The barcode is an image consisting of parallel lines (bars) varying in thikness and spacing. This image is readable by special optical readers (or by smartphones with cameras) and contains information about the object that carries the barcode. In addition to this linear or one-dimensional (1D) barcode, there are also the two-dimensional (2D) barcodes variants using rectangles, dots, hexagons and other geometric patterns (matrix codes).
Metrographics produces barcodes and QR codes in any quantity, size, shape or color. We produce barcodes from excel files or by increasing number, in combination with other information, with add-on text and images or without. Delivery is done in self-adhesive labels kiss-cutted on sheet or in pieces, cardboard tags, or as it serves you better, and in electronic format (pdf, bmp, emf, png).
