Virtually every retail product sold in Europe requires an EAN (European Article Numbering) bar code. In addition, books the world over require a Bookland bar code. The European Article Numbering system, EAN, was introduced in 1978. There are two different versions of EAN bar codes, EAN 8 and EAN 13, (which can encode 8 and 13 digit numbers, respectively). A special EAN 13 bar code with a 5 digit supplemental code is used to convert ISBN numbers and pricing information to a bar code for books, called Bookland. EAN bar codes encode fixed length numeric data and must have a check digit.
Our software lets you print your own EAN or Bookland bar codes on your documents and packaging, or you can print sheets of labels with EAN bar codes using our templates. Want to print bar codes in Access, Excel, or Word? We include Visual Basic macro functions that do all the work for you. If you are unfamiliar with bar codes, just run the BarEAN utility program to build individual bar codes for you. All versions includes a 16 page manual filled with examples of how to use these bar codes.
