Can I Print My Barcode on a Colored Background?

It is possible to print your barcode in something other than black and white however the ability to scan the barcode depends on there being a good level of contrast between the background and the unique bars.  So, a light yellow barcode on a white back ground would not work well whereas a dark blue on a white back ground would scan fine in most scenarios. It is a good idea to do a test scan before printing on all of your products.  Also remember, as scanners get more and more accurate, this becomes less and less of an issue.
