you plan on selling your CD or DVD through a retailer,
a disc with barcode is an essential addition to your product.
Also known as a UPC (Universal Product Code), a barcode
is a graphic that contains a unique number that can
be read manually, or automatically by scanning the
barcode. It allows retailers to easily track sales
of your product within their inventory system.
Some retailers insist that your CD or DVD have
a barcode before they will carry it. Many of our customers
don’t require a barcode still opt for it, because
they feel that a barcode gives their product a professional
In order to ensure that no two products contain the same
barcode, all barcode providers in Canada must be licensed
by GS1 (as we are). To obtain a barcode from GS1 yourself
would cost you over $1000. We provide barcodes free to
our duplication customers. Purchase only a barcode for
$30. You just need
to log in
and provide a product name and catalog number if applicable.
