| Bar Code Numbering | MOD Numbering
There are several option for numbering cards and labels. They
may be numbered with a standard consecutive number or they can be numbered by
using a bar code system, which can be a consecutive or a static number. MOD
numbering can be used for added security.
- Consecutive numbering changes sequentially from card to card or label to
- It can be used as a control feature to provide a distinct identity to each
- Several digit sizes are available for consecutive numbering and some manufacturers
of integrated products may offer more than one size.
- Alphabetic characters can also be used in the number.
- A number can be printed in most any location on a card or label. For numbering
in more than one location, consult your supplier. Affixed cards may have limitations
as to where numbering is allowed depending on the card type. Consult with
your manufacturer for their capabilities.
- Numbering can be added on most cards or labels but the type of numbering
process used will depend on the construction of the card or label. Consult
with your manufacturer as to what process is best for the type of card or
label being used.
The card or label of an integrated product can
be numbered at the same time as the carrier.
Bar Code Numbering
- Bar code numbering is used on many types of applications to code and decode
- It consists of bars and spaces of various widths as shown in the sample
- The bar codes can be static (the same number on each card or label) or consecutive
(sequential from card to card or label to label).
- The scanned information is received without the input errors that can occur
with the use of traditional methods of entering data. Bar coding is a much
more reliable, faster, and efficient method of gathering information.
MOD (Modulus) or check digit numbering involves selecting a
numbering method (MICR, Gothic, OCR, or Bar Code) to be used on documents for
which an additional digit will be printed to the right of a base sequential
number enabling the document owner to verify and control some aspect of the
document, it's contents, or the intended end-user of the document. Click the
