Free 3 of 9 Font

The Free 3 of 9 barcode font is a freely available downloadable font from Matthew Welch which can be used by many of today's barcode scanners. It provides an implementation of the 3 of 9 (sometimes called code 39) barcode standard that includes capital letters, numbers and several symbols. It is free for personal and business use but cannot be sold or included in any font collection. Two versions of 3 of 9 are included. The font called "Free 3 of 9" is the basic 3 of 9 standard. It includes letters and these symbols: $ % + - . and /. The font called "Free 3 of 9 Extended" covers the extended 3 of 9 standard. It includes all the ASCII characters.

To create a valid 3 of 9 barcode you have to begin and end it with a special character. Scanners look for this character to know where to start and stop reading the barcode. It is represented in this font with the * character. So, to create a barcode for the text "ABC123" you have to type out *ABC123*. Note that barcode readers will not include the *'s in the text they return. They will just give you the ABC123.
