BARCODED.WID

 

THESE INSTRUCTIONS APPLY TO DATAMAX, C-Itoh & CITIZEN  BARCODE PRINTERS

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

 

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

(From the Main Menu choose 2,5 for Tag Printing, then choose Change Tag

Layouts and then PageDown and then pick the layout number you are using)

and in the BARCODE FONT CODE BOX type:     d94

 

To make the barcode a bit narrower than the standard width, change the

BARCODE FONT to d42

 

There are other combinations which will change the barcode width and you

can experiment. The barcode font must start with a lower case D followed

by two digits. The first digit is the width of the wider bar and the

second digit is the width of the narrower bar.

 

The standard barcode font used (when you don't specify a special one)

is d52 - this is the best combination because the best ratio of wide

to narrow is 5:2.

 

Note that not every barcode reader can read every width of barcode

Some good barcode readers may be able to read barcode even if it's not 5:2

so you could even try combinations such as  d41  or  d32 or  d42 or d31

 

IMPORTANT:

Make sure your barcode reader can accurately and quickly read

your barcode before you print hundreds of tags. Test the tags in real

situations such as attached to merchandise and after crumpling the tags

a bit.

 

As a separate adjustment, to make the code taller, increase the value next

to the "Height of Barcode" prompt on the tag layout screen.
