In today’s global marketplace retailers, wholesalers, and online marketplaces require a unique identifier to be assigned for every product. Unlike a supplier’s proprietary part number, the required identifier needs to be globally unique and adhere to a worldwide standard. For the United States, this product identifier is the UPC barcode (GTIN-12.) A UPC number normally consists of two primary components: a U.P.C. Company Prefix and a Product Number. Companies who initially require a small number of UPC barcodes, can get individual GS1 GTINs.
Obtaining and implementing UPC barcodes for your products is an easy five-step process.
The GS1 Barcode Service includes precise digital barcode files (.eps) and an assigned certified consultant to assist with every step.
