Incremental counters

One of the most useful features of Labeljoy’s barcode generator is the ability to create incremental counters: dynamic codes that progressively increase according to the parameters you have set.

Automatically create hundreds of barcodes

With incremental counters you can print hundreds of barcodes without preparing them one by one: Labeljoy will generate the counters for you, following your instructions. Counter type (decimal, alphanumeric, hexadecimal), step (the value by which the counter will be increased), the number of possible repetitions: these are some of the features you can easily customize.

You can export barcodes in the formats you prefer (e.g. PDF, JPG, PNG or TIFF) or print them directly on your labels.
