2D Barcode Fonts

Databar PDF417 barcode font is a two-dimensional barcode font that is capable to encode text, numbers, files and data bytes. It is a stacked barcode composed of rows of linear barcode. Being 2-dimensional barcode allows it to carry more information than the 1-dimensional barcodes. The "417" derives from the fact that each encoded codeword in the barcode is represented by four bars and four spaces. The total width of each codeword is 17-module wide and thus the "17" in the name.
Databar stacked has same characteristics as the DataBar barcode. The data to encode is split in half and encoded as a split level barcode. The height of the top row of the DataBar Stacked barcode is 5 times the X dimension and the height of the bottom row is 7 times the X dimension.
DataBar Stacked Omni is one of the most important two-dimensional barcode used to create a DataBar Stacked Omni-directional barcode, which can encode the 14 digit GTIN. If less than 14 digits are being encoded, zeros are appended to the beginning of the data. Databar Stacked Omni Font is designed to condense the GTIN information into a more compact and square barcode suitable for use on smaller packages.
Databar truncated has the same features as the Data Bar barcode, except the bar height is set to the minimum height of 13 times the X dimension. DataBar Font Package contains a 13x font specifically for this purpose. DataBar barcodes have been used to solve many problems in POS, grocery and medical industries, where items are too small.
Databar UPCA is a 2D barcode font capable of encoding numbers only and highly used in application including Retail industry in the U.S. and Canada. The barcode is intended for encoding the identification numbers of items and their supplementary data. It is more compact and can carry more information than the current EAN/UPC barcode and is thus capable of identifying small items more easily.
Databar UPCE is a 2D barcode font symbology capable of encoding numbers only and has been widely used in application including Retail industry in the U.S. and Canada. It can be used on small and uneven items that traditional bar codes are too big or cumbersome for, and it can also encode a lot of extra information such as coupons and expiration dates.
MaxiCode is 2D barcode symbology that can encode specific amount of information within a square symbol. All 256 characters can be encoded. MaxiCode is used for world-wide addressing, shipping packages and package sortation. MaxiCode encodes data in two messages called the Primary and Secondary message.
MICR is an acronym for Magnetic Ink Character Recognition. It describes the special typeface and ink used to encode the numbers and symbols printed on the bottom line of checks and other documents for high-speed magnetic or optical processing. MICR fonts is used for bank checks and paper based drafting. Magnetic Ink Character Recognition, or MICR, is a character recognition technology used primarily by the banking industry to facilitate the processing of cheques.
PDF417 is a two-dimensional barcode font standard used to pack the great amount of data in the small space. Up to about 850 characters can be dependably encoded and read with the PDF417 barcode symbology. This barcode contains the way to detect and correct errors. The level of correction included can be between 0 and 8.
QR code is known as quick response code. QR-Code barcode uses a small area of square modules with a unique perimeter pattern. The data encoded in a QR Code may include letters, text, numbers, double-byte characters, URLs and files. It is developed by Denso-Wave in Japan and is one of the more popular 2-dimensional barcodes.
