As we develop new products, we need a quick, trusted, and simple way to get new UPC codes. The UPC codes have always arrived within 24 hours, usually faster, and the high-res barcode images have worked perfectly with all of our product packaging. I highly recommend Simply Barcodes, and we will continue to order from them in the future.”
