I wanted to send my nephews and niece a present that looked exciting on the outside as well. So I made their names in barcode.
Step 1: Find site
I went to the first site that came up when I 'Googled' barcode generator. I typed in their names and saved the image as a bitmap file.
Step 2: Make page
I made a page in Publisher and added the barcodes I had saved.
Step 3: Print
My original plan was to print the barcodes onto sticker paper, but I didn't have any at hand so I just printed it onto plain paper using my laser printer.
Step 4: Parcel
So I just cut and glued the barcodes on. I only posted it today so I don't know the reaction yet.
