This application enables you to generate and print multiple barcodes at once, thereby saving a lot of time when preparing for a mobile/scanning demonstration. Remember that the motto for the most impactful mobile demo is "scan whatever you can". Currently this app can produce Code 128, Code 39 and 2D (Datamatrix) barcodes. Learn about these symbologies here.
- Click “Add a New Barcode.” You can add a new barcode one at a time or click it multiple times (five, for example) if you know you want to create five barcodes.
- Enter a description of what the barcode is for (i.e., Org, Item, Document, Serial Number, Plant, etc.) then enter the characters/values you want in barcode format.
- You can TAB to go from field-to-field, and can choose to Add a New Barcode at any time
- Click Print Barcodes when you’re done. If you Save/Print to PDF, you can use that same sheet again.

Code 128 is a high-density linear barcode symbology used extensively worldwide for ordering, distributing, transporting and tracking items, containers and pallets across the supply chain. GS1-128 (formerly known as UCC/EAN-128) is a subset of Code 128. The “128” means that it can utilize all 128 characters of ASCII character set.
Code 39 is a low-density linear barcode type used for name badges and some inventory and industrial applications. Because each character is composed of five bars and four spaces, Code 39 is not well-suited for small items. This symbology can use 43 characters consisting of uppercase letters (A through Z), numeric digits (0 through 9) and a number of special characters (-, ., $, /, +, %, and space). An asterisk (*) is used as both a start and stop delimiter and this tool automatically embeds the asterisks so you don’t have to.
2D (two-dimensional) barcodes are used in an increasing range of industries including warehousing, healthcare, manufacturing and retail. 2D barcodes can hold significantly more information and remain scannable even when very small.
There are multiple formats of 2D barcodes and this application currently supports Datamatrix.
