TEC-IT Barcode Studio is a full-featured versatile tool that offers you all the tools you need to generate 1D and 2D barcodes in the highest resolution and quality. Its intuitive interface, together with a convenient Data Input Assistant make it suitable for all types of users, either for personal or commercial use. Its wide range of predefined profiles cover all the most widely used barcode types, from ISBN and EAN barcodes to QR-codes and postal services.

The main interface has been designed with a clear focus on usability. Divided into various sections, everything you need to design your barcode is there. The main panel on the top side comes with three tabs, which will show you a preview of the barcode selected, the data list, and the final design of your labels. Another tabbed panel on the bottom side offers all the features you need to customize your design – data, appearance, text placement, advanced barcode settings, drawing, logos, effects, etc. As it happens with other TEC-IT tools, inputting the data required for your barcodes couldn’t be simpler – its Data Input Assistant will show you all the fields that you need to fill in to generate the barcode selected, allowing you to load a data file instead that will generate all the necessary barcodes automatically.

The customization possibilities are endless. You can modify every detail, from the bearer bars to the notch height, and from the transparency and opacity levels to the quiet zones. You can rotate the barcode, change its dimensions to fit your requirements, align it as needed, add your logo or another image file, and define whatever captions you would like to add to your barcode. The only limits that the program will impose on your designs are related to the own barcode’s specifications, so that they always comply with whatever standards they have to follow.

The list of barcodes supported is really exhaustive, amounting to more than 100 and including both 1D and 2D barcodes. They offer separate licenses for those interested in 1D barcodes only and for those users who want them all. Among the linear barcodes – to name some of the more popular – you will find templates for EAN 13 and 8, UPC-A and UPC-E, Code 128, Code 93, etc., and among the 2D barcodes you’ll find QR-Codes, Data Matrix, all PDF417 variants, Aztec Codes, and Maxicodes. All of them are complemented with GS1 barcodes, postal codes, and more. The resulting image files can be saved in various formats, either bitmap (BMP, GIF, JPG, TIFF, etc.) or vector graphics (EPS, PDF, SVG, PostScript, etc.), with the resolution and the level of quality of your choice.

All in all, TEC-IT Barcode Studio is one of the more comprehensive barcode generators out there. It is not only easy to use but also extremely comprehensive when it comes to the variety of supported barcodes and output formats.
