| Bar Code Numbering | MOD Numbering
There are several option for numbering 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 one label to the next.
- It can be used as a control feature to provide a distinct identity to each
- The number can be printed in most any location on the label. For numbering
in more than one location, consult your supplier.
- Numbering is available on most any size, shape or type of label.
- The size of the number can range from 1/16" to 5 1/2", depending
on manufacturer's capabilities.
- Alphabetic characters can also be used in the number.
- Numbering can be added on almost any type of facestock.
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 sizes.
- The bar codes can be static (the same number on each label) or consecutive
(sequential from 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
