MarkMagic 2D Bar Code for Laser Printers Add-On Option

The MarkMagic 2D option makes it easy to print PDF416, UPS Maxicode, and DataMatrix 2D barcodes on Hewlett-Packard PCL5 and IBM AFP/IPDS laser printers.

The newest bar code types known as 2D, or two dimensional, are capable of storing far more information than previous bar code types. Because 2D bar code symbologies are “portable data files,” able to encode entire packing lists or shipping label addresses, these bar code types are now specified by a number of carriers for their labels.


You no longer need a thermal bar code label printer to print 2D bar code labels. Using the MarkMagic 2D Option a standard laser printer can become a full-featured bar code label printer. In addition, certain industries, particularly those that ship directly to the consumer, require that the shipping document contains both a pick ticket and a FedEx Ground or UPS carrier label with a 2D bar code.
