Create Standard Barcodes using IDAutomation Universal Barcode Fonts

by Nate Schubert

Especially useful in Mac, IDAutomation Universal Barcode Fonts allow users in Windows, Mac, Linux and Unix to create a variety of barcodes such as Code 128, Code 39, Interleaved 2 of 5 and even USPS fonts such as Intelligent Mail from a single font. This product works a bit differently than traditional barcode fonts, using a string of letters as its encoded data.

While the art of barcode generation is a bit different with Universal Barcode Fonts, that doesn't mean it's difficult to understand. Check out the video tutorial below for step-by-step instructions about creating standard barcode types with Universal Barcode Fonts and don't hesitate to comment if you still have questions.
