What is a DataBar?
  DataBars, a compact black and white barcode pattern, allow users to encode a large amount of data in a small space. Commonly used to barcode small products, one often finds this code on jewelry, fruit or other hard to barcode products.

How does a DataBar work?
  In short, the DataBar is a unique code for your product represented by scannable bars.

DataBar appears as lines (bars) of varying widths representing the series of numbers commonly shown below the bars.

Barcode scanners read the bars and convert them back to the data that they represent.

When you reach an agreement with a retailer to carry your product(s), they request the information required by their unique proprietary sales and inventory tracking systems.

Your DataBar, when looked up within the retailer’s inventory system, finds the corresponding product name and price.

This information helps the retailer keep accurate inventory data, review sales, and reorder.

Please note that not all retailers are able to scan Databar codes.

I have never used a DataBar and want advice on how to implement this technology.
  The following are important things for you to consider:

Example of supplemental requirements:

  Plan before you implement DataBars.
  Carefully consider the design and placement of your DataBars.
  Verify that your retailer has the ability to scan DataBars.

In what format is my DataBar?
For your convenience, you choose your barcode graphic from four different formats so that your graphic artist, printing company, or manufacturing facility can work with your barcode graphic in their preferred software.
EPS Format - This layered, raster EPS file is the preferred format of most graphic designers due to its quality and versatility, particularly for resizing. EPS is an "exchange" format, not necessarily associated with one specific graphics program. An exchange format is one intended for multiple applications to be able to open.
TIFF Format - This layered TIFF file works well for graphic artists who need a transparent background. This format is not suitable for significant resizing.
JPEG Format - This uncompressed, high-quality JPEG file is the most common file format. All computers can open a JPEG. However, it is not suitable for resizing.
