About Barcodenews.com


NOTE: FEBRUARY 2020 - The website has been moved from Barcode.com to Barcodenews.com


NOTE: DECEMBER 2019 - The Bar Code News will cease operations in the next few months.  It's been ten years and I've loved it, but it's time to say goodbye.  A formal notice will appear in the January 2020 issue of the digital magazine. 


It is our objective at The Bar Code News to provide an informative and useful website for the bar code and auto-id industry.   We provide a variety of news, advice, opinion, reference material and tools including a barcode generator.  The site has over 6,000 articles including hundreds of exclusive articles written by industry experts. 

The penetration of bar code and QR Code technology in the business and consumer world continues to increase.   With the increasingly rapid adoption of bar code scanning on mobile phones the industry is adding hundreds of millions of new users per year.    While a bar code itself is a relatively unobtrusive item, the number of applications for users continues to grow substantially.  

We are an independent company and solely owned by the founder.   We do not own or have an interest in any other company.   We do not sell bar code products or services.     Like any newspaper or magazine, we earn income by selling advertising.   Advertising revenue is obtained by selling space including banner ads, featured listings, newsletter advertising, and so on.  In any given year, approximately 2% of our content is from sponsors and 98% of our content is not from sponsors.  Sponsors allow us to keep this website in business and we are grateful for their support.  

We welcome user comments and suggestions for the site as well as opinions and commentary.  

Sale inquiries:  The domain is for sale.  A long term lease of the domain is also an option.  For information on the value of premium domain names see this page.   For price or lease terms, reach me through LinkedIn.
