Barcode Fonts

Barcode Fonts & Software is a fonts package that allows you to create industrial-grade barcodes by selecting a font in your graphics, text, spreadsheets, reports, web, or third-party applications.

Using fonts to create barcodes is a well-known practice in the auto-id industry. When a barcode - created using a font - is printed, it rasters to the resolution of the printer and will not be limited to the DPI (Dots per Inch) of an image. This results in barcodes that are of the highest quality and can meet the strictest requirements of many organizations and businesses.

ConnectCode Barcode Fonts & Software is proven in the industry for over 15 years and is widely adopted by many Fortune 500 companies. The elegantly simple-to-use barcode fonts, Excel Add-In, Crystal Reports formulas, library components, and software have helped many companies easily pass independent and strict verification tests such as those by GS1/ISO.

What is a Barcode Font?

A barcode font is a font designed from the ground up to create barcodes using a string of characters. Each character in a barcode font uniquely represents a series of alternating black and white patterns. By combining black and white patterns from text characters, a barcode can be created. A font offers unique properties for controlling the spacing between characters, character width, height, and font size, making it an ideal medium for creating quality barcodes that comply with the strictest requirements of the auto-id industry standards.

With a barcode font, creating a barcode is as simple as loading up a text editor such as Word, specifying a text and applying a font. An important thing to note is that there are many different types of barcodes, some may require a mandatory check digit, others may require an input to support numbers-only or upper-case characters. To ensure compliance with different industry standards, the input text can be validated and a check digit automatically generated by an application (an Encoder).

ConnectCode barcode fonts package provides a standalone Encoder to ease the encoding process, and also bundles other tools such as Add-in for Excel for mass converting columns of data into barcodes. Many Fortune 500 companies use ConnectCode’s SDKs, libraries, and report formulas in their line-of-business (LOB) applications, mobile apps, web, and reporting tools for creating barcodes using fonts, a well-known practice in the industry for creating the highest quality barcodes.
