Although printing barcodes on hologram labels is possible, it does come with a certain set of limitations.
Virtually all barcodes scanners will be unable to scan barcodes that have been printed on holographic foil surfaces. This is because the surface of most hologram labels is metallic and highly reflective, which in turn interferes with the scanner’s ability to pickup the contrast between the barcode and the surface. Barcode scanners need to be able to distinguish this contrast in order to record a scan. As a result we do not recommend printing barcodes directly on holographic surfaces.
We can however however produce 2 hybrid approaches that can accommodate holographic elements and a barcode. Both of these approaches are detailed below. Please contact us for further details.
