcodes are graphic symbols that encode information along both horizontal and vertical axes. Compared to 1D barcodes, 2D variants are more compact yet capable of holding significantly more data, eliminating the dependency on external databases. They also offer the benefit of rapid scanning capabilities, often at greater distances. Examples of 2D barcode types encompass:

  • QR Codes

  • Datamatrix Codes

  • PDF417

  • Aztec Codes

  • Maxicode

Gloss Paper Standard

Semi gloss is general labelling from food through to beverages. An over varnish is normally applied (gloss, matt or satin varnish). Paper is not water resistant → an over-laminate can be applied to protect material from moisture. Alternatively, opt for a polyprop label which is waterproof.
