when a barcode is not just a barcode


Barcodes can be found on just about everything we buy today, and from what Hayley tells me, they are always a pain to incorporate into the packaging design.  Well, why not turn that eyesore into something of an eye candy.  Design Barcode has been doing this for years, mainly with Japanese clientele.  Designs start at $1,500 for a ready made design, plus a licensing fee of $200 per year.  A custom and exclusive design will cost you $4,000.  This might not be much for major retail products, but for things like limited-print-books, the pricing can be a bit steep.  Plus, I don’t think that it would be that hard to do.
