Code 39 Windows True Type Font Demo Downloads - Standard Character Set

The demo fonts include tall and short formats, each of which allows the display of human readable text below the barcode. After installation, change the way the font looks by selecting "Bold", "Italic" or "Bold Italic" from the font bar.

Demo Code 39 Barcode Font Options

Note that the demo fonts have the "E", "0" and "S" removed from the font set. This will allow you to test the font and its features in your applications. Once you purchase the full version, your application will work seamlessly! 

In order to make it comfortable for you to try the demo, we offer 2 methods of installation:

See the installation and usage video here

Install the Individual Font (.ttf) Files  

Although a bit more involved, installing the individual font files gives you more control (and perhaps more comfort) than running our installable program. Remember that there are 4 files for each font. The fonts sets differ only in the size and appearance of the human readable characters underneath the barcode.

For your convenience, we've packaged the font sets together in Zip files for you to download along with the individual .ttf files. Click on one of the links below to download the font set or individual files. If you downloaded the set, unzip the files in a location you'll remember. Then, in the taskbar, press "Start", select "Control Panel", select "Fonts". When the font window opens, up on the menu bar select "File", "Install New Font". Navigate to where you stored the font files, and highlight them. Press the "OK" button.


How to use the Code 39 Demo Font



Once the installation program completes the installation, you're ready to use the demo fonts. 

Watch the animated demonstration above.

Open your favorite application. Type in the characters you want to be barcoded, surrounded by an asterisk (*) stop and stop character. Then highlight the text. Finally, from the font tool bar, select the "CarolinaBar" font that you want to use.

Note that the SPACE is represented by the ~ character.


Character Set


Use only capital letters (A-Z) and numbers (0-9). Note that the letters "E", "S" and "0" are disabled in the demo. The supported characters are shown below with the characters disabled in the demo crossed out in red.

Standard Code 39 Demo Font Character Set

Although the font supports 43 characters, the characters "+", "%", "$" and "/" are used as precedence or control codes, giving you the ability to encode all 128 ASCII characters. Both the demo and the full version of the Standard Code 39 barcode font supports this encoding. Note that encoding ASCII characters not included in the standard 43 supported characters will require a 2 character sequence. It will also require you to program the scanner to allow "Full ASCII Mode" for Code 39 barcodes. Note that the SPACE is represented by the ~ character.

Characters requiring the precedence or control codes are described here. Click Here!

Special Notes and Precautions

Microsoft Word users must take extra steps to disable a feature which disables the ability to create code 3 of 9 barcodes.   Be sure to look at the instructions for disabling this default feature to automatically bold-face options in Word.  Follow this link for instructions.  (Barcodes and Microsoft Word) To determine it this applies to you, if you type in *123*, the default behavior of Word is to remove the *'s and boldface the 123.  You can see this with our product if the characters under the bars disappear after completing the code.
