Bar Codes, QR Codes, Data Matrix, Sequential Numbering, Plus Advanced Options
Variable Data and Serialized Labels
When your application requires a variable data label, our goal is to make a quality, durable label and ordering a simple, easy process.
We have Variable Data options like:
- Sequential Numbers
- Variable Images
- Variable Colors
- Variable Text
- Bar Codes
- 2D Codes
There are a variety of different variable data label options. We have included a label gallery for examples, which may help you design your labels. Variable data information can be printed on any of our quality label substrates, then we add a durable over-laminate, for the quality label you are looking for. We also produce 3D variable data labels, visit our DomeLabels.com website for more information.
Here are some common uses:
- Marketing, Customer Engagement
- Multi-Product Customization
- Product Identification
- Serial Numbering
- Security Labeling
- Asset Tagging
Variable Data Labels
By providing basic information, Variable Data labels can be ordered in a few easy steps. Following are our 3 basic Variable Data options:
1. Sequential Variable Data
This simple variable data option requires a starting number and the quantity of labels. It has variable field(s) that increment on each label, and can have a prefix and/or a suffix. Combined or separate sets are available. (See our variable data features.)
2. File Unique Variable Data
This is the most versatile option. Every field of every label can be uniquely defined. A Variable Data file will be required in a .csv/Excel format.
3. File Quantities Variable Data
This process allows you to have multiple labels that require specific quantities with variable names or numbering. This requires a variable data file in a .csv/Excel format. Generally, 10% extras will be added and order will be supplied 10% over/under.
*Variable Data labels are supplied on sheets. Rolls are available on large runs; minimum run lengths apply.
Additional Variable Data Features
A wide range of options for variable data labeling are available. We are here to help you design the label option to fit your needs. This additional information may help you decide which code will fit your application:
Variable Bar Code and 2D Codes
Code 39: One of the most widely-used bar codes that has a wide range of alphanumeric characters; however, it does not support lower case characters.
QR codes are most commonly used because most phone readers support QR reading. QR codes allow more alphanumeric characters than bar codes and data matrix codes.
Code 128: A compact alphanumeric bar code with error correction.
Data Matrix codes also allow more information to be stored in the code than bar codes. The data matrix codes can be reduced to a smaller size and are more condensed and reliable because of higher error correction level.
Additional code types are available upon request.
Indicate label set requirements, combined or separate.
All Record Guarantee
Although we try to ensure every record or number in the sequence, some may be lost in production. We can guarantee every label with All Record Guarantee (additional fees may apply). Labels are generally supplied as 0-10% under. VD File Quantities option are supplied 10% over/under.
Advanced Variable Data
Advanced variable data options are also available, which include variable colors, variable images, Multiple Artwork Process (MAP), and other specialized services. Contact us for additional information.
