Barcode Generator & Overprinter provides the tools necessary to create barcodes and apply them to any paper surface. Its simplicity is its savior, as it makes a very complicated task much easier.
The program's interface was the highlight for us, because it kept all of the commands and options on a single screen. This screen is intuitively broken into three steps, a layout that is so informative that it saved us from having to read the instructional Help file. We really appreciated the thoughtfulness behind Barcode Generator's comprehensive functionality, since the program not only provides an opportunity to input a barcode's number sequence, but also prefixes and suffixes, which are integral to making barcodes. One option we loved was the capability to scroll through dozens of paper and envelope choices, with Barcode Generator automatically placing the barcode in the correct position on each selection. Using these helps create a clear document, label, or envelope with a properly placed barcode, all ready for printing and shipping. The program also deals separately with the complicated ISBN barcode system, which is a nice touch for publishers and booksellers. Overall, Barcode Generator & Overprinter offers a great mix of flexibility and direction, which makes it easy enough for novices and powerful enough for expert users.
Barcode Generator and Overprinter is limited to a 25-day trial period. It comes as a zipped file and bundles applications without permission. We loved this simple program and all its many options for creating barcodes, and we recommend it.
