QR & Barcode Labels

Guide to QR Codes

QR (Short for quick response) Code labels are a specific matrix bar code (Two dimensional code) that can be read by a specialist reader or by a camera phone or tablet computer with a camera in conjunction with an ‘App’ often freely available. By scanning the code a wide range of information can be collected and stored or used instantly.

Uses of a QR Code Label

Data in a QR code can be customised in any way required including contact details, addresses, link to a company website (URL), product page, you tube video, promotion or event. QR code labels can be manufactured to have unique information or variable data, this data can be supplied in the form of a database or may be a sequential number.

QR Code Labels offer huge potential for business promotional and marketing requirements. They make it easy for a prospective customer to interact with your website or products without any fiddly data entry.

Barcode Labels

Custom Labels have nearly 20 years experience in manufacturing barcode 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 barcode 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.
