Barcode Design Variables

Zebra Certified Printer and Device RepairA barcode is a combination of lines and spaces that captures information about the item to which it is affixed. Depending on your business, you might want to store details about the serial and lot number, expiry date, color, maintenance schedule, vendor or anything else pertinent to your operational processes. When the barcode is scanned, the data is transmitted to a computer for processing into useful information.

The two primary barcode designs are:

  • Linear symbology configured as vertical lines and spaces read from left to right
  • Two-dimensional (2D) symbology which organizes the information both vertically and horizontally

It is the information criteria on each barcode symbology that differentiate it from other barcodes and maintains the integrity of the data. You might want to add text and various images to enhance the barcode’s uniqueness.

Avoid the High Cost of the Wrong Software

The Importance of Label Design & Printing Software

No two labeling solutions are the same. So, you need to find a solution that works best for you. There are many factors that will have an effect on your labeling solution including your environment, industry, print volume, printer models, and more.

There are many issues companies face by using the wrong software or even outdated software. Some of these issues include lack of standardization, varying levels of integration, costly maintenance, heavy IT burden, long processing times, more.

It’s extremely important to keep labeling consistent throughout every department and every facility. Unfortunately, in industrial environments, its common for each distribution center, factory, or other facilities with an enterprise to produce its own labels for shipments, inventory control, and other processes. Each facility may even have different printers, label templates, and internal processes. The lack of consistency has a negative impact on the company as a whole.

Decentralization adds both time and costs to labeling operations. It also adds risk to production operations.
