Barcodes are everywhere, but do you know what they mean?
Barcodes are a simple series of lines and spaces that represent numbers. They're used to identify products in stores so that the store can track inventory and keep track of customer purchases. The barcode is scanned by a machine called a scanner which reads the code and sends through a computer system for processing.
Barcodes were introduced to eliminate the need for human keying of data and to improve productivity – barcodes are relatively low cost to produce and extremely accurate compared to human data entry on a keyboard. They can be read by any scanner or camera that is programmed with their corresponding code number, which is typically 12 digits long (although some codes have fewer).
FUN FACT The first UPC was scanned at a Marsh supermarket in Troy Ohio in 1974; it was an 18-pack of Wrigley's Juicy Fruit gum priced at $1.49.Get a quote for barcode labels
