Barcodes are made up of a barcode symbol and number. The symbol can be scanned enabling businesses to identify and track products as they move through the supply chain.
Are you planning to sell your products in the North American market?
Please note our EAN-13 barcodes should work in North America but only if the retailer's system is set up to take 13-digit numbers. Please check with your importer or agent in North America to determine if the stores they sell to (or intend to sell to in the future) can scan EAN-13. If in doubt you will need a US barcode (Universal Product Code - UPC) which contains a twelve-digit number - these are widely accepted in North America.
Please fill out the form below or give us a call (there will be an extra cost for these). If you do need UPC it is usable everywhere in the world so you may not need to label separately for any other market.
