Hello everyone,

I am a business owner and want to start making gift certificates for my customers in increments of $5.00 up to $25.00.

I do not want to pay hundreds of dollars to print out something that i basically do at home.


I am going to use Publisher to make the design for the pre-paid gift certificates, get a randomized number generator for the serial number and the certificate number, but i still want a UPC code that i can scan or a QR Code.

How can i ensure so it cant be reproduced, copied, and can only be used ONCE?

Please help.

Why on would you want to scan it? If you are doing this from home why not just use cash or check?
If you want a qr code however you will have to constantly generate new ones for the ever random serial code. Thats easier to do than UPC Codes

However the UPC Codes are only available after apply to become a UPC Company Partner, may have worded that wrong.
