Barcodes for Cards

You have three choices when it comes to getting barcodes for postcards or greeting cards:

(1) Each card could be assigned a different 13-digit EAN-13 retail bar code 

This is the best way to go. Retailers prefer this because (a) your barcodes will definitely be compatible with whatever barcoding system they have; and (b) it means that they can do an automatic stock-take (ie. reordering new cards, when the existing stock is selling out, is made much easier). Please scroll down to order an EAN-13 Barcode Package.

 

(2) All of the cards could use the same EAN-13 barcode number, with an extra 2-digit add-on barcode at the end (ranging from 01 up to 99, to represent the different cards)

The disadvantage of this option is that only some retail inventory systems recognise the 2-digit add-on barcodes (others will simply read the first 13 digits, and ignore the 2-digit add ons). If your retailer’s system copes with add-on barcodes, then this option will work well and allows your retailer to do automatic stock-takes. If your retailer’s system doesn’t cope with add-on barcodes then all the barcodes will be treated as if they have the same (13 digit) barcode number – the inventory system won’t be able to differentiate between them. This means that your retailer would need to do manual stock-takes and reordering. If you are interested in this option please send us an email to get a quote ([email protected]).

 

(3) All of the cards could use the same EAN-13 barcode

This means that the retailer’s inventory system will treat all cards exactly the same, so the retailer will need to keep a close eye on which cards are selling out the fastest and which ones they need to reorder (their system can’t automatically do this for them). Please note that you need a different EAN-13 barcode number for each different price category. If you have two different price groups (e.g. your standard birthday cards sell for 7 Euro each, but your larger cards sell for 10 Euro each) then you would need 2 different EAN-13 barcodes.

      NOTE: UPC barcodes are “American standard” retail barcodes, most common in the USA & Canada. If you are selling your product(s) primarily in the USA/Canada please purchase this type of barcode. If you are selling your products in Estonia or anywhere else outside of the USA/Canada please purchase “EAN-13 barcode package” instead (EAN-13 is the “European standard” for retail barcodes). The difference between UPC and EAN-13 barcodes can be seen here. Please note that you can use either type of barcode (EAN or UPC) anywhere worldwide because they are both compatible with all retail systems. If you are selling your product in multiple different countries you just need one barcode on each product (your choice of either UPC or EAN), and you can use that same barcode anywhere in the world.
