10 steps to barcode your product
Digital: thermal and laser
Direct Marking: e.g. etching, engraving
If the information is static (always the same), the barcode can be printed using traditional printing presses directly on the package (e.g., tea carton) or on a label that is applied to the package (e.g., label on a juice bottle.)
The human-readable text must be clearly legible and in a size proportional to the symbol size.
HRI should be placed below the barcode and grouped together wherever physically possible while maintaining the HRI legibility and minimum barcode height.
All AIs must be enclosed in parentheses in the Human Readable Interpretation, but the parentheses are not encoded in the symbol.
