Creative barcodes from Japan

It’s not everyday you think about the design of a barcode. Most days you just take it for granted. But Japanese firm D-Barcode has reimagined the barcode and come up with some super creative ways of getting those stripes and numbers onto products.

D-Barcode has been creating custom barcodes since 2005 and designs start at $1,500 for the design, with a further $200 a year for licensing. Looking to get a custom design? That will cost you anywhere from $4,000 upwards. Looking at how innovative these designs are, that seems money well spent.
