Barcode fonts

You should be able to use most linear barcode formats with PerfectTablePlan v5 and a USB barcode scanner. We recommend the code 39 format (also known as 3/9), which is the one we have tested most.

code 39 barcode

A standard PerfectTablePlan v5 guest ID (15 characters + 2 asterisks) requires approximately 50 mm (2 inches) when printed with a code 39 font big enough that it can be reliably read by a barcode scanner.

You can get barcode 39 fonts from a number of sources including IDAutomation, BarcodesInc and Elfring Fonts.

For more information on barcode formats and fonts see the excellent barcoding fonts site.
