UID Barcode Marking Label Creation Tutorial

by Nate Schubert

UID Marking Labels are becoming more and more common since the Department of Defense first implemented the Item Unique Identification Program (IUID), intended to increase efficiency in asset management between organizations, even between nations and throughout the world. UID Markings are intended affix to an item or directly on an item and should last the life time of the item itself. UID has become a mandatory requirement for the DoD and is seeing more and more inclusion into normal asset management within the DoD.

Creating UID Marking Labels should be accomplished by confirming to the MIL-STD-130 specification, and several types of labels may be created from that. The process for creating UID Marking labels can be very complicated and there isn't a lot of easy-to-understand information currently available about how to actually create the labels.

Fortunately, IDAutomation has recently released a new UID Barcode Marking Labels Tutorial that shows users of IDAutomation's Barcode Label Software Pro or the Data Matrix Font Package how to create UID Marking Labels to conform to the MIL-STD-130 specification in a step-by-step format that is easy to follow.
