Design Barcode Layout

Design your desired barcode layout using the required barcode printer software. The software varies depending on the brand and model of your barcode printer.

In my case, I will use BarTender version 9 to designed the layout.

 

For example:

 

  clip0190

 

 

My design has 4 objects.

1. The company name: Peter 24H Mini Market. This is a fixed object and the content is fixed.

2. Item Description: this is a non-fixed object, and the content will be mapped to a specific database field name (refer to Modify Barcode Template)

3a. Item Barcode: it’s advisable to use Code 128 (the Symbology); this is a non-fixed object, and the content will be mapped to a specific database field name (refer to Modify Barcode Template)

3b. Item Code (12345678): (3a and 3b are created together) this is a non-fixed object, and the content will be mapped to a specific database field name (refer to Modify Barcode Template)

4. The Price: this is a non-fixed object, and the content will be mapped to a specific database field name (refer to Modify Barcode Template)

 

For non-fixed object, it is advisable to do the following:

Maximum the width of object…. to accommodate for in case there are longer value/text.
Set text alignment to Center…. so that it looks nicer when the value/text is shorter.

Right click the object and select Properties
 
clip0191
 
clip0192

Then you may Save the layout/format.
