How do I get a bar code and how do I know if I need one?

If you plan to sell your product through an outlet that uses scanners to track and price, the produce will require a UPC bar code. To acquire a UPC bar code, you must apply through the GS1 US partner Connections program at gs1us.org. A direct link that will walk you through the process is barcode.gs1us.org. Once you are assigned your unique prefix, you can provide us with the remaining numbers to complete the required sequence and we can generate the bar code for printing.
