Barcode vendor. They also have a page on Types of bnarcodes. I quote:

  • The Universal Product Code, or UPC, is a one dimensional or linear barcode that is seen by more people than any of the other types of barcodes. UPC symbols are required in the retail industry and in the food service industry. When you purchase an item in a retail store, you will see a UPC barcode that is printed on the outside of a product, or a barcode that is printed on a paper label which is pasted to a product. Since it was adopted for international use, the UPC is also called the European Article Numbering code, or EAN. The UPC has a fixed length of twelve digits and it uses numbers only.
  • Code 39 is a linear barcode that is used for inventory tracking and other coding purposes in manufacturing and other industries. Code 39 is a variable length code. This code can be set at a length that fits the specific requirements of any kind of application. Code 39 is an alphanumeric code that can encode digits zero through nine, upper case letters A through Z, and a few special characters such as a dollar sign.
  • Code 128 is a linear barcode that is used by the shipping and packaging industries. This code is designed to be very compact. It uses the least amount of space of all of the one dimensional types of barcodes. Code 128 is perfect for squeezing a lot of information onto a shipping label. It can be used for alphanumeric or numeric barcodes. It can make use of one hundred twenty eight ASCII characters.
  • The Interleaved 2 of 5 barcode is a linear barcode that is used on canisters of 35 millimeter film and on cartons. The barcode is scanned when film is inserted into a machine to be developed. This barcode identifies manufacturer information and the number of exposures in a film canister.
  • The Postal Numerical Encoding Technique barcode, or PostNET, is used by the United States Postal Service. This linear barcode is used for zip codes that include the mandatory five digit zip code and the optional four digit extension. PostNET makes it easier to automate the sorting and delivery of mail.
  • PDF417 is a two dimensional barcode that is a portable data file which securely stores large amounts of data. It can encode signatures, fingerprints, and photographs. Some states use PDF417 barcodes on their driver licenses to encode names, addresses, driving records, and driver photographs. Airline tickets and some packages also use this barcode.
  • Data matrix code is a two dimensional barcode that arranges black and white modules in a square or rectangle. Data matrix codes are used to mark small items that are too small for one dimensional barcodes. This code can be read with a cellular phone.
  • Aztec code is a two dimensional barcode that is used in a bulls eye pattern on a square grid. This code is used by airlines for electronic boarding passes. This code is also used on some railway tickets. Japan has started using an Aztec code stamp to mark the passports of foreigners who visit Japan.

[Jan Kärrman]

Released under the GNU General Public License, BarFonts 1.0 contains fonts for the following bar codes: Codabar, Code 39, Code 128, Interleaved 2 of 5, UPC A, UPC E, EAN 13 and EAN 8. The postscript package was developed by Jan Kärrman from the Department of Scientific Computing, Uppsala University, Sweden. Printing some message text as a bar code does, for most bar codes, involve some modification of the text, such as addition of a checksum character and/or special start/stop/delimiter characters. For each font there is a Perl script and a Visual Basic script that can be used to convert a message into the correct form. Each font also comes in a non-standard variant, an "auto font", that is designed to automatically convert the message into the appropriate form. The auto fonts should be considered as experimental, and have several limitations, see the documentation for details. [Google] [More]  ⦿

One source claims that this Garamond family was made by Compugraphic and that Datascan merely changed the name in the font information field.

