Barcoding is not just a convenience, but a necessity. Technology enables us to compress vast amounts of important information into a series of bars and white spaces. With one scan, one can capture any information from product details to the personal information of a hospital patient to the tracking information for a manufactured part. Barcodes are used to track inventory and shipments, control access to secured places, and mark products as tiny as a computer chip or as oddly shaped as a piece of fruit. From protecting your patients to tracking your assets, barcoding is a simple way to keep track of what matters.
When you switch to barcoding, you have your choice of hundreds of labels. “Standard” is a very broad term because you can combine different sizes, shapes, colors, face stock materials, and adhesives to get the label media you need in your choice of rolls or fanfolded stacks. This is great when you want to print your own labels, but when you spend more time creating labels than using them, it might be time to think about getting custom barcode labels.
