Custom Barcodes

Why customize a Barcode?

It’s is your own decision as to whether you want to customize a barcode or not. This is not necessary, however it can make your barcode and product a little more eye catching. Some people choose to adapt their barcodes in various ways for this reason.

What can you customize on a Barcode?

When you are customizing a barcode, you should avoid infringing on the actual bars (or scannable area) of the barcode. If there is anything blocking this area, the barcode may not be scannable as a result. Most people have something growing out of the top or bottom of the barcode (i.e. leaves or trees etc). There are various examples below. Please take a look.

How to design your custom barcode?

The easiest way to customize a barcode is probably to talk to a graphic designer. If you want to do this yourself, you may be able to, but will need a considerable amount of graphic design skill. We can also potentially help you to arrange something like this. Please contact us if you want to discuss.
