Where Do I Get the Code?
All retail products sold in the US have a UPC or Universal Product Code somewhere on the product. The code is actually composed of two parts. You might guess this, because the symbol seems to be divided into two halves, separated by two longer bars in the middle. The first part of the symbol identifies the manufacturer of the product. Thats you! The Uniform Code Council (UCC) assigns manufacturers numbers to be used in making a UPC symbol for your product. You can contact the council at:
7887 Washington Village Dr.
Dayton, OH 45459
The second part of the symbol identifies a specific product that you make. There are five numbers here, so you can identify up to 99,999 different products.
