Sample Barcode Images

We send barcode images to our customers via email in several different file formats. If you order a barcode package, the barcode images will be emailed in 4 formats  (jpeg, png, svg & pdf).

Please have a look at some of our sample images below (you can download them if you want to – just right click on the links and save the images to your computer).

All of the images are standard barcode size. If some of the images appear blurry, it could be because they don’t work well with your particular graphics software. If possible, we recommend that you use the vector .eps barcode image (because it is the most precise).

If your order is automatic, you will be sent the images in a zip folder together with the guarantee certificate.

Standard EAN Barcode

EAN barcode image (retail barcode)

The above barcode (EAN) is 13 digits long & is the most common type of barcode worldwide (for retail products). In the USA, the 12 digit UPC barcode is preferred – it looks exactly the same as the example above, except that it does not have the first digit”0″ in the number below the bars. If you require a UPC barcode, that’s fine – please email us to let us know.
