Barcode readable True Type font

The trouble with barcodes

We use barcode readers to track boxes of stock and have found a number of issues with the fonts available.

Generally they are either too expensive, unreliable (when printed) or don’t support lowercase letters (on the human readable lower part). We also hate seeing the “asterisk” markers required at each end.

In the true style of geeks when it doubt, reinvent the wheel:

After a little investigation, we created our own Code 39 Bar code font that meets our specific requirements.

We quite like the FontStruct website. Give do give it, and our font, a try and leave feedback.
