Business Barcode Labels Designed for you

Bar Code/UPC Printing

QR Code Label Printing

Utilizing different equipment to optimize production delivery times and lower costs are at our disposal to meet your demands. In some instances a thermal transfer printer will reduce set up and prep charges on short runs. Larger quantities are better suited for Flexographic printing as multiple labels can be printed across the web as well as faster label per minute production.

As an enhancement to your bar code, an inclusion of a QR code should be considered.

QR code (abbreviated from -Quick Response code-)

A machine-readable, optical label that contains information about the item to which it is attached. In practice, QR codes often contain data for a locator, identifier, or tracker that points to a website or application.

The Quick Response (QR code) became popular due to its fast readability and greater storage capacity compared to standard UPC barcodes. Applications include product tracking, item identification, time tracking, document management, and general marketing.

Who uses them
during the month of June 2011, according to one study, 14 million American mobile users scanned a QR code or a barcode. Some 58% of those users scanned a QR or barcode from their homes, while 39% scanned from retail stores; 53% of the 14 million users were men between the ages of 18 and 34. Those numbers continue to increase every year.

How it can help you
QR code has become a focus of advertising strategy, since it provides a way to access a brand’s website more quickly than by manually entering a URL. Beyond mere convenience to the consumer, the importance of this capability is that it increases the conversion rate – the chance that contact with the advertisement will convert to a sale. It coaxes interested prospects further down the conversion funnel with little delay or effort, bringing the viewer to the advertiser’s website immediately.

Tape & Label Converters can help you incorporate a QR code into your custom labels. Call us today.
