This utility and font set converts your 2/5 interleaved bar code data into an actual bar code. Use this utility to build 2/5 interleaved or ITF-14 bar codes and then to copy and paste them into other Windows programs for printing. Use this utility to build bar codes and then to copy and paste them into other Windows programs for printing. Bar codes can be printed on sheets of labels, copied into a desktop publishing program to display a bar code on your packaging, or exported as a gif, jpg, or bmp. These bar code fonts are compatible with virtually any Windows program. For programs like Excel and Access see the package documentation for details on using our Visual Basic macros directly inside of those programs. Click on any orange circle below to view a description of exactly what that control does.
Type of bar code
Select the type of bar code 2/5 interleaved to create. Standard bar codes must have an even number of digits and just display bar code patterns. Human readable bar codes must also have an even number of digits and display bar code patterns with bar code data below. ITF-14 bar codes are 14 digits long, have bear bars, and are often placed in a black outline box.
Enclose ITF-14 in a box
If checked the entire bar code will be enclosed in a box.
Change bar code height
Modify the height of a bar code without changing the width.
Change bar code width
Scale the bar code width up or down by increasing or decreasing the point size.
Enter data to bar code
Type in the number you want to bar code here. You must have an even number of digits in your bar code. Our program will add the Start and Stop characters and translate your numbers into a bar code string.
Make a bar code
Click this button to make a bar code from your number. You will see a sample of the bar code in the bottom window.

You can then paste this bar code directly into virtually any Windows program by pressing Ctrl-V or using the Edit, Paste menu in your program.
Display converted bar code data
This is the string of characters to use with our bar code fonts. Note you can not just type in the 2/5 interleaved bar code fonts. Your bar code number is converted into a data string and this data string must be used with our bar code fonts.
