Whether you need a label that helps you track inventory or one that ensures your product arrives at its destination with critical shipping information intact, bar codes are the gold standard of product identification marking. Bar coding has advanced by leaps and bounds since it was first introduced in the 1950s, and the professionals at Aluma Graphics have kept pace with the technology every step of the way. With over 40 years of experience serving businesses and industries throughout the entire U.S., we have the expertise to meet your bar coding needs.
Encoding Your Product with Added Value
At its simplest, a bar code converts critical information about your product or equipment into a visual pattern that scanners can read and translate into text and data. The technology changes a simple identification label into a built-in database of product information. From basic tracking data to statistics about sales and inventory, bar codes add value to your product and to your business in Dallas, Fort Worth, or anywhere in the U.S.
Bar Coding Benefits for Your Business
A bar code can do more than simply identify and track an individual product. Bar codes allow you to ensure that fast-selling products are automatically reordered and restocked. The collected data enables you to predict seasonal fluctuations and to identify purchasing trends. Bar codes can also be used to recognize purchasers, automatically incorporate discounts at the point of sale, and identify duplicate or fraudulent use.
Types of Bar Codes Available at Aluma Graphics
Depending on the type of coding used, your bar code can hold 20 to 2,000 characters. Codes can be either the traditional one dimensional (1D) configuration, with its familiar picket-fence style, or two dimensional (2D) codes like Datamatrix that can organize information horizontally as well as vertically. Whether you need a standard linear 1D code, such as Code 39, that works with virtually any bar code scanner, or one like Code 128 that lets you squeeze more data into less space, the experts at Aluma Graphics can assist you in selecting the bar coding solution best for your nationwide bar coding needs.
