Working on MH10 Label. Can you help me with barcode size

Postby Denis on Mon Oct 31, 2011 8:41 pm

Home Depot. It says in MH10 Zone H:

Block Height: 2” Block Width: 4”
Content: Serial Shipping Container Code
Bar Code Height: min. 1.25” x Dim: min .02”-.025

What does it mean? If I use your Code128 fonts, which font and font size to choose?

To product a SSCC-18 barcode you need to call SSCC18 function (in FontPal and in your program).

To calculate the font size, first find out the X dimension: here is 0.02" = 20 mils.

From font spec table http://www.morovia.com/fonts/code128/, technical specification tab, our Code128 fonts produces barcodes X dimension 6.78 mils at 10 points.

Therefore to achieve 20 mils, font size should be 20.0/6.78 * 10= 30 points.

At 30 points the M fonts produce bar height at 30/10 * 0.42 = 1.26 inch, which satisfy home depot requirement.

Recommended Font : MRV Code128M
size : 30 points.

For shipping container label you might want to take a look at KB10610:
