The main difference between Code 39 and Code 128 – as seen from the example images above – is that Code 128 has a much higher data density than Code 39. Therefore, we recommend you label small items using a Code 128 barcode. Most scanning machines can read both types of barcodes easily (however, some scanners are unable to read barcodes that contain alphabetic letters – therefore, it is safest only to use numeric digits, if possible, unless you know that your barcode scanner can cope with alphabetic letters too).

Note: Code 128 and Code 39 should not be used for products for sale in retail stores (retail products need EAN barcodes).

A good friend of mine was delighted with the service you provided and has recommended you – I’m just in the middle of finalising album graphiccd.. and hoping to sort out a barcode as soon as possible. Please inform me how best to proceed.” Guy V
