Join William Everhart for an in-depth discussion in this video Creating your own barcode, part of Illustrator: Package Design.
…Relying on your client to supply you with a bar ode is one solution.…But what if you need to create your own barcode?…Having the tools in place for bar code generation will…be most helpful when you need to create custom bar codes.…Now, Adobe Illustrator does not have any such tools built in.…So you will have to employ either a third party application,…an Illustrator plugin, or perhaps use a web based barcode generator.…Now I mentioned earlier some of the third party software that you could download and…use to generate your barcodes, but here is…one solution that might be even more useful.…
This is from a company called ESKO, and it's part of…their Desk Pack solution, and is called the Dynamic Barcode Software.…This is actually a plug in that works directly inside of Adobe Illustrator.…Now, if you're on a tighter budget and can't…afford the software right now, you could try this option.…This is a free online barcode generator.…And what this will allow me to do, is to create any type of barcode that I want.…
