Let's have some barcode fun!

Make 2 ATC's for 2 partners, 4 cards in total.

The cards do not need to be entirely barcodes but the main focus of the ATC must be a barcode of some kind.


  • Cutting shapes out of barcodes
  • different coloued barcodes
  • altered barcodes
  • replacing items with barcodes

International. Newbies welcome. Those with more than 1 no-send in the past 6 months to contact me or they'll be removed. That said, have barcode fun!

What a cool idea! Thanks so much for thinking of it!

OH! Oh! This is SO my sort of thing! Check out this site for more barcode art: http://www.jetcityorange.com/barcodes/art/

I had thought about hosting a barcode-art ATC swap but felt I had too much on my plate to host another swap, so thanks for doing this, Cloverst!

Here is some inspitartion:

Barcode collage

Of course your ATC's do not have to be collages, this was just the easiest way to find barcodes in art.

Here's a tip. If you upload your ATC pictures to flickr, tag them with barcode and upload them to the barcode photo pool, you may get a gentleman ask if he can add your art to his website of barcode art. How cool!

Zikuka 05/30/2007 #

Back.Roads (Terry) I got your barcode ATC's and they are awesome. I absolutely love them! What an inspiration, and I know mine will not be that fanciful. I can't wait to show these to my sister. She is just now getting into ATC's and she will love these too!!! Thank you. Jessie Mae

Melanie and Eve, your bar code ATCs will be on their way in Tuesday's mail. I'm mailing from Minnesota, USA; so, Melanie, I imagine it will take a couple of weeks (but sometimes the mail surprises us and travels much quicker over the sea! so maybe we'll get lucky!)

Fabulous cards rec'd today from Anati - Thanks!

wiccked 06/ 6/2007 #

Cloverst 06/ 6/2007 #

Thanks anati!

There have been some lovely ATC examples around flickr. A lot of them can be found here. Don't forget you can upload images to the gallery too.

I received ATCs from Shantessa today, very cool "faceless codes" and a great butterfly & bar code one. I'll try to get pics uploaded later.
