The September issue of Automation World presented a short list of questions to consider when designing and apply bar-code labels. Courtesy of Bryan Vidlar, a senior technology consultant at Standard Register, a document service provider based in Dayton, OH.


Vidlar suggests these questions:

  • • How long will the label stay on?
  • • What will the label be exposed to?
  • • Should the substrate be paper or synthetic?
  • • Should the adhesive be permanent or temporary?
  • • Will it be exposed to a cold environment?
  • • How much data will be encoded?
  • • Will the label be removable without residue?
