In this tutorial, I'll demonstrate how to incorporate a barcode into a PDF file. We will employ the picqer/php-barcode-generator composer package to generate the barcode and the barryvdh/laravel-dompdf composer package to create the PDF file. So, let's proceed with these straightforward steps:

Now, let's see an example step by step, you can use this example with laravel 6, laravel 7, laravel 8, laravel 9, laravel 10 and laravel 11 versions:

Step 1: Install Laravel

This step is not required; however, if you have not created the laravel app, then you may go ahead and execute the below command:

composer create-project laravel/laravel example-app

Step 2: Install DomPDF Package

next, we will install the DomPDF and Barcode package using the following composer command, let's run the below command:

composer require barryvdh/laravel-dompdf

composer require picqer/php-barcode-generator

Step 3: Create Controller

In this step, we will create PDFController with generatePDF() where we write the code of generate pdf. so let's create controller using bellow command.

php artisan make:controller PDFController

Now, update the code on the controller file.



namespace App\Http\Controllers;

use Illuminate\Http\Request;

use PDF;

use Picqer\Barcode\BarcodeGeneratorPNG;

class PDFController extends Controller



* Display a listing of the resource.


* @return \Illuminate\Http\Response


public function generatePDF()


$generator = new BarcodeGeneratorPNG();

$barcode = base64_encode($generator->getBarcode('081231723897', $generator::TYPE_CODE_128));

$data = [

'title' => 'Welcome to',

'barcode' => $barcode


$pdf = PDF::loadView('myPDF', $data);

return $pdf->download('itsolutionstuff.pdf');



Step 4: Add Route

Furthermore, open routes/web.php file and update code on it.



use Illuminate\Support\Facades\Route;

use App\Http\Controllers\PDFController;



| Web Routes



| Here is where you can register web routes for your application. These

| routes are loaded by the RouteServiceProvider within a group which

| contains the "web" middleware group. Now create something great!



Route::get('generate-pdf', [PDFController::class, 'generatePDF']);

Step 5: Create View File

In Last step, let's create myPDF.blade.php for layout of pdf file and put following code:


<!DOCTYPE html>
