Frequently Asked Questions about the Barcode Generator

Barcode Generator FAQ Page

What can I make with the Barcode Generator?

You can generate real barcodes which you can then scan with any wired or wireless barcode scanner. We recommend however not to modify the generated barcode image in graphic design software. Increasing the size will change the parameters as well as blur out the lines, making the barcode unreadable.

If you require custom sized barcodes for commercial use, use a barcode label software package instead.

Is there limit to how many barcodes I can generate?

Make as many barcodes as you need! We also have a QR Code Generator to help you make useful QR Codes. Our generator is perfect for the times when you have started your business and not sure about what barcode software will fill your long term needs, or if your current software for making barcodes is not working or has expired.

Is this tool really free?

We built the tool for everyone to use. Whether you need one or twenty barcodes, feel free to utilize our barcode generator for your specific needs. We would also appreciate it if you would share this tool with anyone you know who might need to generate a barcode.

What if I need support?

We are currently only able to provide the barcode generator tool “as is” and offer no dedicated support for it. However, we maintain the tool to ensure the best user experience possible.

Can import generated barcodes into label software?
