You can purchase barcodes for spirits, wine, cider and beer products from below – you will receive EAN-13 barcodes that are suitable for use on all food and beverage products (including wines and beers) in New Zealand and around the world. Please refer to the FAQ’s at the bottom of this page if you need more information about barcodes for wine bottles.

Many of our customers are craft brewers, distillers and wine growers, wine distributors, and local businesses that produce and market wine, spirits and beer products.
Barcode Artwork Test
We have a new service where we can test your barcode artwork, to give you an idea of whether it will scan well.
This is not an official Barcode Verification Report (which costs $59) as required by some Supermarket and Hardware chains. But is is a test using the same equipment and giving the same information.
This test will be done on your artwork – so you can have more confidence about the quality of the barcode before you go to print – or it will tell you what problems there are with the barcode artwork.
To do this test, please purchase the quantity you require ($20 CAD each), and then email a pdf of the barcode artwork to us. The pdf must be A4 or smaller in size, and 100%. We will print it on a laser printer in B&W (so it won’t test any other print colours) and test it, then email the report to you.
You can view some sample reports below. Grades vary from A (excellent) to C (OK) to D & below which are fails.
