The Global Trade Item Number (GTIN) is the number behind the barcode, but the barcode image is what allows your product to be scanned and recognised at every step of the supply chain – right up to the checkout.
Once you’ve got a GTIN for your product, you can create a barcode image for it using our barcode image generation tool. Your images can then be used in store and online.
There are many barcode image generation services, but only GS1 UK lets you create your barcodes online from your allocated list of GTINs. And it couldn’t be easier.
