Have you ever tried to fax someone a barcode? Most likely you did not have much success. We have evaluated several popular barcodes and found that the Data Matrix barcode is the most dependable in the faxing environment. So, if you are going to be faxing barcodes, consider DataMatrix. DataMatrix is one of the smallest and most dependable barcode symbologies. Compared to other barcode types, Data Matrix is approximately 30 times smaller than a Code 39 barcode representing the same data. To see this difference visually, take a look at our Barcode Symbology Evaluation and Test Sheet. We have more information about DataMatrix in our DataMatrix FAQ and Tutorial.
