The barcode images we provide, as part of our barcode packages, are already at the ideal “standard size” for the scanners. Printing these images at 100% magnification is the best way of ensuring the barcode will be scannable. If you print one of our barcode images onto your product packaging you will need to make sure that the “Quiet Zone” (The blank space on either side of the barcode) is large enough for the barcode reader to be able to read the barcode. This advice also applies to barcode label printing, although if you get a professional company such as ourselves to print your barcode labels you can rest assured we will follow the correct procedures.
Do not create a barcode that is less than 80% magnification. The barcode images should be printed at a print quaility of at least 300dpi, with 600+dpi being ideal. It is also not recommended to go below 100% magnification unless you are using thermal printing.
