Sample Barcode Images

High resolution (600dpi) sample barcode images

We will send your barcode images to you by email in 5 different formats (jpeg, eps, tiff, bmp & pdf) – you can choose which format you want to use, and insert the barcode image into the design for your label or packaging.

Below are some sample images – you can download them & see which format works best for you (when possible, we recommend that you use the vector eps format as it is the most accurate, however all 5 formats are perfectly fine to use). You can resize your barcode images if necessary (the smallest recommended barcode size is about 30mm wide x 20mm high; however in practice it is okay to reduce the hight a bit more than this – eg. down to about 15mm).

If your order is automated, you will get sent the images in a zip folder together with the guarantee certificate. A sample zip folder containing our barcodes can be seen and downloaded below. If you have difficulties using these, please email us, and we can arrange other images to be emailed to you.
