Barcodes speed up the process of picking and shipping packages. The barcode numbers can be generated with the help of a suitable software program. These numbers are generated against the stock level. The assets must be serialized before beginning this process. The barcode can be printed directly on the package or first on a sticker which is then stuck on the package. Most printing devices can be used for product barcode label printing.
The barcodes can be generated online as well. There are some online programs that help generate barcodes. When looking for a barcode label printer, you should make sure it has certain features. Check its printing resolution specification. It should be able to print barcodes in the range of at least 200-600 DPI resolution. You need a less hardy printer for printing only a few labels a day. However, you have to buy a durable and industry grade printer if you have to print thousands of labels every day. Check the label sizes it can handle and whether it has COM or LPT connection type.
