Barcode Fonts for Laser Printers
Our fonts add barcode printing capability to any
laser printer, regardless of make or model. These fonts are
formatted in PCL, the native command language used by all laser
printers. Unlike TrueType or PostScript fonts, they can be
used with any operating system, including non-graphical systems. Less
costly than hardware-based solutions, our fonts produce accurate,
fast-printing, fast-scanning barcodes.
These fonts are
ideal for high-volume document production operations where speed and
efficiency are critical. The fonts are suited for systems in which
business software creates printed documents by generating PCL-formatted
- Cost Effective: Much lower
cost than comparable add-in printer hardware modules. For
example, hardware font modules typically cost roughly $150 and up...
$1,500 for a site with 10 printers. Fonts cost only $200 for s
Site License (average of $20 per printer).
- Compatible with All Laser
Printers: These PCL-5 fonts will work with any laser printer, so you
can choose your next laser printer based on cost and performance
instead of being limited to models with available barcode hardware
- Operating System Independent: Font
files can be stored on any host system, independent of the OS, and
downloaded to the printer as needed. Depending on the capabilities
of the printer, the fonts can be stored permanently in the printer's
flash memory or hard disk. These fonts work with Windows Server,
Unix, Linux, Unisys, and other enterprise operating systems.
- Efficient: Each PCL font file is only
about 4K in size, downloads in a flash, and consumes very little
printer memory. The PCL trigger sequences embedded in the printer
data stream add only about 12 to 20 bytes per barcode. The printer
can render the font-based barcode without any processing delay.
- Precise: These bit-mapped fonts
produce barcodes that are accurate to the dot and can be
scanned quickly and consistently, even at high densities. Much
more accurate than TrueType and other scaled fonts.
- Easy to Integrate: Adding barcodes to
documents simply requires inserting commands (PCL escape
sequences) and formatted data into the printer data. The
User Manual includes detailed information and sample code to assist
- Supports Major Barcode Types:
Code 39, Code 128, Interleaved 2 of 5, Retail Codes (UPC and EAN),
"The software seems to work fine.
I've got it installed in batch mode, and all works perfectly. This
is handy, as I was not looking forward to rewriting about a
gazillion little utility apps I had written over the last 20 years
using the HP BarcodesAndMore DIMMs. This seems to be a good
solution, and is totally transparent to my software, no muss, no
fuss. I've tested it with three different printers and it works
great. All do PCL6 emulation and they all responded perfectly; a
HP8100N, and a pair of Okidate B431DN. Good job! --
Thanks, John B."
Barcode Font Kits:
Each kit includes a selection of barcode fonts in various heights
and densities. They provide a quick and economical option for
adding barcodes to your laser printer.
Legacy Barcode Font Kits:
These kits include fonts that emulate the Hewlett-Packard "Barcodes
and More" plug-in font cartridge introduced in the 1980's. As
older printers go out of service, our legacy fonts adapt new laser
printers to work with legacy code with embedded printer commands.
Downloadable PCL barcode fonts designed to match
your specific requirements. An excellent way to deploy exactly
the barcodes you need with a minimum of difficulty.
