    Hello Tracy!  Here is a great thread on the subject
     
     
    Eric is right, you don`t necessarily need the UPC yet, but you need to make sure your packaging has room for it.
     
    goldpanningman, the above thread should clear it up a little

    Hello Everyone,
     
    When in my process of marketing my product to retail stores do I need UPC codes?  My items will likely be in smaller, boutique stores.  I have heard that you don`t necessarily need them right away but I`m wondering if it is easier to just get it over with before we start doing trade shows, etc.
     
    Thanks!
    Tracy

    Thanks for the great advice.  We are actually at the point right now that I could finish the designs and leave a spot for UPC stickers in the future.  Thank you so much.

    Hi Barcodes,
     
    Are you new?  I thought that there was only one place to get barcodes if you wanted one with your own company number.  I`m asking, because I still haven`t done anything about mine but the day seems to be fast approaching.
     
    Thanks,
    Tracy
