The type of material and printing of a barcode will depend upon a number of factors and is largely dependent upon where the item that the barcode is used for is stored, how it is likely to be used and the method of transportation. Examples would be a durable barcodes that can resist corrosion, heat, cold, UV light and solvents. They might be listed as warehouse barcode labels, industrial use barcode labels and polyester barcode labels. Of course the durability of the barcode label is not restricted to the kind of material it is printed on. For example, thermally printed labels are scratch-resistant and more durable than some ordinary labels; we have different types of high quality labels that are now available to suit different needs.
By using a vinyl sticker to advertise your company, event or project you can be sure that, unlike a paper poster, they will always look smart, clean and a credit to your company or club. Vinyl stickers are seen and used for a variety of advertising purposes, normally seen on the inside of cars, but also on boats and shop windows, inside or outside it does not matter.

Ensuring that your valuable business assets are securely marked is a vital part of any well run business, particularly when you consider that in some cases the value of these assets can amount to many thousands of pounds.
These security labels can be made from a wide range of different materials; also they are usually supplied with a powerful adhesive backing which makes them easier to be applied on any surface, but very difficult to remove. Using these specialist materials and adhesive ensures that should anyone try to remove the label, the barcode labels will break into smaller pieces to show that tampering has occurred.
Peel and reveal labels offer business the ability to put extra information onto their product, in effect a lot more printed word on the same space as a standard label. This is not only important but very timely as major label law changes in the food and chemical industries came into effect in December of last year.
Retailers do not live in a perfect world they have to ensure that the products which they are selling always remain pristine and in tip top condition, irrespective of the temperatures that these may encounter during transit or storage and display.
Perhaps the most difficult situation has to be products that are designed for the deep freeze; the label always has to remain firmly attached to the product and also to be just as readable as it was when attached to the goods.
A well run warehouse is the heart of a well-run business and unless items can be found quickly and easily, valuable company time can be needlessly spent trying to find an item for a customer, or to re-stock shelves. Some of the types of warehouse label are illustrated here and much will depend upon the type of warehousing situation which is relevant for your particular business.
We are all human and as such it is inevitably that we can, on occasions, make a mistake or forget to do something from time to time. This applies to the head of the company as well as the newly recruited assistant.
If there was one area of business which could claim to be the king of lost £billions, it has to be the retail industry, supermarkets, clothing, electrical, it is not confined to a single sector. Shoplifting is an area which retailers have struggled with since people set up stalls to sell merchandise. Many ways have been tried to combat this theft, some quite effective, others not so. However, one which many retailers swear by is the security tags which have sensors that trigger an alert when someone tries to remove the item from a store without paying.
Our vinyl stickers have been use on a multitude of items, for example we have supplied them for wine bottles and as security labels, increasingly they are seen on pharmaceutical products, many items of food packaging including freezer packs where they have to endure extremely low temperatures of minus 20 centigrade.
Assets are by and large numbered in most commercial or industrial premises in order that the company can keep a track of the asset. However, there are a few other methods which can be used instead of numbering to increase business efficiency when stocktaking and equipment tracking.
The traditional and at the time the best way of keeping a record of the items that your business owned, was to number all of these and keep an asset register so that each asset could be tracked. However, with advances in technology this simple numbering process has now moved into the 21st century.
