TEC-IT offers a free online barcode generator. It doesn’t matter whether you are interested in creating QR-Codes, GS1 DataBar, EAN/UPC composite bar codes or if you just want to make linear barcodes like Code128. The Online Generator supports them all. Just browse to tec-it.com, the web-site of TEC-IT. Then select the link Barcode Generator at the top of this web-site. The application is opened in a new window. Scroll down a bit and select the bar code type of interest from the list of supported symbologies. In this example I am using QR Code because I need a code which is readable with most camera equipped smart phones. Then I enter the data to be encoded. I’m using TEC-IT’s web-address

Now Press Create and get immediate results. Right click the barcode to save the generated image on your computer. Depending on your browser, select Save Image As or Save Picture As. Then you can use the image in your artwork. Another interesting feature is, that TEC-IT’s barcode generator can be embedded into your own web-sites or blogs. You can create dynamic barcodes as part of your site! To find out the URL of the bar code scroll down to the bottom of this page. You can find the URL for the current bar code image in the HTML sample code, it is displayed here. The bar code image creation is controlled completely with this URL. It specifies the bar code type, the data to be encoded, the image resolution, the rotation of the image and the adjusted module width. Lets try this now. I copy the complete URL into the clipboard, then I open a new browser tab and paste the URL into the address bar. After confirming with enter, the freshly generated bar code image is displayed. And last but not least this online bar code generator is completely free for private and non-commercial use. I hope this video has been of interest to you. Thanks for watching!
