Bar Code Labels
Custom Labels have nearly 20 years experience in manufacturing bar code labels, from the smallest PCB label to large warehouse location labels on a range of materials that include polyester, vinyl, thermal paper, paper, polypropylene, destructible vinyl, void polyester and many more.
Basic retail labels are thermal paper or paper printed with an EAN 13 or EAN 8 code and tend to have little other information (Possibly product description and price). More complicated labels may include a logo, sequential number, mark and seal laminate or database information.
