To print EAN-13 bar codes that
will scan fine with all systems, you need the most precise
EAN-13 barcode font, and just as importantly, a system
that will compute for you which characters to use. This
is, plain and simple, what this package is all about.
Install the program, and that's it ! You do not need to
know esoteric commands and bizarre calculus to use this
product. You will be producing perfect bar codes in
How does it work?
EAN-13 bar codes are used
widely in Europe and gradually all over the planet to
print product codes that will be recognized by point of
sales scanners, as well as robots or hand held devices,
used to manage inventory. Bar codes are the closest
graphic representation of the series of zeros and ones
used by computers to represent numbers. Without going too
much into technical details, bar code fonts are not as
easy to use as regular fonts, because computers need to
verify the value of the product code, and the way they
"think" is widely different from the human way. Because of
that, some calculus is required to print correct bar
codes. This is the job of the enclosed Barcode Wizard.
Our exclusive Barcode Wizard™
program will let you very simply enter the product code,
and process it to obtain right away the data you need to
Just for the fun of it, here is
the way the "check character" is computed for
The parity check character
is computed from the total of even position digits,
multiplied by three, then substracted from the closest
multiple of ten.
Parity check character = 2 + 0 + 8 + 6 + 4 + 2 = 22 * 3
= 66 + 1 + 9 + 7 + 5 + 3 + 1 = 92
Then, look for the closest multiple of 10 to 92, which
is 100 and substract the total.
100 - 92 = 8 (Parity check character)"
There is no doubt the Barcode
Wizard™ will save you aspirin and time!

The Barcode Wizard™
The Barcode Wizard™ takes out
of creating bar codes all the cruel calculus usually
needed for bar code fonts. All you need to know is the
product code. The program will automatically generate the
intricate character chains needed to print scanable bar
is the process:
Enter the item (product) code in the top box
2 Click the "Process" button
That's it! In seconds, the
Barcode Wizard™ has created automatically two important
pieces of information: the barcode itself. It has been
copied by the program into the Windows clipboard, you can
now paste into any standard Windows program such as word
processors, desktop publishing programs, Excel, Word,
Access or any graphic program. All you got to do to paste
the result in your favorite application is to use the
Edit/Paste menu command, or the standard Control-V
keyboard shortcut (in standard Windows programs).
The second piece of information
is the character chain used to generate the bar code with
the EAN13 Match™ font. In effect, what a standard font
would show instead. This information can be useful to
understand the complexity involved, if you where to use
the font without the help of this lifesaver program! This
bit of information can also be useful for printers and
The Barcode Wizard™ can also
generate EAN-8 bar codes. Today, EAN-8 is seldom used.
Please note that in case you
entered a product code shorter than the required length,
it will automatically be padded by zeros. The same thing
occurs when you switch to EAN-8 and back, as the product
code will be shorter for EAN-8.
You can also print the bar
code, to see how it will look on paper, by using the
File/Print command, as in any standard Windows program.
Printing size is optimal at size 90. Smaller may not scan,
larger may not fit on standard stickers. You may want to
compare your printed result to commercial packages. Simply
enter the product code from an "off the shelf" box in the
Barcode Wizard™ to print and tune your graphics. Please
note that most U.S. Made products use a different barcode
standard, called UPC, which is quite different. In
general, EAN-13 codes do not start by zero, but rather by
3 (France) or 5 (Germany) for instance. Another difference
is that usually, UPC bar codes have small digits on each
side of the bar code, when EAN codes usually do not have
small digits on the right hand side. At any rate, if you
enter an UPC code in the Barcode Wizard™ for EAN-13, it
will not look at all like the original, where an EAN-13
barcode will look identical.
This simple to use, affordable
package is not meant to introduce users to the beauties of
rocket scientist EAN-13 parity check calculus, as some
other packages out there seem to conduce. Our goal is
rather, to provide a convenient tool for the business
community. With a simple font and program, you can start
producing scanable bar codes for your packaged products in
minutes, and center your energies towards selling it, the
very reason why bar codes are so widely used today.
This package contains NO
complicated VBA sources, NO intricate macros. It is
intended for use with the simple Barcode Wizard.
