Free Barcode Font – Code 39
Many sites on the web would like to make you pay for working barcode fonts. At BarcodesInc we give them to you for free. This font is not crippled or limited or anyway. It is not shareware that expires or asks for money. It is freeware. Currently, we only offer a Code 39 (AKA Code 3 of 9) free barcode font for download, but we will continue updating this page with fonts that included different symbologies (Code 128, Codabar, Postnet, etc.). Please contact us if you know of any free (working) fonts that should be added to this page.
This font will work with any Windows or Mac program that supports True Type fonts including Microsoft Access, Micrsoft Excel, MS Word and QuickBooks.

Can you believe there are people who would charge you for a barcode font like this? It took very little time to make this so I thought I’d donate it to the world. It is suitable for scanning even at fairly small point sizes (with a laser printer). I have tested printed copies of this font with a couple different scanners and it worked perfectly.
This is 3 of 9 (sometimes called “code 39”), a widely used barcode standard that includes capital letters, numbers, and several symbols. This is not the barcode for UPC’s (universal price codes) found on products at the store. However, most kinds of barcode scanners will recognize 3 of 9 just fine.
Now included with Free 3 of 9 is a new version of the font called Free 3 of 9 Extended. This version covers the extended 3 of 9 standard that includes all the ASCII characters.
Tips for Using the Barcode Font
- Be sure to add an asterisk * character before and after your text. Example *YOURTEXTHERE*
- Microsoft Word may adjust the character spacing and make the barcode unreadable. You may have more luck with Wordpad, found in the Windows Start Menu under Programs > Accessories.
