Code 39 Barcode Generating Tool

This online tool generates a 1-dimensional barcode symbol (Code 39) representing varaible length text messages according to standard ANSI/AIM BC1/1995.

Code 39 is a simple barcode that uses no error control and a limited set of 43 characters as:

0 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 A B C D E F G H I J K L M N O P Q R S T U V W X Y Z - . spc $ / + %


Extended Code 39 incorporates 128 7-bit ASCII characters using the above set in letter pairs (e.g. '?' = '%Z')
Code 39 mod 43 incorporates error control by appending a (mod 43) checksum character to the data.
