Short and Svelte Barcodes

Sparkle's sample barcodes have been on a diet and are less than half their previous width. Now you can use smaller labels!

Sparkle's sample barcodes have always been magnificently long. But it turns out nobody is impressed by the size of a barcode -- who knew?

Long barcodes become a problem when you have small labels. They get all squashed and barcode scanners have trouble reading them.

So we've made Sparkle's sample barcodes shorter. Much shorter. They're less than half the width they used to be.

The result? Svelte barcodes perfect for small labels.

How do I get the new barcodes?

You don't need to do anything. From now on, every sample you add to Sparkle will have a skinny barcode.

What about all my existing labels?

They still work exactly as before. The sample codes are all the same. You don't need to change anything.

If you'd like to replace your old barcodes with new ones, just let me know and I'll make it happen.

Summary

Everything works just the same, only better!
