Bar Codes for New product

Postby ElizaC » Mon May 15, 2006 3:01 pm

Hi All,

I am currently getting ready to launch a new nappy product onto the market. It has taken a long time to get it to this stage, and I will explain exactly what it is all about closer to the launch date. I hope to have about 5 products in the same range.

Just looking for ideas/advise on getting bar codes for the product. I've done research into them, but would like to hear any experiences that you guys may have had.

Thanks
Eliza

Hi Eliza, all I know about barcodes is to contact EAN, they allocate particular numbers. AFAIK, if you know someone else who already has barcodes, you can buy some of theirs. I think EAN only give numbers by the 100 or 100 but am open to correction on that.
Best of luck with your product. If you think it'll fit into my business, be sure to let me know!

Hi Cris

Thanks for that. Yes actually I think my product could tie in with things that you are doing very well. When I have my bar codes, address and graphic design finished, I'll give you a shout. I'm very nearly there now!!

Thanks again
