How Do I Add a Barcode to My ID Badges?August 2, 2012
Written by Amy Sanders
Barcodes are the most commonly used card technology in the U.S. workplace, because barcodes are inexpensive and very easy to add to cards. Plus, barcodes can easily be combined with other card technologies, such as a magnetic stripe or proximity card.
No special card printer equipment is needed to print a barcode. Any ID card printer can do it. You simply need some type of software to generate the barcode and of course the barcode reader itself. Most ID card software programs support a variety of standard barcode types such as interleaved 2 of 5 and code 39. The type of barcode you choose will depend on your application and the amount of data you’ll needed in the barcode.
HID’s Asure ID Express will allow for sequential numbering of barcodes and even automatic population based on the entry of another field, which dramatically increases the speed of your card production process.
