Easy to use Self Checking Barcode Font Advantage Packages
The following barcodes are self-checking. They do not require calculations for check digits because the checking technology is coded into each barcode character making them very easy to use. For non-technical users, IDAutomation recommends using one of these barcode fonts if possible.
- Code 39 - An alpha-numeric bar code, sometimes referred to as the 3 of 9 Code and LOGMARS Code.
- Codabar - A numeric barcode encoding numbers with a slightly higher density than Code 39.
- Industrial 2 of 5 - An older numeric barcode encoding numbers only.
