Candy stores use labels to identify products and their prices. Watch the video below to see how candy store label printing works and the different options available to you when using barcodes and price labels and more.
Candy Store Label Printing: Barcode and Price Labels
Your candy store needs to label its products. You might use a label to display information about the product or simply to share its price. A barcode label holds as much or as little information as your system needs to know about your candy. When a customer arrives at your cash register with items using barcodes, all you have to do is scan for accurate pricing and inventory control.
Selling by Weight
Many candy stores have at least some items that are sold by weight rather than by a pre-set price. The barcode holds the product number and the weight of that product. Employees use the scale to weigh the item and the barcode is printed. Bepoz point of sales systems can read the barcode on the label printed by the scale.. A price is automatically calculated using the data held on the label. In addition, inventory is automatically deducted with each scan. For items that are sold by weight, inventory is deducted according to the exact amount shown.
Printing a Candy Ingredient List
Does your candy store make its own candy? Many stores make their own fudge, hard candies, and ice cream. Perhaps you buy from a local vendor who doesn’t have the ability to print their own candy list. Whether you make the candy yourself or buy it, you will want a printable ingredient list. Label printing that allows for ingredient printing is vital for diet-conscious consumers or those with food allergies. Customers need to know if your items are made with tree nuts or other common allergens. They might also object to eating certain foods. In this case, a printed ingredient list is the best way to communicate content to customers.

Hey, this is Tim with Bepoz candy store point of sale systems and in this video, we want to talk about label printing and with Bepoz, there are really two different ways to print labels. We want to talk about this and about the more than two different functions for labels.
The first way of printing labels is I may just want to print a straight barcode label that has a barcode and a price. Now that label could serve two functions. It could be so that I would barcode that product or it might be so that I’m adding a price to that product or it might be both right. So you could just use this as a price label for all of your products or you could use it as a barcode label for products that you created and you just want to put a barcode on them.
This kind of label is typically for selling products as an item, not by weight. The other way of printing labels is by weight. This isn’t a product that we’re selling by item. So for instance, let’s just say we’ll give a couple of examples of how this could be done. Let’s say you’re selling a Hershey bar and you want that Hershey bar to have a price on it. Well, you could print a label out of Bepoz for the Hershey bar that not only has a replication of the barcode that you use for Hershey bar but has the price that you want to sell that Hershey bar. That would typically be a barcode label or a label that we’re printing just to put the price on the Hershey bar. That would be an option.
Another option is that you’ve created your own bar, a chocolate bar, and I want to be able to scan this at the barcode scanner in order to expedite my transaction workflow when I’m checking people out. So I’ve created my own bar, and so I create the label and it says ABC bar, whatever the name of your bar is or whatever the candy product is you want to call it, and then it has a barcode on it and it has a price. So now I’ve taken my own internally created price product and I put a barcode label on it so that I can scan it and sell it at the register.
Now the last kind of label that we would print in a candy store could have two or more functions, but one is that I want to produce this label for an item that has weight, and so I’m putting the items and I’m selling them by weight. So what I do is that the barcode that I have embedded in the barcode is the product number and the weight of the product so it knows that this is 2.5 ounces of jelly bellies for instance. So when I scan the barcode, it automatically knows the price. Now the bar, the label, has the barcode and it has the price, and it has that it’s jelly bellies. But when I scan it, it’s actually doing a deduction by weight from our inventory and again, it knows the weight and the item code from the barcode label.
Now one more option is that, and that comes out of a scale that prints labels, there is also the option with those scales that print labels to print an ingredient list. So if you want to print an ingredient list, you could then do that out of one of those label printing scales. Technically, you could print that ingredient list from the other previous label printing options that we discussed as well.
So lots of label printing options, lots of different ways that you could use this in your candy store for all sorts of scenarios that you might have depending on if you’re buying candy or creating candy or both.
