    How can any monitoring system detect a barcode covered by, say, a shopping bag or, in your case, your sleeve UNLESS the barcode is somehow magnetic or incorporates an RFID.

    It's NOT the barcode they detect, it's the RFID built into the barcoded label.

    Barcode requires line of sight. No sight of the code = an inability to detect the presence or absence of a barcode.

    It's quite simple really.

    Do you know what RFID is?

    How do you plan on keeping it looking as it is? Those (very) thin lines, and the numbers, will blur and become much less sharp over time. I guess touch ups would help, but then you'd be at more risk of a blow out which would ruin it entirely

    It kind of reminds me of the identification numbers tattooed onto Jewish people held in concentration camps.

    I can’t wait to see your disappointment when you walk out of a shop and the alarms don’t sound as you hoped for (based on your previous posts)

    Actually in certain shops they activate the alarm system to detect unscanned barcodes, I know tags set them off but as I said so do barcodes in some places
    That's got to be the stupidest idea ever. All you'd have to do is cover it up with something magnetic.

    If you want to set alarms off in shops, use a tank circuit like they do themselves. It's a ~26pF ceramic capacitor and a coil of around 20-25 turns, connected to make a loop (without a battery). It picks up and reflects high-freq RF.
