Barcode Design Software For Custom Labels
Successful barcode data collection begins with well-designed and professionally printed labels. Barcode design software allows you to create unique identifiers for products, pallets, and locations. Additionally, by printing your own labels, you can customize the layout, overall design, and fields you use to collect and display data.
Barcode label design software and printers will ensure the integrity and quality of your labels, as well as the accuracy of your tracking system. That’s why the careful selection of labels and printing software is imperative in developing your data collection system.
Designing a Barcode Label
Barcodes can carry a lot of important information in a simple and compact form. When the barcode is scanned, the data is interpreted by a computer and uploaded to your other software and devices. 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
Barcode design software enables you to customize label features before they are printed. The unique information criteria on each barcode’s symbology differentiate it from other tagged items.
Adding Graphics & Text
With label design software, you can customize your barcodes with things like text and graphics.
Graphics are an excellent way to emphasize your brand or product. On the other hand, text is a simple way to add important information to your labels. Text can communicate information to personnel without the need to scan the label for more information.
With a variety of different label design software to choose from, it’s important to consider the following before making your choice:
- Type of information to be stored on each label.
- Size of labels.
- Simultaneous or sequential printing.
- Linear or 2D or both.
- Formatting capabilities; adding images, and/or resizing text.
- Any compliance requirements.
- Integration with ERP, SAP, or WMS systems.
- Compatibility with your printers and scanners.
