The world's most trusted Barcode Generator Software

BarTender comes standard with a large library of fonts, images and barcodes from all over the world to help you create unique label designs that are compliant no matter where you're exporting to.

  • Easily enter print-time information with customizable data-entry forms and Consolidate label formats with Intelligent TemplatesTM.
  • Label making software that lets you print from any operating system, device or web browser.
  • Create sophisticated applications and print automatically from Web services requests, data transactions, SDK requests and more.
  • Labeling that centrally controls, secures your entire labeling system, monitors print status in real time and provides detailed history of system usage.

Mobile control of labelling eliminates time wasted trekking to a printing station. Gain the cost efficiencies and accuracy of printing the right label / list / tag / on the spot.

Printing shelf labels, online order tags and signage — when and where you need them — saves hours each week so your employees can work on other tasks, and reduces waste of pre-printed label media.
