"We bought the IDAutomation UPC/EAN Barcode Font Advantage Package for the ease of use and the ability to integrate it straightforwardly into applications. Our company now benefits by adding on demand barcode reporting into existing software, which allows users to quickly provide barcoded reports." - Anthony Jucha, Rio Rancho, NM
  • Patent-Pending Technology: The latest version of EAN and UPC fonts includes new technology that allows extremely high-quality barcode printing.
  • Advanced Font Encoding: IDAutomation's implementation of UPC and EAN symbologies allows a single advanced font to produce all UPC-A, UPC-E, EAN-8, EAN-13, JAN & ISBN barcodes.

  • Low Resolution Printer Support: UPC and EAN barcode fonts from IDAutomation are designed to print precisely on 203 DPI thermal printers, 300 DPI printers and to higher-resolution printers. When printing at 203 DPI, the point size chosen should be a multiple of 6. When printing at 300 DPI, the point size chosen should be a multiple of 4.
  • Five Heights Provided: Fonts with "S" in the name are "shortened height" fonts that are below what the UCC recommends. However, IDAutomation has observed these shorter symbols used with UPC-A and UPC-E barcodes. Fonts with "M" in the name are "medium height" fonts and are recommended for printing EAN-8 and UPC-E barcodes. Fonts with "L" in the name are the largest with a height of approximately 22mm when printed at 16 points and are recommended for printing UPC-A and EAN-13 barcodes.

UPC and EAN Font Package Overview

Barcoding with UPC/EAN Fonts

View Video Full Screen on YouTube

IDAutomation's UPC/EAN Barcode Font Advantage Package is an advanced font product with encoders, macros and source code that uses a single font file to create UCC-12, UPCA, UPCE, EAN8, EAN13, JAN, ISBN and Bookland barcodes. The fonts meet ANSI, ISO and IEC 2000 specifications (ISO 15420:2000).

To create proper UPC and EAN barcode types, the characters printed must be selected from the tables defined in the UPC/EAN barcode font data sheet. For easy integration into applications, IDAutomation provides several font encoder tools that are free to use with this product. The font encoders automatically format the characters to the barcode font. When it is only necessary to create a single barcode, consider using the Online Font Encoder. If the font encoders cannot be utilized consider one of IDAutomation's other barcode components, image generators or barcode label software.

UPC, UCC, EAN, JAN, ISBN, Bookland, GTIN-8, GTIN-12 and GTIN-13 barcodes may all be generated from IDAutomation's UPC/EAN Barcode Font Advantage Package with the exception of EAN-14, UCC-128 and EAN-128 which are created using code 128 barcode fonts. The primary purpose for these barcodes is to uniquely identify a product and manufacturer for retail checkout and tracking purposes.

Barcode Standards Related to UPC and EAN
  • Add-on Barcodes: An additional barcode may be created just to the right of the symbol to encode additional information. These barcodes are either 2 or 5 digits in length.
  • EAN Code: The European Article Numbering system consists of 13 numbers in EAN-13. EAN-8 consists of 8 digits for small packages. EAN-14 is a type created with the ITF or Code 128 barcode and is not included in this package.
  • ISBN and Bookland: The EAN-13 barcode for a book or periodical is generated from the ISBN number assigned to it. When encoding ISBN in an EAN-13 barcode, the ISBN is preceded by the number 978 and the ISBN check digit is not used. When the ISBN number is encoded in the EAN-13 barcode in this way, it is often referred to as Bookland. For more information, please review the ISBN and Bookland Barcode Tutorial.
  • GTIN: The Global Trade Item Number is used to identify any item that is traded.
  • JAN: JAN barcodes are the same as the EAN codes, except the first two characters are set to "49".
  • UCC: The Universal Code Council creates standards for multi-industry product identification. UCC12 is another name for the UPC-A standard. The UCC barcode is now referred to as GS1.
  • UPC: The Universal Product Code (UPC) barcode has been used in the retail industry in the U.S. and Canada since 1973. UPC-A consists of 12 numbers and UPC-E consists of 12 numbers that are compressed into 8 numbers for small packages.
  • GS1-128: Formerly UCC128 or EAN128, this barcode type is created by the Code 128 font and is not included in this package.
