Barcode Artwork Test

We have a new service where we can test your barcode artwork to determine whether it will scan well.

This is not an official Barcode Verification Report (which costs $59), as required by some supermarket and hardware chains. But it is a test using the same equipment and giving the same information.

This test will be done on your artwork – so you can have more confidence about the quality of the barcode before you go to print – or it will tell you what problems there are with the barcode artwork.

To do this test, please purchase the quantity you require ($20 each) and then email a pdf of the barcode artwork to us. The pdf must be A4 or smaller in size and 100%. We will print it on a laser printer in B&W (so it won’t test any other print colours) and test it, then email the report to you.

You can view some sample reports below. Grades vary from A (excellent) to C (OK) to D & below, which are fails.

Test Pass A grade
Test Pass B grade
Test Pass C grade
Test Fail Decodability
Test Fail Right Margin
Test Fail modulation and magnification
