How Much Information Can MarkMagic Bar Codes Handle?

MarkMagic offers a 2D bar code for laser printers add-on option. 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. The MarkMagic 2D Option makes it easy to print PDF417, UPS MaxiCode and DataMatrix 2D Bar Codes on Hewlett-Packard PCL5 and IBM AFP/IPDS laser printers. CYBRA does.

What Kind of Bar Codes Can MarkMagic Print?

MarkMagic 8 introduced cutting edge technologies that give you great ROI with support for such technologies as:

• Smartphone and Social Media QR Codes – with MarkMagic 8 you can add QR barcodes to any label or form and integrate marketing and promotion programs with logistics documents.
• Quick Comply RFID – lets you quickly and easily meet EPC compliance mandates with built-in item level (SGTIN) serialization. While previous versions of MarkMagic fully supported RFID tag compliance, new MarkMagic accomplishes this in a matter of minutes, rather than hours.

Plain Paper Laser and MICR Forms
