final remarks
Final remarks
  • It is not needed to have a barcode reader to start barcoding
  • Always add the text in the barcode in human-readable form
  • Test your barcodes before producing them in mass

(final size and spacing between characters depens on paper and printer quality, and type of barcode reader)
