HDC offer a complete bar code service for
all your Optical Media and CD packaging requirements.
Take advantage of our knowledge and expertise in creating and effectively
integrating a bar code into your product design, allowing it be
appropriately used within the retail market.
Our bar code service includes:
Assigning a unique bar code number which complies with GS1
UK standards for bar coding
The creation of a bar code image in the correct bar code layout
as vector/scaleable artwork
Effectively incorporating the bar code into your packaging artwork
to comply with bar code scanning guidelines.
The accuracy of bar codes remains fundamentally important because
when a bar code fails to scan it adds to the trading process. At
best data has to be keyed in manually, and at worst customers may
reject a complete consignment of goods resulting in lost sales and
possible financial penalties.
