Where do I place my barcodes?

Barcodes are included with your Legacybox and are uniquely numbered, identifying your tape to your order number.

Every item needs a barcode. Start in the upper left, using the top left barcode first that ends in the #1, then utilize the next barcode #2, and continual sequentially.

An item can be:

  • 1 videotape
  • 1 film reel (any size)
  • 1 audio reel
  • 1 audio cassette
  • 1 set of 25 photos prints
  • 1 set of 25 slides


It is generally best to place barcodes next to any preexisting labels on the tape. These labels are usually in the most visible portion of the tape. Placing barcodes next to or over any existing labels is the best way to ensure your barcode is easily seen.

Always be sure to barcode the tape or reel itself and never the case.

For pictures and slides, please place all your photos into a clear Ziploc bag, and add the correct number of barcodes to the bag. If you have 75 photos in a bag, that would constitute 3 items, meaning the Ziploc bag in this example would need 3 barcodes.
