A ริบบอนบาร์โค้ด (Barcode Ribbon) is a paper cartridge or roll to which print has been applied using a thermal transfer process. The ribbon is formatted to fit the label size and type required by the printing application. It also contains a heat-resistant coating that prevents ink from smudging when it passes through the print head.
How to create a barcode ribbon
The best way to create a ริบบอนบาร์โค้ด is to first think about the fonts you can use. The most obvious option is to use your computer’s default font, which comes with every modern program. Using this font is fine, but it’s not always the type of text you want to use. For example, if you’re making a gift tag for a friend, you may want to make the font more recognizable to them so they can quickly scan it for tracking information. If you want to make your custom tags, plenty of other options can be used.
In addition to the standard font choices, there are many other options for making your barcode labels. For example, print shop printers often have a setting that will automatically print barcodes on the back of your label sheet. This is great because you only need to print one sheet of labels and have them ready when you’re ready to send out your package.
If this isn’t an option, or if you’d instead not go through the expense of buying separate printer supplies, there are still plenty of ways to add a barcode to any document or piece of paper without investing in expensive hardware.
