For retail store shelf stocking and scanning products at the register, we offer a wide variety of Universal Product Code (UPC) bar code labels. For each specific item, the UPC code—or UPC Bookland/EAN code for books and magazines—is linked to its manufacturer and tracked through the GS1 System to provide control and security of goods in the supply chain. To purchase UPC labels, you must first get a UPC number for your product from the GS1 US global standards organization.
If your product is sold in the retail marketplace, it MUST have a UPC code. While mass-marketed items made in mass quantities often incorporate UPC codes directly into their printed product labels, small businesses may want to use UPC labels. Our label experts here at Liberty Labels are here to help walk you through this!
