I need to generate 5–7 Bookland EAN barcodes per year in .eps format to send to my book cover designers.
My predecessor here at our small research center used http://www.barcode-us.com and paid $10 for each barcode, which I have been doing as well. It never occurred to me that I could do it myself with a program or plug-in.
Looking through the forums I can see that there are at least a couple of InDesign plug-ins that can nicely do the job–but for my volume of books, I can’t really argue that we’ll save money by getting a $249 or even $100 plug-in instead of paying $10 a shot.
So are there any sub-$100 Mac-compatible barcode-generating applications out there that you use and like?
