    Google barcode day: make one for your site/blog

    7th October 2009

    bogdan.org.ua barcode Today Google celebrates the invention of the barcode.

    To help in this celebration, you can make a barcode with your site’s address (there is at least one more at barcodesinc, but at the moment of writing it is painfully slow).

    I find these parameters nearly optimal:

    • Type: Code 128-B
    • Styles: Draw value text
    • Size: 234×60 (half-banner size)
    • Xres: 1
    • Text font: 5
    • Value: bogdan.org.ua :)

    If you wish, you can also exactly replicate today’s Google logo – which says “Google”, as you could have guessed.

    You can place this barcode on your “souvenirs” – pens, cups, t-shirts. Many phones now have barcode scanners (e.g. Nokia E71), so put this code onto your namecard.
