Why customize a Barcode?
While it is never necessary to customize a barcode, many people like to do it in order to make the barcode a ‘better fit’ for their packaging. This may mean making the barcode look like something else, or having it grow into something.
What can you customize on a Barcode?
There is a limit to what can be customized on a barcode. You shouldn’t infringe on the part of the barcode that adheres to the EAN-13 specifications, as this can affect the scannability of the barcode. Hence, the majority of barcode customization involves shaped coming out of the barcode rather than the barcode itself actually changing shape.
How to design your custom barcode?
This may be something you can do yourself, if you have a reasonable degree or skill as a graphic designer, however you could also talk to your own graphic designer to see what they can do, or talk to us. We may be able to help you out with some designs.
