My barcode does not print on my portrait cards?

  • The printer will not print a barcode if any part of the barcode is located or positioned off of the card. If you are trying to print a barcode on a portrait card, switch the layout to landscape. If the same barcode prints ok in landscape mode, it is likely that you have created a barcode too long for the portrait orientation.

  • To resize the barcode, you can change the ratio of the barcode to generate a shorter barcode. The ratio of a barcode is determined by how many thin bars are needed to match the thickness of the thickest bar in the same barcode.
