HOW TO CREATE BARCODE ON TWO METHODS:
When you are going for shopping to purchase an item you may see barcode behind the item you buy. If this label is scanned then your item’s price and description will be automatically displayed. Not only in grocery or departmental stores, the barcodes are used in car rental companies, library books ,medicine prescriptions, etc.
There are two methods in creating the barcode. One is creating barcodes online and another one is creating it in Excel. If you wish to create barcode, you need to follow these steps.
# Method 1:
Create barcodes online
# Visit to the website Barcode.gs1us.org and get the UPC number for your product or company. You need to give the business and your product details for generating your UPC number. Then you can receive a barcode from them using the online program. Likewise, request the ISBN number at ISBN.org. Using Bowker, you will request an ISDN number from an organization by verifying your business.
# To generate a barcode in online go to BarcodesInc.com then type your UPC or ISBN number and click “Generate Barcode” button. Now you can save your barcode image.
# Place that saved image in the cover of your product, so that you can use the barcodes easily. If you are using it for private use then you can print it and glue or tap on your items.
