Hi - looking for some advice on this style of barcode, this is for a small printed yoghurts style pot.  The printer has requested that the barcode is printed in ladder format but the EAN13 even at smallest size is far too big.  The pot diameter is 7cm at the top and 5cm at the base so I don't think it meets the requriements of the EAN8 barcode?


We are really at a loss as to what we can do -any suggestions?

Hi. You can try EAN8. https://www.gs1ie.or...barcodes/ean-8/

The EAN 8 symbol is used to print the 8 digit GTIN numbers allocated to identify very small retail products. The numbers are allocated directly by GS1 Ireland to a specific product.

EAN 8 Specifications:

    Min. size: 21.38 mm x 17.05 mm
    Max. size: 53.46 mm x 42.62 mm
    Nominal dimensions: 26.73 mm x 21.31 mm
