Re: Source for Bar Code Labels for LTO 4 Ultrium tapes for BRMS



fixed

Hi Jerry,

The first you have to consider when you want to print barcode labels is the symbology, what type of barcode your unit will read, our LT-5 unit needs the Code 39 (aka Code 3 of 9).

As a matter of fact, I downloaded the 'barcode' font last night to create new labels for the batch of tapes we just acquired. I got the font (free of charge) from http://www.barcodesinc.com/free-barcode-font/ , installed the font on my new laptop and was able to print a bunch of labels (from scratch) in less than 30 minutes using the software from Avery (also free of charge -- I've been using it for at least five years -- great tool) .

Hello everyone,

I'm looking for recommendations for where to purchase bar code labels for
my LTO 4 Ultriums tapes.

I bought a pack of Avery 6577 labels and found an online barcode generator
http://kelvin.nu/software/barcode/, that sort of worked. I was able to
print what looked like a page of usable labels but only two were readable.
A third one worked when we put it on upside down compared to the first two,
but now we can't get the drive to read any of other unused labels so I'm
looking for another source for the labels - either online DIY or for
purchase.

Suggestions welcome.
