One dimensional barcodes are the most common type of barcode. UPC codes are an example of a 1D barcode). These are the barcodes that you see encounter most commonly and are instantly recognizable by the vertical lines.

Two dimensional barcodes are becoming increasingly more common. If you intend to create a 2D barcode it is recommended that you use QR formatting. This is a more widely supported format, especially on mobile phones. Many of the latest smartphones can run applications which allow them to scan 2D barcodes and provide relevent information on the product. Make sure to pick the right app for your type of phone and have fun scanning! To scan two dimensional barcodes with your phone, simply open up the scanning application on your phone and point the camera at the barcode until the camera begins to focus automatically on the barcode. Then, the relevant information should pop up almost instantaneously if it is available. This feature, as you might imagine, is quite a noteworthy innovation and is becoming an ever increasingly popular trend.

The ability to create your own barcodes is invaluable for many businesses, and the number of options provided is vast. If you would like to know more about how barcoding can improve your business contact POSMarket on 1300 737 998.
