We’ve talked with lots of product-based small businesses, and one question that always comes up is, “how can I use barcodes?” Many people have no idea where to start or what they need.

Good news, it’s much easier than you’d think! We put everything you need to know into one 45-page book called “Barcode Your Small Business”. No jargon, just good, practical advice. Even if you already have a barcode system in place, chances are you’ll learn something new!