Commercial barcode vendor since 2000 that wove an intyricate web of various web sites and company names. It seems to be run by Brant Anderson from AdvanceMeants. Other business names: BizFonts.com, AdvanceMeants.com, MicrEncodingFonts.com, PostnetFonts.com. In any case, they sell almost all imaginable barcode fonts, including PDF417, Code 39, Interleaved 2 of 5, Code 128, POSTNET (POSTal Numeric Encoding Technique: used for US zip codes by the US Postal Service), PLANET (a new US Postal Service barcode), FIM (Facing Identification Mark: US Postal barcode for classifying mail), 4-State, RM4SCC (Royal Mail 4 State Customer Code: British barcode), and Australia Post Address bar code fonts. The demo fonts IDAutomationSC128L, IDAutomationSI25L, IDAutomationSOCRa, IDAutomationSPLANET, IDAutomationSPLANETn, IDAutomationSPOSTNET, IDAutomationSPOSTNETn can be found here. IDAutomationHC39M Code 39 Barcode (2014) is free. They also sell other things such as MICR and OCR fonts. The PDF417 font costs 300USD per user for one computer. Postnet, Planet, OCR fonts evaluation package. There is a free Code 39 font, but the same page issues the following incredible warning: In many cases, other barcode fonts distributed as "freeware" or fonts that are sold very cheap are illegal counterfeits. You and your organization may be held liable for using and/or distributing these illegal software products. Beware of companies that distribute "free" fonts from unverifiable sources with copyright notices from companies that do not exist. Learn more about how to identify and report illegal counterfeit barcode fonts. Fear tactics are well known to politicians. To see them used by a company is particularly disturbing. First of all, barcode fonts are the easiest thing on earth to make. There are totally free barcode packages that cover *all* barcode schemes, and they were built from the ground up. Their campaign asks readers to report suspicious barcodes - huh? ID Automation's definition of "suspicious" is "different from ID Automation fonts". This is bottom of the gutter stuff, and if I were in the market, I would say no to ID Automation.

Juhani Lehtiranta holds a Ph.D. in linguistics, and lives and works in his place of birth, Nurmijärvi, near Helsinki. He has been busy with special fonts since 1985. In 1990 he established font design company, JL-types Ky. Lehtiranta's special interests are typefaces for European minority languages (e.g., Greek, Baltic, Sami, Cyrillic, Central European) and custom made fonts (e.g., barcode fonts (JLCode128, JLEAN, JLCode39, JLInterleaved2/5)). He created the first fonts for the Uralic Phonetic Alphabet in 1985 and published an OpenType phonetic font in 2005.

Julie Soudanne

French type designer. Her typefaces include:

  • Typefaces designed during her graphic design studies at ECV in Paris: the pixelish typeface QR Code (2014), an untitled modular typeface (2014), Wagon (2015, a modular expressionist typeface), and Electra Text (2015, a futuristic version of Dwiggins's Electra).
  • At Type@Paris in 2015, she created the angular text typeface Pressure which has strong calligraphic roots.
  • In 2016, Alisa Nowak, Julie Soudanne and Jean-Baptiste Morizot co-designed Graphico (Indian Type Foundry): Its letterforms are industrial and square-sided. The typeface looks like the product of precision mechanics: it should be featured together with tech---either old tech like appliances or watches, or new tech like apps and laptop stands.
  • In 2016, Julie published the art deco sans typeface Eileen: Eileen is named after the Irish furniture designer Eileen Gray (1878-1976). She was a pioneering Modernist, and this typeface is a fitting typographic tribute to her work.
  • At Indian Type Foundry, Jérémie Hornus and Julie Soudanne co-designed the Spencerian calligraphic copperplate style script typeface Spencerio (2016).
  • Tabular (2016): a monospaced programming font by Jérémie Hornus and Julie Soudanne for Indian Type Foundry. See also Tabular at Fontshare.

    In 2016, Julie Soudanne and Jérémie Hornus designed the condensed movie title and credit typeface Title.

  • Papelli (Indian Type Foundry, 2016): an informal typeface family by Alisa Nowak and Julie Soudanne.
  • In 2017, Jérémie Hornus, Julie Soudanne and Alisa Nowak designed the attractive titling didone typeface Zesta.
  • Clother (Jeremie Hornus, Julie Soudanne, Ilya Naumoff, 2017, at Black Foundry). This geometric sans workhorse covers also Cyrillic, Hebrew and Arabic.
  • Baro (2018). A geometric layerbale typeface family published by Indian Type Foundry.
  • Interlink (Indian Type Foundry). A monolinear all caps stencil typeface characterized by many stencil ligatures.

Lasse Fister

Lasse Fister (Nuremberg and before that, Berlin) is a graphic designer. He embarked on a great project in 2010 called Graphicore Font Building. Starting from a bitmap (BMF format) font, via a free Python program written by him, one can generate OpenType fonts. The free program, graphicoreBMFB has many parameters/options/settings, that allow one to generate very many children of the BMF font. He showcases this by making his free superfamily GraphicoreBitmapFont. All is free and open source.

