After this you may contact us to get started. When doing so you need to decide the following.
a. Do you need physical labels with barcodes?
o If you have the products in stock and only need to apply the EAN13 barcode a label is the fastest and cheapest way.
b. Or do you only need a PDF of the barcode that you require?
o The products is not yet produced or the manufacturer has not yet shipped them. They can place the barcode on the packaging so its done when you receive them.
