Film Master

Film Master

For symbols in the EAN/UPC Symbology family, the biggest usage of verification has always been in conjunction with printing and production of packaging and labels by means of the conventional or "wet ink" printing processes, such as offset lithography, flexography, and photogravure. These printing processes use a Film Master as the initial artwork of the symbol, although some form of electronic origination of the symbol is increasingly replacing this high-precision article.

These details are required in order to specify the Film Master correctly, or as input parameters for the bar code origination software.
