* UPC-A are American format barcodes & EAN-13 are European format barcodes (EAN-13 barcodes are preferred in NZ & everywhere outside of the USA).
A Barcode Package Contains:
1. A unique EAN-13 barcode number
Our barcodes are in EAN-13 format – this means that they can be used on any retail product in NZ and anywhere else in the world. If you need a barcode in UPC-A format (American format) instead, that is fine, just let us know in the “additional information” section when checking out.
2. A guarantee certificate
You can print your guarantee certificate out and use it as proof of ownership of your barcode numbers.
3. Barcode images
We will send your barcode images to you in 5 different formats (jpeg, eps, tiff, bmp & pdf) – you can use whichever format you prefer. The barcode images will be high resolution (600dpi), and will usually come in standard size (approx. 30mm x 20mm) unless you request a different size. Have a look at some of our sample barcode images.
Using your barcode:
1. Insert the barcode image onto the design for your label or packaging
2. Re-size the barcode image (if necessary) – the smallest recommended barcode size is 80% of standard size (approx. 30mm wide x 20mm heigh), although in practice it is okay to reduce the height a bit more than this (eg. down to 15mm) – however we strongly don’t recommend that you reduce the width to less than 30mm.
3. Print the label or packaging – we suggest that you use a professional printer if possible (if you are doing the printing yourself, it is best to use a laser printer). Print a sample first, and check to make sure that the barcode image looks clean and sharp (no ink spread or blurry lines). If you have a barcode scanner, use it to check that the barcode image can be decoded easily by scanners. When you are satisfied that the barcode image scans well, get the rest of your labels or packaging printed.
4. Give your products to your retailers – they will enter the barcode number & product details into their inventory system (they may ask you to fill in a form first). After this, your barcode will be connected to your product. When the retailer scans the barcode, your product details will appear on their computer screen. Some retailers require barcode verification (this is an official test-scan of your final printed barcode to ensure that it scans well) – if your retailers require this, you can order it from our barcode verification page. Our verification tests are performed on the latest verification equipment according to international barcode standards.
