How to… improve barcode image quality
This quick guide helps you to improve the quality of barcode images on your packaging and products (consumer level). It can also be applied to outer packaging (traded level).
It takes you through the best approach to solving your barcode image issues when they occur during the validation of your artwork or verification of your final product.
Getting the dimensions of your barcodes correct, the data encoded and suitable colour use in design are all important first steps. When creating your barcode at the design stage, we recommend you check our GS1 UK Barcoding – Getting it Right guide. This has more detailed information that’s not covered in this guide.
