Bubbles: The small round buttons at the top of the page allow to reduce the quantity of barcodes you wish to enter at a time.
Make My Barcodes: This will populate the page with all entered Barcode/Name combinations. Previously entered barcodes will not disappear unless the page is reloaded/refreshed or closed.
Switch to SD63 Header: This will replace the unsightly data-entry area of the page with an SD63-themed top banner.
Switch BACK from SD63 Header: If you clicked the SD63 Header button too soon, you can return to the data-entry area by clicking the words "Saanich School District 63".
Size of Names: Default size is 20px. Select the smaller size 18, or larger size 22, for a different size. This updates the entire page instantly.
Resizing and Printing
The barcodes will try to spread themselves out based on how wide your browser window is, and how many barcodes can fit in a row.
The following are the recommended settings for your Page Setup menu in your browser to fit four barcodes in a row neatly on your page:
Assuming a Letter (8-1/2" x 11") Page in Portrait
Left/Right margins: 0.25" or 6.5mm
Top/Bottom margins: 0.17" or 5mm
FireFox (Page Setup...): All "Headers & Footers" set to --blank--
Chrome (Print...): Under "+ More settings", uncheck "Headers and footers" (you can also confirm paper size here)
Can't resize the page because you're using Chrome? If you're ready to print, you can rescale the page to 81% in Chrome now.
Remember to replace the header if necessary, then
Resize your browser window to fit four barcodes neatly on your screen
Inspect the results before committing the document to your printer.
While this tool is designed to provide a useable result, perfect results can not be guaranteed. This tool is not perfect, and individual web browser settings and user skill can greatly affect the outcome.
Thank you for using this stand-alone barcode tool. Barcodes are generated by https://www.barcodesinc.com's free barcode generator and are linked here using this form directly. The "Saanich School District 63" header with motto is repurposed from an SD63 official website; this tool uses the font provided by that site as a result. This tool was made as a matter of convenience and is not intended for any use beyond its original purpose. This tool is not affiliated with barcodesinc.com or any affiliated or government party, and was not created with permission from anyone. Any unintended use of this tool may constitute as abuse of the free barcode generator at barcodesinc.com, or may be construed as a misrepresentation of School District 63, and is therefore prohibited and not recommended.
If the barcode generator becomes unavailable at any time, for any reason, this tool will become unusable. The creator of this tool takes no responsibility for the use of this tool, nor derivitive code created from this tool, but does reserve the right to protect any future iteration under the GNU Public License; this means you are free to do with the code on this page as you like, but the creator does not claim this code to be in any state considered complete. A future version, should it ever exist, may include one or all of the following: (1) Code Clean Up, including better comments, (2) Improved customizability options, (3) Standalone barcode generator.
Oops, I clicked that Rescale link but I'm using FireFox
That link above is meant only as a workaround for Google Chrome users because it lacks the simple page scaling option other browsers have. This tool is not tested in Internet Explorer or Edge browsers, but the link may theoretically work there as a shortcut. FireFox users, however, will not see any change in scale, but the barcode rows will be bugged. This should fix it.
