Code 93 Barcode Generator

With Labeljoy, you can generate Code 93 barcodes, a symbology developed by Intermec in 1982 to give Code-39 greater density and data security. It is an alphanumeric symbology with variable length. Code-93 is mainly used by Canada Post to encode additional delivery information. Each symbol contains two check digits.

Note: Check digits are added only to the barcode 93 symbol. They are not attached to the visually readable text.

Text concatenation:
When a Code 93 barcode element is created by concatenating fields or counters, the following rules apply:

  • In standard mode, the text to be encoded must contain only capital letters (A to Z), numbers (0 to 9) and one or more permitted special characters (-,., $, /, +,%, and spaces).
  • When in Full ASCII mode, the text to be encoded can contain any character up to ASCII 127.

If a value is found that does not comply with the above rules, the barcode will not be displayed.

The visually readable text can also be displayed above the symbol or hidden, according to the setting specified in the Text combo box.
