BARCODE.WID

 

   THESE INSTRUCTIONS APPLY ONLY TO ZEBRA BRAND BARCODE PRINTERS

   -------------------------------------------------------------

 

To double the width of the barcode, go to the THERMAL TAG LAYOUT SCREEN, and

in the OVERALL FONT CODE BOX type:

 

 ^BY2,2.5,

 

Note the first character is a CARET (shift-6) and the last character is a

comma

 

Note that you cannot make the barcode just a little bit wider. The printer

will allow just single width or double width - not 1.25 OR 1.5 OR 1.75 times.

However, you could triple the width by using a code of  ^BY3,2.5,

 

Note that some tags cannot easily fit a double wide barcode. You may have

to move the position of the barcode on the tag to a position where a

double wide code will fit or you may have to use a different style

of tag.

 

Some good barcode readers may be able to read a small barcode, so if

it is difficult to double to width of the barcode on your tags, you

could send a sample of your small barcodes to a vendor of readers to

let them see if they can read the small barcode.

 

To make the code taller, increase the value next to the "Height of Barcode"

prompt on the tag layout screen.
