Barcode Dimensions

 

EAN-13 Barcode Symbol Dimensions (at 100% magnification):

 

Barcode Magnification Standards:

The allowable magnification range for an EAN-13 Barcode Symbol is POS 80% – 200% (X-dimension 0.26mm-0.66mm).

Note: To find the overall bar code width required (from the table below) you must include the Left & Right Quiet Zone dimensions (as well as the “Bar Width” dimensions). Therefore,  a barcode at 80% magnification needs to be at least 29.83mm wide.

“Width” = the width of the bars only (does not include the width of the Left & Right Quiet Zones – the quiet zone widths are just as important).

“Bar Height” = the height of the bars only. You need to allow extra space to include the barcode number (which must be printed below the bars).

“Quiet Zone” = the blank space on either side of the barcode. These are compulsory (scanners need them in order to read the barcode bars).

An allowable minimum magnification of 75% (X-dimension 0.25mm) is applicable only to on demand (e.g. thermal) print processes. In this case, the bar height should never be truncated below the minimum required height for an 80% magnification barcode symbol.

Where an item may also be scanned in a General Distribution Scanning environment (automated scanning), the allowable magnification range is 150% to 200% (X-dimension 0.50mm – 0.66mm).
