Variable Data Labels

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 website for more information.

Variable Data Labels

Easy blue-20

By providing basic information, Variable Data labels can be ordered in a few easy steps. Following are our 3 basic Variable Data options:

vd labels-100
1.  Sequential Variable Data
Single or Multiple Fields

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.)

Sequential Number
Sequential Bar Code
 2.  File Unique Variable Data
 Single or Multiple Fields

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.

Multiple Variable Fields
3.  File Quantities Variable Data
 Multiple Quantity, Single or Multiple Fields

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 Names

*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 1-100

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 code 2-100

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 128-100

Code 128: A compact alphanumeric bar code with error correction.

Data Matrix-100

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.

Label Sets

Indicate label set requirements, combined or separate.

Combined 2-101
Seperate 3-101
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.
