I am needing help with producing an OCR font on a label. The information is variable.  I have ran several test but can't get the characters to read off the scanner.  The error codes are not helping.  This is my first experience with OCR font and I would really appreciate some guidance.  Below are a list of questions

1. Is there a prefered print method for OCR font? 

2. Is there a way of grading or testing the product?  I work with barcodes a lot and we are able to identify the flawed attributes of the barcode.

3. My labels are printed with on a paper stock with a dull laminate. Could that materials be negatively effecting the scan?

 

Thank you

What software are you using to scan the labels?

Sorry for the delay in response. I am trying to get this information for you. 

 

I really don't think it's the label stock. Because of the different packaging materials that are used at the grocery store, with barcodes that are scanned on a regular basis. I am of the opinion that it is either the font size issue, or software limitation with the scanning resolution.

If you can supply some printed samples to your customer for scanning, on regular paper, different font sizes, and possibly one or two variations on the font family. I think this will vary the results and can give you some more options to try before committing the job.

Tracy,