Speaker at ATypI 2016 in Warsaw on Introducing Metapolator. Metapolator is a web-based parametric font editor developed by Simon Egli, Lasse Fister, Reuben Thomas and Ben Martin.

Lasse Fister also developed the Libre Barcode collection of fonts that includes, at Google Fonts, Libre barcode EAN 13 Text, Libre Barcode 39, Libre Barcode 39 Text, Libre Barcode 39 Extended, Libre Barcode 39 Extended Text, Libre Barcode 128, and Libre Barcode 128 Text.

Zdenek Wagner makes this barcode package freely available in 2008 to the TeX community. The package contains TeX macros for printing various 2/5 bar codes and Code 39 bar codes. The macros do not use fonts but create the bar codes directly by vrules. It is therefore possible to vary width to height ratio, ratio of thin and thick bars. The package is therefore convenient for printing ITF bar codes as well as bar codes for identification labels for HP storage media. [Google] [More]  ⦿

WSI: Weatherly Systems Inc
[Mike Charness]

Mike Charness's Huntsville, AL-based foundry used to offer a huge number of handwriting fonts, and thousands of other fonts at rock bottom prices, in all font formats. It stopped selling fonts to end users or licensing fonts for redistribution in 2003, but continues OEM work.

Lists of font names:

  • Robert Long discussed the fonts, and mentioned in some cases the original fonts they were modeled after (read: copied, tweaked and renamed).
  • A partial list found in internet archives and corrected by Herbert Van Brink is here. A list annotated by Robert Long and kindly sent to me by Richard George, is here.
  • Michael Yanega published a list of the WSI Hand names and their equivalences on the ClickArt Handwritten Fonts CD.
  • Ulrich Stiehl provides a further list and explanations: Anastasia is Anna, Avian is Avant Garde, Basset is Baskerville, Bastian is Buster, Boston is Bodoni, Bulletin is Flyer, Aladdin is Legende, Palisade is Palatino, and so forth.

WSI had barcode fonts, MICR fonts (such as CheckNums-MICR), some foreign language fonts, and many dingbats. The full collection could at one point be downloaded here. The handwriting font collection (known as WSI Hand) was downloadable from here, here and here. Apparently, these handwriting fonts were obtained by first selling a handwriting font service, and then selling a CD with the created fonts.

WSI is no longer selling fonts and has this ironic line: WSI's fonts are not freeware, but are commercial software protected by copyright. Now, how did WSI start up its business? I quote from this archived page: We don't sell directly to end users, but rather provide fonts to software publishers who sell our fonts under their own labels. Current and past licensees include PowerUp, Spinnaker, SoftKey, Wayzata, Canon, Fuji, Epson, Serif, Borland, Novell, Maxis, Cosmi, Xoom, Dynamix/Sierra Online, Synergistic Software, Expert Software, IMSI, Parsons Technology, MySoftware, Abstract Software, Dunlop Corp., Case Inc., GraphicCorp, CAI, Creative Wonders, The Learning Company, Current Inc., Pierian Springs Software, Lookout World, Palladium Interactive, Philips Publishing, AIG, Asymetrix, Media Graphics, Knowledge Adventure, WIZ Technology, Paper Direct, Sanctuary Woods Multimedia, GST/GSP, Baudville, Zedcor, and many others.

Zdenek Wagner

Czech TeX and font software expert, whose place on the web is called IceBear Soft. He created makebarcode, a free package done in 2008 for the TeX community. It contains TeX macros for printing various 2/5 bar codes and Code 39 bar codes. The macros do not use fonts but create the bar codes directly by vrules. It is therefore possible to vary width to height ratio, ratio of thin and thick bars. The package is convenient for printing ITF bar codes as well as bar codes for identification labels for HP storage media. In 2010, he published OCR-B Outline. These are type1 and OpenType versions of an earlier Metafont by Norbert Schwarz (Ruhr Universitaet Bochum, Bochum, Germany). [Google] [More]  ⦿
