BARCODE BASICS – Mac barcode software

Mac barcode software that won’t break the bank

Barcode Basics for Mac OS X allows you to generate the most commonly used barcode types. Barcodes can be saved as vector or bitmap files. It also includes functionality that print professionals need including bar width reduction (bwr), code scaling and vector (EPS) output. These features are absent from font-based mac barcode software and traditionally you had to pay heavily for them in professional barcode generators. Barcode Basics provides cost effective access to these features for a fraction of the cost.
