We thought about barcode/QR printing for storage locations, but have not 
yet decided if it would be useful. As we usually have more than one part 
in the same storage location, that would be pretty hard to achieve if we 
simply would add a QR code to the box itself. But if you have only one 
kind of parts in each storage location, well, that would work of course. 
Since we start out to add inlays to each storage location, we could of 
course add QR codes to them. I'm not sure if "inlay" is the correct 
term; I can link a picture of what I mean with that.

Thanks, I just added it!
