ITF14 barcode, also known as Shipping Container Symbol, is used for the designation of boxes, cartons and pallets that contain products with UPC/EAN barcodes. The etymology of the name is simple – ITF stands for “Interleaved Two of Five” and the “14” shows the total of numeric digits that can be encoded. These figures are divided into several groups:

  • 1st digit – serves as a packaging indicator (3 for inner packs, 5 for carton, 7 for pallet);
  • 2nd to 3rd digit – show the UPC numbering system or EAN prefix;
  • 4th to 8th digit: presents the manufacturer’s identification number;
  • 9th to 13th digit – the identification number of the item;
  • 14th digit – check digit;

There are two lines that are typical for the ITF14 and they are the top and bottom bars of the barcode, called “bearer bars”. There is sometimes a probability the barcode to be scanned diagonally and only a part of it to be read. These two lines insure that the scan is made accurately and that the whole data is assimilated.

If you are a manager of a big store or a warehouse you definitely need such black-and-white labels in order to designate all the products. Now you can make them on your own with using our encoding software – ITF14Encoder.

ITF14Encoder is ITF14 barcode generator that creates 100% functioning ITF14 barcodes perfectly applicable on your packages, cartons, boxes or pallets. Maximally simplified, the interface is intuitive and user-friendly. You will make qualitative barcodes even if you have never done it before.

You would say that manually generating numerous barcodes daily is really time-consuming but ITF14Encoder has a solution for you. The option “Bulk generation” allows you to create tens or hundreds of ITF14 barcodes at once for multiple products. Save the image in a desired image or vector format. If you choose the last you will be able to scale the image without losing its quality, which sometimes is essential for big pallets.
