Barcode Printing

Dot Matrix

Dot Matrix printers are currently the most common printers among all businesses. Dot Matrix printers are inexpensive, impact printers that can provide draft, near letter quality, and letter quality printing. The image is formed by a head striking a carbon ribbon onto a single or multipart form. Typically, the print head has 9 or 24 pins which create the image. When generating bar codes with a dot matrix printer, a low resolution or density provides the best scanning results. Some 24 pin dot matrix printers can generate acceptable medium density bar codes.
