Barcodesoft GS1-Databar font is a smart and simple solution for generating GS1-Databar barcodes.

GS1-Databar is formerly known as Reduced Space Symbology (RSS). It is defined in ISO/IEC 24724:2011 standard. It encodes more information than UPC/EAN family bar code, and it occupies less space than UPC/EAN bar code. Therefore, GS1-Databar can be printed on small items. Additionally, GS1-Databar can bear GS1 Application Identifier (AI) such as Price, Expiry Date, Coupon Code, and Serial Number etc. GS1-Databar accepts numeric-only data.

What GS1-Databar encodes is called GTIN. GTIN describes a family of GS1 (EAN.UCC) global data structures that employ 14 digits and can be encoded into both bar code and RFID. The 14th digit is a packaging level indicator. The administration of GTIN ensures it is unique worldwide.

GS1-Databar family contains 7 different symbologies: GS1-Databar, GS1-Databar Truncated, GS1-Databar Limited, GS1-Databar Stacked, GS1-Databar Stacked Omni-directional, GS1-Databar Expanded, GS1-Databar Expanded Stacked. They can be scanned omni-directionally.

GS1-Databar-14, GS1-Databar Truncated, GS1-Databar Stacked, and GS1-Databar Stacked Omni-directional have identical symbol structure and encoding rules.

GS1-Databar-14 has 14 digits. The first digit is a linkage flag. The other 13 digits are data characters.

GS1-Databar Truncated has exactly the same symbol structure of GS1-Databar. The only difference is height has been reduced to 13X.

GS1-Databar Stacked symbol contains two rows of GS1-Databar Truncated. The top row is 5X and the bottom row 7X. There is a 1X separator between two rows. So the total height of GS1-Databar Stacked is 13X. X is the width of a single bar and space element.

GS1-Databar Stacked Omnidirectional symbol contains two rows of full height (33X at least) GS1-Databar format. The separator between two rows is at least 3X in height. The minimum overall size of GS1-Databar Stacked Omnidirectional symbol is 50X wide by 69X high. X is the width of a single bar and space element.

GS1-Databar Limited is different in structure and encoding rules.GS1-Databar Limited has 74 modules. The minimum height is 10 modules. No quiet zones are required.


GS1-Databar Expanded and GS1-Databar Expanded Stacked is different in symbol structure from the previous two groups.

GS1-Databar Expanded symbol is a variable-lengthen linear symbology designed to encode numeric-only data and AI (Application Identifier). Its total symbol width depends on data encoded. The minimum height is 34X. X is the width of a single bar and space element.

GS1-Databar Expanded Stacked has the same encoding rules of GS1-Databar Expanded. The difference is GS1-Databar Expanded Stacked contains two to eleven rows of data.
