  • UPC Barcode Question

    I'm getting a small number of CD's duplicated this month. I know that having a barcode isn't a big deal this time around because I will only be selling these myself. However I would like to go ahead and include it in the artwork from the get-go.

    I already received a UPC number from Tunecore, but I need to figure out how I can create a barcode image to add to the artwork.

    THIS SITE has a barcode image generator, but I don't know what type of "barcode symbology" should be used. I can't seem to find much info about this out there.

    Thanks for the help.

    UPC-A is your best bet, as it is the general retail standard in the USA.
