Barcode start number on plastic cards

plastic cards special offer

A customer placed an order today for the 760 micron plastic cards with barcodes. When I asked what number to start the barcode sequence at they just said 1, I enquired as to how many zeros they required in front of this and the reply was that they wanted the usual.

I just wanted to let you know that as far as I know there is no usual, sometimes the software system even needs a certain number of characters for the barcode to be read.

If in doubt I would recommend that you contact your software supplier to clarify the requirements or if you are already using cards with your system have a look what is on these.

Just for information, we can produce the following cards with barcodes:

Full colour in 760 micron 86 x 54mm

Full colour in 680 micron 86 x 54mm

Full colour in 420 micron 86 x 54mm

and Key cards Full colour in 680 micron 29 x 54mm
