LoggerDesign Questions and Answers: UPC and Barcodes

Common questions we often receive about UPC/Barcodes...


Q: What size should it be?


A: The minimum recommended print size for a 750mL is 1.5"w x .5"h (38.1mm x

12.75mm)


Q: What colors can I use for my barcode?


A: White and red do not scan, dark colors print best, we can "knock out" the barcode if only using one color/light color.


Q: What barcode system do you use?

A: We use the UPC A printing standards


Q: Should my barcode be vertical or horizontal?

A: We recommend, whenever possible, to print the barcode vertically on a round bottle

to avoid distortion in the lines.


Q: Can my UPC be resized?

A: The UPC can be reduced to 80% and can be increased up to 200% without

jeopardizing the scanability
