We offer a wide variety of barcode types for our plastic cards to pair with your POS system or scanners. Our barcoding comes with the option of making each barcode unique in its numbering, and we can do that in a couple of ways. Numbering can be done sequentially, with a provided starting number, or we can do specific numbering if given a spreadsheet with those values.

If you are needing random numbering, that would need to be provided in a spreadsheet to us. We do not generate that for you.

Our barcoding includes that encoded number being printed directly underneath the barcode. In order to print the barcode, we also need a white background, so if your design is not white in the area the barcode is being printed we will add a white box behind the barcode.

If you are unsure about the barcode type or numbering that you need for your system, we recommend that you reach out to your POS provider, and verify that information.
