Can I Print My Barcode on a Coloured Background?

Yes, It is possible to print your barcode in something other than black and white; however, the barcode’s scanability depends on there being a good level of contrast between the background and the bars. A light yellow barcode on a white background would not work well, whereas a dark blue on a white background would probably scan fine.
