DataMatrix barcode in EntomoLabels

You can use DataMatrix barcode in your labels. The maximum capacity of a DataMatrix is defined according to the standard by:

  • the symbol size: number of rows and columns of dots
  • the data type: numeric or alphanumeric
  • in this code you can include a full, extended ASCII character set, the code also allows you to encode Arabic, Greek, Hebrew and Cyrillic characters
  • six coding schemes selected in such a way that the resulting code is as small as possible (one optimal code is selected)
  • up to 2335 alphanumeric characters, 1556 eight-bit characters or 3116 numeric characters can be encoded

Check if your printer prints accurately enough for the code reader to read a small code.

Complex templates

Using EntomoLabels, you can make quite complex templates. For example, for the herbarium – the pattern is copyrighted, I only used it to check the program’s capabilities.

Download the template (without NHM logo) and see how it was made. (Right click on the link and save the template in the folder .. Templates)

Download the template with DataMatrix code and automatic numbering and check how it works. (Right click on the link and save the template in the folder .. Templates)
