Barcode Verification: To Verify, or Not To Verify

What is barcode verification? It’s measuring the quality of a printed barcode to analyze how it will scan in different environments with different equipment. But, do you really need to verify your barcodes? And when is the right time to verify barcodes?

Barcodes should be verified before they enter the retail channel, right after the ink hits the package. Many will wait until after all of the barcode labels have been printed, or will skip verifying their barcodes all together, which could result in massive supply chain issues.

Be sure to get an ISO/ANSI compliant barcode verifier and test, test, test! You can never be too cautious when it comes to verifying your barcodes.
