Barcodes & QR Codes

Ever since their release, barcodes have dramatically changed the way retail, data-management and workflow behave, exponentially increasing the speed in which you can gather information. With this in mind CQ has been investing on the latest software to make sure we are ready to make your next project a reality. We can even merge your variable data and create dynamic barcodes based on your database, this along with our other print security features will make your vouchers, ID/loyalty cards or documents stand out.

Once you run a barcode campaign you can then sync this data with your software and monitor your marketing/sales results. CQ is also capable of helping you obtain a unique barcode for your product. This is commonly used for retail.

There are many different barcode formats – EAN barcodes, UPC codes, ISBN codes, SCC and SSCC shipping container barcodes and many more. Our barcodes specialist can advise you on the best format for your job. We specialise in EAN13 barcodes. This barcode starts with 0 followed by an 11 digit number and finally a verification code. In some cases, for example creating a barcode for a product to be sold in shops, you will need to purchase a barcode number. There are many factors to keep in mind when it comes barcodes so please get in touch with our sales team and we can help you make the most of your ideas (and bring our own).

QR Codes

Take a photo of a QR code with your mobile phone and it will automatically be converted to key information such as contact details, event information or a web link. We’ve used them on some of our promotional materials.
