Cannabis Inventory Control: Barcodes and Consecutive Numbers


Any company suffers if they do not have strong inventory management procedures, but for cannabis retailers operating in a new and often uncertain regulatory landscape, it’s hard to understate the importance of effective inventory control. While retailers are working to find the appropriate solutions to solve their inventory headaches, producers of cannabis products need to be on top of their inventory as well. At Dion, our label printing team can help alleviate some of the pain associated with inventory control by creating a label for your product that has inventory management measures built right in.

We have over 50 years of experience printing labels to make the lives of the brands we partner with easier, so we know how hard it can be to efficiently and economically manage your inventory. As cannabis brands enter their new and in many ways unchartered market, a great way to help with inventory control is through barcodes. UPC codes are the most universally recognized type of barcode, and not only will having the appropriate barcode help you with your own inventory monitoring, but it is unlikely that any retailer would consider shelving your product without one. You can determine how many unique barcodes you will need for your products and purchase them through GS1 US. If you want to know more about sizing and placement of your barcode, read our blog on the subject here.

 Another way to help with your brand’s inventory management and to make it easier for potential retailers is through consecutive numbering. Dion can print numbers on your label based on your specifications of range, size, and placement. For smaller companies, consecutive numbering on labels can make keeping track of product much simpler, and might be just the solution your company needs to keep your inventory under control.

If you are looking for ways to manage your inventory, Dion can help. As the cannabis industry grows, you want your brand to grow with it. Contact us today so we can customize a solution that works for your brand in the expanding cannabis market!
