Barcode Labels


Links Labels are market leaders in standard and complex VDP (Variable Data Print) including barcodes (static and variable, sequential and complex algorithm types) and numbered labels.

We manufacture barcode labels using the latest HP Digital Technology suitable for small, medium and large runs and 300dpi thermal transfer technology for small to medium runs. Labels using special self-lamination materials designed for high temperature and chemical environments using specialised ribbons and equipment are also available.

With the use of digital technology we can produce VDP labels with multiple colour codings at high speeds keeping our client’s costs to a minimum. For those requiring “multi-part” labels we have an extensive stock range of special cutters.

Data Supply:-

Data for variable barcodes can be supplied in multiple formats including databases, XLS spreadsheets & CSV files. Alternatively supply us with your start/stop numbers and we’ll create them for you.

Barcode/Number formats:-

We can supply your labels in many different formats to suit your specific requirements. Reels of 1,000’s is the most common but we can also supply barcode/numbers in sheets or in fanfold packs.

Material options:-

We can supply your labels on many different substrates to suit any requirement from standard papers to polyprops, vinyl’s, polyesters or special void or tamper evident materials. Laminating and varnishing is available.


Numbers (similar to barcode variable date) can be manufactured and supplied on any material of your choice both singularly and in multiples. With the use of our digital press we can also print reversed out white numbers and/or positive numbers in colour including white on metallic materials.
