How can I view a barcode on a Trello card and print it?

We have been using Trello for a work order system for three years now.  It has been very successful and we create about 200 cards a month with it.  Now, we need to track inventory (rolls of carpet in this case) and we've looked at off-the-shelf inventory systems.  However, we think that if we built it in Trello that we would have a better, more integrated solution.  The problem area is placing a barcode into a card and then printing the card with barcode on a label printer.

Are we asking too much of Trello?  Has anyone done anything simpler who could share with me the right approach to take?  Thanks!

Hi John,


That's a tough one! If you were able to generate the bardcode as an image, you could attach that image to the card, and then use a Chrome extension to customize the printout of that card. There are a couple of Chrome extensions that might work, like this one:


Right now, I think the image would be your only way of adding the barcode in a readable format to your card.
