UPC & EAN barcodes

About UPC & EAN barcodes

The Universal Product Code (UPC or UPC-A) is a specific type of barcode that is widely used in the United States, Canada, the United Kingdom, Australia, New Zealand… for tracking trade items in stores.

UPC-E: To allow the use of UPC barcodes on smaller packages where a full 12-digit barcode may not fit, a sub-set UPC was developed called UPC-E.

An EAN-13 barcode is a 13 digit (12 data and 1 check) barcoding standard which is a superset of the original 12-digit Universal Product Code (UPC) system. The EAN-13 barcode is defined by the standards organization GS1.

Secure UPC-E barcodes

The plugin generates EAN and UPC barcodes as real vector graphics (no bitmap images) and they are protected from unwanted edits or changes. The barcodes can only be modified in the plug-in palette.
