As a free service to CodeREADr clients, we enable the creation of standard QR codes with the embedded text displayed underneath the code. We also enable the creation of ‘branded’ barcodes for our premium customers. Branded barcodes allow you to select the barcode size, insert a logo or other image, control the display of embedded text and add additional text into a single image. Read our article on generating barcodes with CodeREADr.
Primarily, these barcode images that we generate for you are for inserting into emails and mobile messages. Also, you can print them if you insert the emailed images into Word, Excel or other document programs.
However, you do not have to use our barcode generator. You can scan barcodes that are already on labels, badges, tickets, and assets. Alternatively, you can scan barcodes that you plan to print yourself, such as QR, DataMatrix, PDF-417, Code 39, Code 128, etc. Notably, we can scan up to 50 different barcode types so we will cover your use cases.
Also, if you want CodeREADr to validate the data embedded in your own barcodes, upload a CSV file of those barcode values on the CodeREADr ‘Databases’ page.
Alternatively, you may also purchase badges/IDs with barcodes on them. Importing these codes would follow the same process as outlined below.
