Get your Barcodes from GS1 US

The companies you work with expect GS1 US barcodes on your products.

To sell your product in a store or online, you'll need a way to identify your product uniquely to retailers.  

When you get barcodes from GS1 US we’ll issue you a unique company identification number, called a GS1 Company Prefix. It’s part of every barcode you create and is the key to uniquely linking your company to your products in the marketplace. 

With GS1 US, you can trust you are getting authentic barcodes. Every barcode you create will point to you as the brand owner of that product. Which is why retailers love GS1 barcodes. When you partner with GS1 US, you'll also get barcodes that work hard for your products on search engines like Google. Watch the short video to find out how. 

Why get barcodes from anyone else when you can get GS1 compliant barcodes directly from the source?

It's time to get your unique product barcode!
