BarTender supports nearly every barcode symbology. You can see a full list of our supported barcodes on this page.

Before adding a barcode to your label you will need to decide which symbology to use. The type of barcode that you need is usually determined by any individual specifications that you're following and/or your companies individual barcoding needs. Seagull Scientific's Barcode Guide is a great resource for researching the unique characteristics of different types of barcodes.

Once you've decided what barcodes you want to add, you're ready to add them to your template.
