I own version 4.7 since 2007 and I had been using it just to produce one type of bar code (UPC-A) for my packaging designs for the past 5 years. Back then it was $150 and I could deal with that. Recently I was planning to upgrade and I was SHOCK to find the price tag is $300. I am a freelancer and I find this price tag is just incredibly unacceptable. Most people just use it for one thing or two repeatably. I would be nice if you can make other type of bar codes as an add-on which makes more sense. I can see myself justifying Adobe Illustrator for $600 because it matches the price for what it does. But Barcode Producer at $300? Not good! I will keep my current version until it stops working on my latest OS, then, I look somewhere else.

Version 6.6.1

I am not joking.... $299 at their official website. Don't know where MacUpdate got this $199 price from and it is still unjustified. If you go to AppStore and search for barcode applications, it ranges anywhere from $3 to $150. Now that's more like it!


Shop around! Depending on your requirements, there are plenty of alternatives. For example, how about Barcode Basics, also available on the Mac App Store at $9.99?

Best UI of the apps I've had a look at. Easy to use, intuitive and nice looking.
But Barcode Producer's number of codes is quite limited, it even cannot create QR codes. And then there's the ridiculously high price ...

Greetings from Apparent Corporation,

Glad you like our interface design. In response to your feedback:

- QR Codes: Barcode Producer 6.5, released on March 28th 2011, adds support for QR Codes. We've outdone ourselves (if I say so myself...) with an extremely nice implication, support for URL shorteners, even built-in support for making barcodes for the App Store. Check it out.

- Other barcode symbologies: We see Barcode Producer's symbology support as extremely comprehensive. Don't be fooled by programs that list the same barcode types over and over with slightly different name variations -- Barcode Producer supports nearly every barcode type in active use today.

- Cost: Barcode Producer isn't expensive at all, especially for what you get -- a quality, professional barcode generation product built for designers and supported by a team of professionals.

Please do let us know if we can assist or answer additional questions for you -- hello@itsapparent.com. We're always happy to help.

I was using Mac Barcode label until I tried the demo for this. Since my client was paying for the program (I have no use for it other than product packaging), price wasn't a big issue. This application rocks! The Help me choose button is a time-saver, especially with the myriad barcode formats out there. It does everything you could possibly want and a few things you didn't know you needed. Keep up the great work (but work on the price so other people who are cash-strapped can use it!).

This is a great little program to create professional barcodes. The reason it does not get five stars is because it's so very expensive for a one trick pony. I was able to get my client to pay for it but I personally wouldn't have. There are other limited free barcode programs and you can make them yourself for free with the correct font. However these alternatives are not as fast, flexible and easy as BP.
I would value this at about $75. I would also be willing to bet 2 to 3 times as many people would pay for it at that price as well.

Version 4.7

Yes, agree. I stumped up for it - because it's without question the best in class, and I really needed the convenience and quality - but it's kind of pricey nonetheless. It's a great piece of software, without question, but you do end up feeling you've been gouged for it: whereas if it was in the $50-70 bracket...


And I would like to see an option to outline the fonts in the final barcodes. Then again, perhaps that is a well hidden feature, or maybe I'm just getting too old to be able to find such things.


sure, I would.
