"The Code 39 Barcode Font provided by IDAutomation enabled us to ship resources
quicker, with less errors and less human intervention. The process is largely
due to the 'scanable' Packing Slip ID merged to a MS Word document with the Code
39 Font for the ID Bar Code. Other processes we considered required programming
solutions prior to printing packing slips in order to achieve the checksum value
required. Using the Code 39 Font, no programming was required apart from setting
up the MS Word Template with the required MS Excel spreadsheet." - Al
Ebel, IS Manager, Focus on the Family

|"We really like your Code 39 fonts. The ratio and spacing of the glyphs allows them to survive multiple generations of degradation (scanning or faxing) and still be recognizable by our commercial forms scanners. It was this degradation problem that started me on the search for a better font which resulted in selecting IDAutomation"

is an easy-to-print barcode commonly used for various barcoding labels such
as name badges, inventory and industrial applications. The character set
consists of barcode symbols representing uppercase letters, numbers, the space
character and the following symbols: - . $ / + %.

|"For the first time, I was able to download a package that provided me with
all the requirements for my project, contained in one package. This font package
enables us to efficiently track the high throughput of our vaccine production."
- Burke Squires, Eliance Biotechnology, Dallas, Texas
(Logistics Applications of Automated Marking and Reading Symbols) is an
application of Code 39 used by the United States Department of Defense that
recommends a check character.
LOGMARS is defined by Military Standard MIL-STD-1189B and others such as
MIL-STD-129, MIL-STD-129N and MIL-STD-2073-1C. The variety of fonts provided
with the Code39 font package and IDAutomation's
Code39Mod43() function in IDAutomation's font encoder tools
allows for implementation of this standard.
