Did you ever wonder what would shopping look like if there weren't for barcodes? These little black and white vertical lines changed the way retail works. Not only did barcode labels speed the whole trading process, but they also enabled inventory tracking and improved efficiency of business.
Nowadays, barcodes can be seen almost anywhere, on any product or package. Maybe that's why they've become so unnoticeable. It’s usually the time they fail to be read that we start to realize their importance. They sometime really do fail to accomplish their purpose, although they have been around for half a century.
To prevent this from happening, it could be a good idea to learn why do these mistakes happen and how to prevent them. Why are barcode labels unable to be scanned? Is it due to poor printing quality or maybe violating the quiet zone?
