Some bar coding facts when using color ribbons. Scanners read bar code symbols using infrared light source. The most suitable and reliable color is black bars on white background. Other combinations will also work well. Bars must always be darker than spaces. Warm colors such as yellow, red, orange and white are not seen by the scanner and are good for background colors. Cold colors such as green, blue, violet and black make a good choice for bars, as they appear black under red scanning light. Metallic surfaces and inks reflect light away from the scanner, so scanning is extremely difficult. Metallic colors should not be used for bar code printing, these should also be used in the background of the label.
