What are Barcodes?

A barcode is a sequence of numbers and patterns that are used with optical scanners, known as barcode readers. Barcodes display pattern of parallel lines in different widths, working together with the number sequence to correspond to a particular item, which is then readable by these machines. They are most commonly used for stock management and control. Modern developments in barcodes mean that the original 1D barcodes have developed into 2D variants. These can also be read by application software on mobile devices with inbuilt cameras such as smartphones.

Code 39 Barcode Labels

Typically, barcode labels are printed with a Code 39 barcode, along with a matching sequential number, beginning with any number of your choice. Code 39 is made of 43 characters of discrete barcode symbology in variable lengths. Such characters include uppercase letters (A to Z), numeric digits (0 to 9) and special characters such as the dash and forward slash, along with spaces. Additionally, asterisk is used for start and stop delimiters. Each character is made of nine elements, including five bars and four spaces, with three of them wide and six narrow, translating into a binary value of either one or zero.
