Many Barcode users require a taller font for easier scanning. I have extended the basic iCollect.it font to cater for this. This is not a work of art, but a practical real-world font, to help users with their personal barcoding (without the expense of a commercial font). iCollect.it is a barcode (and text) version of the "Code 39 Barcode Specification" which can be read by most modern barcode scanners. I added lowercase characters for more readable labels even though they scan as uppercase. *Notes: Use an underscore instead of a space (as space characters are always blank). Place an asterisk before and after your string for it to be recognised. Additionally bracket pairs can be used for more stylish ends for labels etc: () [] <> Happy Scanning!

This font can be used to create barcode stickers and labels that can be read by most modern barcode readers (capable of reading Code 39 barcodes). Any sequence of characters and numbers should start and end with either the asterisk (*) or the bracket pairs shown below.

Awesome. I can't wait to try it out with a barcode reader.

There will be issues over what point sizes are workable (and getting to know what FontStruct creates). I am using an industrial laser barcode scanner for testing, so the retail ones may be a lot fussier.

If I can get some feedback on what works well and what doesn't I can tweak the iCollect.it fonts accordingly. One of the commercial Code 39 font suppliers claims it took 15 years expertise to get it right, so I don't expect perfection from day one :)

Thanks

This is excellent! (And a base font too.)
