Rating: OK service

Steve Herrod :

thanks, I've used Riversedge before as well - i'm a little unclear on the BRW spec though as I've not come across this before and cannot seem to find a reference to it. Where will the barcode be used?

Steve Herrod :

Cheers

Customer :

Thank you for your honest answer. Then this is not an area of expertise for you. You are just a barcode font user like me. Try Google searches for Band Width Reduction.

Good luck,

Al

Steve Herrod :

Thank you - I will take a look at those and come back to you

Steve Herrod :

As I understand it you would need some barcode creation software which explicitly supports bwr to take into account ink spread etc when printing

Steve Herrod :

there are a lot of barcode creators around but few specifically mention this feature

Steve Herrod :

although this one does

Steve Herrod :

and has a demo version to check it does what is required

Steve Herrod :

any help at all?

Steve Herrod :

Let me know

Steve Herrod :

Cheers
