World’s Longest Barcode



The 60th Anniversary of the barcode was not too long ago and to celebrate, one barcoding company went all out.

AC Labels of the UK created the longest linear barcode in order to celebrate the barcode’s 60th anniversary. The barcode measures 40m and, using Code 128, says, “HAPPY 60th BIRTHDAY BARCODE” in a machine-readable format on a self-adhesive label.

The barcode is now in the World Record Academy as the longest linear barcode.
