Do I need a UPC and how do I get one?
UPCs, or Universal Product Codes, are used for tracking products in stores. In a retail environment the ability to track products for inventory is essential and is used globally. Though the first barcodes have been in use commercially since 1966, it became apparent pretty quickly that there would have to be a standardized design. In the early 1970s researchers began developing this standardized scanning design and scanner. The first item to be scanned was a pack of Wrigley’s Gum in June of 1974. »

The Nutrition Keys or Facts Up Front Program and Packaging
We deal with a few companies that sell food products here at Nuvonium. In 2010 when Michele Obama asked the food industry to come up with a front-of-the-box labeling system that would help consumers quickly make informed decisions about the nutritional value of the food they are purchasing, we were eager to learn about what that would be like and how it would work. »

UPCs as Art
When I was in college, all my fellow art college students used to joke about one day you’ll see us designing in the bar code factory. A self deprecating inside joke about our individual talents to make it in the corporate world. How funny is it that nearly 15 years later popping up all around me is a world of art using UPC’s. I feel I’ve missed the boat somehow and all my former classmates have gotten on in life just how they planned. »

Digital technologies are changing our industry and will remain a focus in the future but the need and desire for print will still exist for many years to come. »
