Quick barcode designer

Make barcodes from scratch with this helpful program.

GS1 DataBar Barcode Image Generator provides all the elements you need to create barcodes on a home printer. With a simple layout and great results, this is a perfect addition to a small business.

The program's interface was welcoming from the start, keeping all operations on a single page and providing visual cues for all our choices. This tool was fast and helpful. It was so easy to use that we never felt the need to read the Help file. Our favorite aspect of the program was the way it constantly displayed a sample of your barcode onscreen. As you change the code's numbers or alter its color scheme and size, the barcode display changes, and you instantly see what your changes look like. The end product is a professional-looking barcode that is ready to be printed off on labels and applied to your product, or to whatever items you want to keep track of with barcodes, for that matter, although small business owners will find GS1 especially useful. The program is light on features since it's focused so heavily on its primary function; however, you can save your barcode as a jpeg, GIF, or a half-dozen other file types, which is a helpful option.

GS1 DataBar Barcode Image Generator leaves a watermark on barcodes during its trial period. It comes as a compressed file and installs desktop icons without permission. We love the program's simplicity and its great results, and we definitely recommend it.
