Your SMC will prefix all of your company's SKUs, so you only need to buy one for your company. We recommend that SKUs always consist of your SMC followed by five numbers in the format SMCXXYYY, where SMC is your three-letter SMC, XX is a sequential number for which product line this SKU is for, and YYY is a sequential number for the product number in the product line (starting at zero for the base game or product itself). You can also skip numbers in order to band products within a line together where it's appropriate, for example, to differentiate big changes like revised core rules.
For example, if your SMC were ABC:
This structure makes it easy to group related items together and see at a glance which SKUs go to which product lines, while making sure you don't accidentally overlap your SKUs. It also allows you, as well as retailers and distributors, to quickly identify at a glance which SKUs relate to each other, keeps similar items grouped together when items are sorted by SKU, and more.
