How to Generate GS1-128 Barcode Labels

by Nate Schubert

GS1-128, formerly known as UCC/EAN-128, is a type of barcode standard that was designed to bring businesses together into one global standard by allowing application identifiers that define the data encoded in a barcode. The GS1-128 standard may only be met through the creation of a Code 128 barcode which fits the parameters specific to GS1-128. There are a wide variety of application identifiers that can be applied to a GS1-128 barcode, and including this type of information can ease the process of communication between companies, thereby fostering an environment of increased efficiency and smoother operation.

This video tutorial demonstrates how to generate a GS1-128 barcode with the IDAutomation Barcode Label Software for printing onto labels of virtually any dimension or stock.
